Hmm, thereby hangs a tale.

A lot of people have a beef with Chris W but I quite like him. I did wind him up a bit last year at Portugal after his BTCC emulating run in that Jaguar. He took it in good part.

The Goodwood PR people seem fixated by it. Perhaps their motorsport knowledge is limited to that they see on ITV.....

I suppose that the problem is to the casual punter, BTCC drivers are the second highest profile racing drivers next to F1 because of the coverage the series gets on TV and other media.
It's only the real enthusiasts who know the truth!

At the end of the Press release re the "pro" drivers is this puzzle for media people to solve.

Well, bear in mind Revival is a 'retrospective' event!

I was contemplating how far forward or back I might need to go to find a Friday 24th September.


Decided it's not worth the effort!





However I am fully supportive of keeping an event current as long as possible having spent so much preparing for it.

With due resect to our honoured members, I suspect advertising the presence of;

Peter Mallet Mike Bell, John Ruston
n .. might not grab the average punters attention to the same degree, as Jenson Button, Gordon Shedden at al, even If I would much prefer the former names.

I find interesting to share a car with a pro driver. Not only for lap times but to help in finding a better set up and suggesting ideas you didn't have before.

Goodwood media department is not what it was; it used to be run by people who knew what they were doing & what they were talking about , but like much of the rest of it, have strayed too far from what was once a very good event. I've only missed two Revivals to date (force majeure!) but I am not bothering this year - there was a time when I said if I only did one event a year, Revival would be it, but not any more.

So, sorry Baubel, but I will not be able to enjoy a breakfast bap with you whilst watching the early-morning aircraft arrivals, as we have done on a few occasions!

True. But Peter Mallett would promote a different reaction.

All the negatives about the Revival are valid, and I doubt I will go again, but that apart there is no finer place to be than at the exit of Madgwick watching a top driver skitter a historic car through on the edge and then howl past just feet away over the fence. That I do miss.
