Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2011

Post by Tow Itch on Mon 18 Jul 2011, 1:19 am

Dear All

Wed 29th of June saw friends and myself set off south for Chichester and Goodwood's festival of speed.
On one level it's a load of has beens racing cars up a blokes drive, but in actuality its a bit more than that.

Now as you may have guessed his drive is a bit bigger than yours. Well it's certainly bigger than mine.
In fact it's so big someone dumped all this old steel pipe on his lawn.

 As Rolf Harris would say "Can You Tell What It Is Yet"

 The first day is majorly about companies trying to flog cars that I can't afford. (anything new) Now if you get snobby and put ropes round your cars like Rolls Royce (Badge Engineering It's A BMW)You let everyone see you ripped off an old Rover.
Look it's a beefed up Rover P5B

 So it's quiet the first day well it is at 7am.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
So the crowds are less so it's easier to see the cars, be it the old "Flying Fag Packets"
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Or something more modern.

 And so back for dinner.

Now what is it about some of you liking fairy lights.
please note also the curtains around the chemical loo. It's not the 60's fabric fest I considered but 4 shower curtains from Aldi at £4.99 each provided modesty curtains for both beds the loo and the lad kipping in the awning.

More of this rubbish to follow.

Kevin.
