As the event clashes with a BTCC round, that should rule out a few potential entrants.....
Probably about half the grid,I think potential would be almost certain entrants at Goodwood.

Headline in Historic News section of latest MotorSport Mag-

“Goodwood might rue BTCC clash” !!!!!

So says a BTCC driver.

I may possibly not agree......

I dare say some dilettante MM visitors (or are they 'guests' in Goodwood's parallel universe ?) might be disappointed not to be able to pursue Jason and Gordon et al for selfies but I go mainly for the cars, not the drivers...



Not that some BTCC pedallers aren't seriously quick drivers but AN Other in a Cobra or Ash Sutton in a Levorg -not much contest, right ?

Well, in my opinion (others of course may want to disagree ), the two drivers quoted have made themselves look a bit silly. I’m being polite here......

Off topic, but there is also an excellent piece by Doug Nye about the state of historic racing. In his opinion, of course! (But spot on....)

Neal, and I thought the other was Sutton- but it’s actually his father who has been quoted. They may have a point, but it does come over like when kids have had a couple of their favourite toys taken away.....

Just to clarify- BTCC clashes affect the Revival and MM.

Well I sympathise it's an event where they can race with absolutly no responsibility for the consequences.

But there is the point that Jordan and Team Dynamics are now into building "historic" racing cars. They bring quite a few cars to the events. You may recall I raised this issie in another thread.

On your second point- they’ll have to do what Delta and other preparers do when they have cars running at different meetings on the same day or weekend- spilt themselves in two!

I wonder if its anything to do with the fact their cars aren't in any way historic and are tipping the scales just a little too much, even by Goodwoods calibration?

As a humble spectator at Goodwood i say good riddance....i also go for the cars and the atmosphere which in my opinion is not enhanced by Plato and co.

I’m wondering if we’re seeing a change in “attitude” from Goodwood? The statement they put out in answer to the comments from BTCC Drivers was not very sympathetic.....

The Revival and MM organisers have got three main concerns, in my opinion.....

Lap times getting faster. It’s been suggested to me that their circuit licence could be in jeopardy if the quickest cars get any quicker. That may or may not be the case....

Driving Standards. Negative reporting in the press and on social media seems on the increase....

Non compliant cars. (Not including the races for ‘Goodwood Specials’.)

Sadly the genie has been well and truly let out of the bottle, and it will take some effort to get it back in. One BTCC driver quoted in MotorSport was suggesting that spectator attendance will be down in 2019 because he and other current drivers aren’t there. Time will tell!
