Goodwood Revival 2017

I heard last weekend that all tickets for Saturday are already sold out!
That is disappointing as I have not got one and have not missed a Revival yet.
But I had decided that last years event would probably be one if my last.
I could not believe how many p155ed up hoorays were about.
The survey after the event was more concerned about which advertisers I had seen not the quality of the motor racing.
But hey ho, maybe that is a sign of the times. It is not a Motorsport event any more.
Members meeting only now for me.

What does anyone else think?

IMO you're fairly close to the mark with the above comment. I'm sure the corporate side of the event pays very well....

Luckily the excellent streaming means that we can watch the racing nowadays without having to be there!

It seems that he first invites have gone out to car owners.

There are already cars beeing advertised for sale as having an invite for this years event.
Courageous, who knows if the eventual buyer will get accepted as driver.

Ticket prices too high
Motor RACING content too low.

Agreed that the prices are high but have to disagree about the quality of the racing. The majority of the Hooray Henrys (inebriated or otherwise) and the fancy dress brigade thin out rapidly between Madgewick and Lavant.

Watching the racing at Noname and St Marys is always enjoyable and even more so when the intrepid pilots of the big block V8s are trying to keep their steeds pointed in the right direction.

But I do agree that the Members Meeting is hard to beat, if only Lord March could arrange a bit more warm sunshine in March...

In Goodwood parlance, that's probably something like this, a snip at 250 a night

A majority of races are just corporate showcases now with very little historical element or accuracy, it remains an excellent show for the majority however, most of them are blissfully ignorant of peripheral detail.
