Goodwood Revival

PostPost by: lance54 » Wed Aug 08, 2018 7:24 pm

I will be making the trek over the Atlantic next month to attend the Goodwood Revival. Any of the local Elan Faithful attending?

My father and I had this trip planned back in 2001 but the tragic events of 9/11 thwarted our plans.

This time it's me and by bride of 40 years.

Perhaps we will meet some kindred spirits during our stay.

It is the most amazing weekend.
If you are in the area, don't forget the cricket match on the Thursday afternoon on the lawns in front of Goodwood house.

We have squares too, mostly people who drive Chevrolets and Fords. :wink: And here in New England, that's the place in the center of town where we put the stocks. In my home town, it was a triangle, but that did not affect the name.

It's nearly time ...

I'll be there for the 3 days and parked on the Lavant Bank and I'm contactable on 07788 593388.

If people want to meet up we could arrange a time and place in one of the non-exclusive paddocks with the saloon cars where any Elans/Elites/Cortinas will be lurking.

Hi Clark
I won't be going to Goodwood as I am off to Spa for the classic 6 hour race weekend. Plenty of Elans there unlike Goodwood.

Have a great time

Anyone else on here off to Spa??

Cheers

Hi Paddy, doing Wed- Mon! Will pop by and say hello and generally drool over your car.

As Dave says, no Elans on the entry list ( unless I missed one).

We are attending Friday/Saturday/Sunday.

I'll plan on Lavant Bank Parking.

Can be reached via text or phone at 7322366715

Sadly my planned participation this weekend at the Lime Rock Historic races was abandoned because of illness. Doc says with meds I'll be ready for Wednesday travel to the UK. First Lime Rock Historic missed in 15 years.

Really looking forward to this adventure,
