For those of you who have not noticed what has spawned from the BRABUS Kent Thread , there are a number of us heading down to the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Friday 11th July.

Getting there for 07:30 am and should be a full days fun.

Going down there with a Smart-owner mate, many thanks to GDC200 (and Sym :p) for sorting out the Brabus stand passes :)

I will be going on Friday 11th as well, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the private viewing of the SLR on the Mercedes stand, so depending on what is allowed will take some pics and post these.

Is there anyway of meeting up maybe in the early afternoon? I have not been to Goodwood before, so unfamiliar with the layout etc. Maybe we should aim for 3:00 somewhere central? Any ideas?

Koolvin, Sym.


I'll try and catch you guys online tonight or tommorrow to discuss arrangements -

but I have been warned that it a small lane leading to the entrance at Goodwood and the q's really build up (like Santa Pod I imagine).

Are you guys really prepared to get there for 07:30?

I am, but from Heathrow we need about 1.5 hours I would say.

Been reliably informed by a colleague (who just so happens to be marshalling on the F1 paddock) that Nick Heidfeld has been given a few days off by Sauber to attempt to beat his longstanding hillclimb record. Plus the other F1 teams there will be having a proper crack at it too :eek:

Excellent day as always. Regretting not being ****d to take my camera now...

We had a very funny conversation with Lamborghini's chief test driver Valentino Balboni - when asked whether the new Gallardo was a better drive than the Murcielago, his diplomatic reply was (in very softly spoken italian accent)
There are many different type of beautiful lady
