The new race for A series powered pre '66 Sports and GT cars is quite interesting - The Weslake Cup. Anyone know if this will include some of the Mini specials like the DART, Jem, Marcos, Ogle, Unipower or Deep Sanderson? Are front wheel drive permitted?

Yes, the Fordwater Trophy a years ago was for exactly the cars mentioned, so I'm sure this race will attract almost exactly the same grid. It was an interesting mix of cars and a great race!

Weslake Trophy for Sports and GT cars of the type raced at Goodwood between 1958 and 1966. This could include Mini specials but I did hear it was for rear wheel drive, which could be great news for Deep Sanderson, Landar or Unipower GT, if there was room on the entry list (which I did hear was already full). Anyone have any more details?

Sadly not. Although the MM entrants pay to race at the meeting it is still very much 'by invitation', so I wouldn't be surprised if the entry list is already complete....

I'm told the invites are out but as I'm not home I don't know if I have an entry. Can't get a reply from Goodwood.

Indeed. This year the G Marshall format has changed. Saturday is a race into sunset for the two drivers. Sunday is the owner's race.

Is there an entry list online yet? Can't see anything on the Goodwood site other than a timetable.

I'm guessing the combatants know the entries, certainly for their own races if not others.

Interesting- the lack of posts talking about the meeting this year. Novelty worn off?

There's probably a lot of holding cards close to chest or cynicism growing about some of the cars/entries!

No, no that would never happen...

We tested last week. Beautiful sunny day obviously arranged by his Lordship. *tugs forelock*. The Capris are substantially quicker but then they have some young hotshots in them. Also they have the benefit of some very good suspension mods.

I found out where Tiff was going wrong and he'll be quicker come the race.

All the Rovers except mine have switched to fuel injection. I've refused simply because as much as I respect the person who says they all did it in period, I've yet to find any evidence. So my car is approximately 40bhp down on the others.

The good thing is that during testing I went quicker. So based on the above I'll still be a slow thing in a slow place but everyone else will be faster.

Hey ho. At least Ken is getting my HTP organised.
