My how time flies, the wife and I went to The Goodwood Revival classic motor racing meeting a month ago and I have only just found time to quickly put up a few photos from the weekend.
Thursday started with our drive down to West Sussex in our 1947 Mk VI Bentley and to go to Goodwood House to watch the annual cricket match and to meet friends.
In the evening we booked into the rather splendid Old Railway Station hotel in Petworth where we have been staying for some many years, great fun as the bedrooms are converted railway carriages.
Dashing off to the Badgers Pub next door to meet friends and have a fabulous night, then finally to bed.
Friday morning and off to the circuit and a quick visit to Bonhams auction, sadly there was nothing within my price range! I seem to remember the Bugatti was priced in millions.
The rather splendid W O Bentley was somewhat more reasonably estimated.
Back to The Badgers for grub, quite a few drinks and a fabulous time chatting with friends again.
Saturday and off to the circuit to spend the day flitting between The March Enclosure, The Members Enclosure and the multiplicity of shopping outlets for vintage clothes and other things.
There was a fabulous WW2 display which stretched the entire length of the straight, very impressive.
More of the same on Sunday including a quick visit to the paddock which was next on the agenda.
As a Bentley owner and member of the Bentley Drivers Club the highlight of the racing weekend for me was the stunning vintage Bentley race, sadly I was too engrossed during the race to take a photo but here they after they finished.
The weather during the weekend was wonderful which helped to make this one of the better Goodwood Revivals we have had, however I always think the thing that makes the weekend is the time spent with friends. I must say I’m looking forward to next year already!
