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?

Oh yes it's a very enjoyable weekend. And as I said I've found a bit more time. I'd like more opportunity to test but work gets in the way so I'm never going to be that quick.

However, being on the grid with such luminaries as Soper, Harvey, Needell et al is a bit special.

I try to imagine… Wish you all the best.

As to the rear Atlas axle, one of my blokes Dany Snobeck and his engineer found something special on the french Production cars. They replaced the anti tramp bars by two small bike shock absorbers ( Fournales patent I guess). Light, clever and very efficient. Compliant in this category but forbidden in Grp1. Of course, "some" can be found on Escort's nowadays!
Sorry if this is found slightly out of topic Passion is a powerful engine !

Yes these were not used in the BSCC on Capris but the Rovers ram them. I have them on mine and they comply with the Blue Book of the period.

Spent yesterday down at Goodwood at a trackday.

I am sure you'll all be pleased to hear that the daffodils are already out - it looked very spring like, but the temperature was still in winter-mode. Prepartion work is well underway.

BTW - Alfa going well after winter head work and adjustments to steering, Elite even better until it developed a leaky rear oil seal. First run in the Alvis special was "interesting"......

On the flimsy basis of mentioning Tiff ... I rediscovered this snap (35mm slide) of said Tiff racing F2 at Donington 1981.

Nothing to do with Goodwood, sadly.

I do have some pics of Rovers and Capris from around the same time but I think I have posted those before. Also nothing to do with Goodwood.

Hi all,

I will be attending the Saturday of the upcoming Members Meeting event, and was seeking some clarification on the dress code for us mere mortals, as the websites FAQ section is rather vague.

Many thanks,
James

You can wear your bikini if you wish. No dress code, this is not the Revival.

I understand there is no dress code per se but jeans (my habitual dress) 'are strongly disapproved of'. So I will be going to my first Goodwood for a decade in my country gent green cords and tweed jacket ; I will look like a Poundshop Peter Bowles ...

Jeans are disapproved of are they

Could a race meeting be any more snobbish?

What a farce

Pretty sure I wore jeans when I went. Must have done, I don't possess anything else beyond my Interview Suit and I sure as hell didn't wear that!
