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?

gary396 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Can't remember if they stream the MM live like they do with the Revival. Hopefully they do.

Hardly inclusive though is it, regardless of your opinion about what is value or not.

Very inclusive, as anyone can buy a ticket - up to the licensed limit of the venue. The fact that they always sell out is proof of how popular it is. Exactly the same principle as seeing a top act/band/group at the Albert Hall f'rinstance.

Who can confirm that? Hope the inboard cameras are allowed too.

Just checked on Youtube - looks like it will be shown live by Goodwood:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVdoiyZi8xg

The coverage is normally very good.

They have done in the past. Does it say anything on the site?

Yes it's on Goodwood's site - 'Scheduled for 18 Mar 2017
Live stream will be broadcast over the weekend and repeated overnight.'

Quite fascinating to see how many spectators an event like this can attract. I guess in the first five minutes each spectator knows the racers all the first name. In France its a little bit different… in the first five minutes each racer knows the spectator all first names!

It's like that here at most meetings Gerard . At Croft the crowd is often three men and a dog (or un chien peut etre?) ' The dog often sneaks off home early, moaning about the thin grids and crap catering ...

Having done 14 revivals in 15 years ( missed one when Arthur was born 2005) the last few years I've watched the bits I'm interested in via the stream, it's very good.

Quite right, un chien peut etre is excellent! Apart from lets say 3 or 4 events in Europe, the average historic meeting doesn't appeal very much. I'm really curious to see what's gonna happen in Magny this year.

As to the MM, hope there are some stickers available with warning like this: "Capris may be closer than they appear in the "Mirror" !

David, if you can buy a ticket you are a richer man than most of the race fans I know!

This event is, for me, a type of Royal Ascot race meeting, a Lords Test Match, an exclusive Barbara Streisand gig at a small venue.

And the only people that can warrant spending that sort of money are erm, rich.

Last test day today, no charge for spectators. That's assuming you live within spitting distance as I do. I promise not to pick the daffodils! No official entry list yet?

That doesn't warrant decrying the event though. Other people enjoy it and enjoy the fact that the likes of me can't afford to go. And if you compare the price per minute of entertainment to a Premier League football match then it's remarkable value.

Something doesn't have to be cheap to be good value. Mind you, things don't have to be expensive to be good either!
