I've seen photographs of Goodwood in the 50s where people are wearing t-shirts and shorts. I'm sure that wouldn't be allowed today as it's not considered "period".

They haven't made a Lambretta (in Italy) since 1971 . . . there's more 'period history' in that photo than the average Goodwood photo.

To be honest, it was all trials gymkhanas and rallying for Scooters until the late 60's when racing became more prevalent, even then it was very much a club affair, and usually centred around Isle of Man week. racing now is still a small niche club affair, and surprisingly fast!

It depends how you wear it I suppose.

An interesting couple of demos lined up for this one. https://www.goodwood.com/grrc/event-...h-speed-demos/

Oddly enough when we mentioned Thruxton earlier my memory went back to the F5000 races.

There are quite a few Gp5 cars regularly racing in Peter Auto CER, so hope some of them get invited, and not just a few museum specimens! Not sure if there are any of my favourite type, the Zakspeed Capri, active, but think Ford Germany have a running example. Would also be good to see a genuine Zak Gp5 Escort, but again, not sure if any 'runners' in Europe?

Mike, hi there, you are correct that FoG do have a Zak Gp 5 Capri in running condition ; it used to be on permanent display in the reception of Ford Lommel, but I'm not sure they would be willing to run it (has always been a very budget concious company) & all their historic road & race cars are very rarely seen in public ; Goodwood may be seen as worthwhile however.

By the way, do you know that they open the test tracks for bicycling one day per year ? It's a great day, normally attended by local workers & bike clubs, but actually open to anyone who turns up. I did it several times as a former employee & then a regular visitor & it's really interesting to ride the tracks on a bike, a completely different experience vs hammering round in a prototype !

The whole area around Lommel is really nice for cycling (& drinking & eating) much overlooked by most visitors, other than the Dutch. I'm a big fan !

Would be great to see more exotic Fords out on track.

I can well remember standing on the old scaffolding terrace just after the chicane at Thruxton and it vibrating every time the Formula 5000 field went past !

Regarding the Easter Revival at Thruxton I think I remember the HSCC's Graham White saying that the HSCC members were reluctant to return to Thruxton after Mike Lane's unfortunate accident in the Clubmans race . A great shame as I thought this meeting complimented the Castle Combe Autumn Classic nicely with most of the cars being from the generation of cars after those that appear at the Autumn Classic .

Finally , next year marks the 50th Anniversary of racing at Thruxton (in its current guise) and I was wondering if there were any plans to celebrate the anniversary and if so what form they might take .

This is off topic but if that is the beginning g of June I believe MRL may have an announcement shortly.

I think the other part of the problem for Easter Revivals, no matter how pertinent the name, is that Easter moves every year and plays havoc with the calendar.

Furthermore, when it is early, and especially when it is very early, it's probably too early for the weather, having cars ready and many of the possible entrants and drivers.

But apart from that it's obviously a great idea ... if it wasn't for all the numpties who think it's a good opportunity to get away for a weekend and clog up the roads.

Agree. I think the Ford museum Zak Capri may be the one that has run at the FOS in the past. May have run at the Oldtimer as well in recent years.....
