I agree with your comments Mike (and others on this topic) but the strange thing is that throughout the year Goodwood's media streams appear to persist in showing 'hairy moments' and damage - as if that's what attracts people (entertainment?). Maybe it does (for some)?

Plenty of good cars and racing at Goodwood without the BTCC superstars. It's a good thing to my mind at least that we may not see them there next year.

When Mike (and he is the President of the CSCC) and Andrew Jordan race with CSCC, the CoC always makes a point of making it clear that the club has high driving standards and doesn't tolerate BTCC behavior.
They are always good as gold.

That does seem contradictory, and makes me wonder if those in charge of PR are detached enough to not be influenced by what the organisers may be trying to achieve....

I don’t think anyone is suggesting otherwise......

I suppose I was just making the point, Mike, that BTCC drivers can drive "properly" when required. They drive like they do in BTCC (and Goodwood) because: a) no one tells them not to and b) they can.
If Goodwood enforced decent standards, then it wouldn't be an issue. And given that the track hasn't changed at all, perhaps they should enforce decent driving standards. A "big one" might see the coverage on the 10 O'clock news, and that would do Goodwood ,and the sport, no good at all.

I think it only fair to advise that we all attend a mandatory briefing on the Friday before the MM weekend and we are told that poor driving will not be tolerated. The fact that a complete cockwomble drove into me and two other cars at the start of the Sunday race, causing severe amounts of damage makes no difference.

Also said cockwomble was invited to the Revival too.

Then they clearly don't "enforce decent standards" then Peter. Therefore they do tolerate (or even condone) it, and you, and others, sadly suffer. Words are cheap; action, and damage to other people's valuable property is not.

All Post Chiefs should be watching for "ify" driving not just DSO's . It is what the COC does with the reports that is more important!

SWCRacing has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Think you will find that it was Martin Donnelly.......
