Arthur made a little movie from his go-pro . . .I was only doing demo runs, and frankly was happy with that, the sun/shade made it tricky to see in places, especially as I didn't really know where I was going, or what was round the corner, most cars were trundling.

There's rather a curious-looking three-wheel Lamberetta 'Mink' Prototype coming up for auction at Brooklands on Saturday.

Thanks for the nice pics brands.
John, do you remember what I told you about Magny? Did you find any good pic, nice video or understandable press report? This is one of the difference between our country and yours as far as historic racing is concerned. Well to say few …

I've just got an HF2 release so far, Gerard.

Interesting that less than a dozen people posting on this event.
Does this tell us something about the popularity with the hard core enthusiasts?

To be honest, I don't think you can draw too many conclusions like that. Whilst various major anniversaries were celebrated, FoS is not so much an historic event now. Indeed much of it is looking to the future. Also you have to remember there were three major historic race meetings on the same weekend, in which some of the regulars on here were involved.

Watching the live screening for much of the weekend, FoS did look pretty crowded, but close-ups - particularly on Friday - made me think there were a lot of non Goodwood-type people there! The scrum in front of the House for the Bernie Ecclestone tribute on Sunday afternoon got a bit out of control & I'm told there were even people fighting...

John, I'm not a chauvinist you know that. I've rather rely on facts.
You could watch Goodwood on you telly, at Magny not sure the race director could watch all the races he had to take care! Remember when Simon Hadfield commented about Peter Auto having a new F2 euro grid? His conclusion was something like: lets see what's going on.
Monza, Peter Auto, 3 cars classified. Meaning that if I send my mother in law she can compete and jump on the podium. Well, jump… Magny? Average was 11 cars crossing the line. Magny FFord, no English, and very few in F3. Vox populi vox dei.

It's not an event I would normally 'do' but I was asked to assist with 2 vehicles of particular personal interest.

To be honest, a lot of it doesn't interest me, and I was too busy to notice most of the peripheral entertainment.

A highlight was chatting to Gordon Murray, thoroughly decent bloke and we shared more than a MK1 Cortina in common!

I was at FOS (and there's a thread in R&R related to the relevant content that was at FOS). It's a good event if you're interested in a broad spread of motorsport machinery and a great chance to get up close to some fantastic machines ('The Beast Of Turin' for example). I spent the morning wandering around the paddock and up to the rally stage then settled in a grandstand in the afternoon to watch stuff go up the hill. I can see why the event doesn't appeal to some people - after all a lot of the stuff going up the hill is not 'on it' and a lot of it may not appeal to people if they have a small sphere of interest (if you only like historic sportscars for example then the content may be a little thin for your tastes).

Some of the stuff I could live without (Terry bloody Grant for a start) but I can see why it appeals to people - it's a family friendly thing to stick on for a bit as filler (same with the bloke doing the wheelies and stuff on a motorbike) whilst there's a break.

For me doing FOS in a day is a squeeze - I could happily spend a day up in the woods watching (and listening to) stuff on the rally stage. It's not an event I'd do every year as it's pricey and the content can be 'samey' - I wasn't going to go this year but got offered a ticket so rude not to really

We go every year, used to be for two days now only the one.
Since I have no interest in the moving motorshow, first look, "supercar" paddocks or any car maker stands on the infield the remainer can be done in a day.
Cartier and all the paddocks, a tractor ride to the top, a wander around the rally paddock and stage and then watch/snap the field into the top paddock.
A bonus of the current hybrid F1 cars being so hard to run at Goodwood is most teams run proper F1 cars instead

Friday crowd seemed about the same as in recent years, gave up doing the Sunday as there is far too much faffing about and mobbing of the 'famous'.

After the Friday at Goodwood seeing lots of my favourite cars close up the long weekend was made complete with two days at Brands for the HSCC
