Rolf

If you want to get Goodwood Revival tickets, we'll be there on the Friday (12th Sept)... so the best day may be the Saturday or Sunday ;D. I am sure that between us we can get you around... A couple of us will not be in Pagodas for whatever reason (Garry has wimped out from shipping his car over from Oz, for example!). I do need to know if you need room and board though! PM me

Aww come-on James, I had hoped to have my car there but when I learnt that US was not having a PUB this year, my plan of shipping it to LA, driving to Ohio and then on to NY and shipping it to Southampton fell over.  I have put it back on my bucket list for one year in the future when both US and Euro are having a gig.  Interestingly enough I did cost it and the cost of doing it is not much more than a business class ticket. (Maybe I need to leave Kate home and bring Bella the Pagoda instead.

Thanks James,

I need only a entry ticket to the grounds one day will be all I need as long as I have a chance to see all them fine Pagoda's/Pagode's and meet some of you fine folks :)

I will be travelling from London, UK to the site and back in the evening to London (by rented car). I will be staying with family members in London, UK. I read somewhere here or in the other thread that you all be driving in together was this on the Thursday night and you be on the grounds all day Friday? Perhaps you can confirm that. I will then build my three week trip around my Hamburg and London, UK visit.

Thanks again and thanks for organizing all this!

We will be arriving en masse  (assuming we don't get lost!) from the Chichester side and likely pretty early in the day (before 8.30am). Goodwood has Pre-73 parking which I always think is as much fun as the event itself. Arriving en masse means we can park in the Pre-73 area together. We can park there anyway, but you might be parked next to something other than a Pagoda :P

If you are coming from London, leave early if you are on the A3 (main and signed route and thus very busy) or get a Sat Nav and come down the A24 and via Petworth if arriving later. Jay bought Friday Revival entry/grandstand etc tickets yesterday
