I've been to the Festival of Speed many times but never made it to the Revival. Perfect way to start - I'm up for it

James,

Count on me and at least one of my daughters (probably Mary Catherine again) or my wife to attend.  I still have a pagoda floating around somewhere in Europe that needs to wind its way back west and Goodwood would be a great stop!

Hope you and Tamara are well!

Best,

Count me in. It will make a change to use the Pagoda in the UK rather than all these empty mountain roads here in Spain.

Hoh no, it looks as if Goodwood - I would like to visite once -  in mid-September 2014 collides with the yearly national heritage weekend in Holland. During that weekend our home, a 17th century town hall, is normally open to the public. So I am not yet sure we can count in. Sorry.

Very sorry, Peter - - Yes, I am jealous, because no, I'm not able to make it for so many reasons.  Alas, alack and woe.  Really brilliant concept though; I think the GR might be my very best yearning, the image of Sophia Loren having faded a bit.  I shall wave my cap in the air for you lucky few; make the most of it.

You guys are in for a real treat.  So envious.  I went to Goodward in 1999 and will never never forget the spectacle.  Simply amazing being able to get up and close with some of the most famous and valuable pieces of machinery imaginable. 

Don't know if it is still the same but none of the cars were roped and you could wander the pits and rub shoulders with quite a few of the legends of motor sport.  I remember turning around and coming face to face with Sterling Moss and Nigel Mansell.

I had just purchased my first ever digital camera and went crazy.  Fantastic memories.

In particular the silver arrows blew me away.  Have uploaded a few pics of a few mercs at this meet.

Wish I weren't on the opposite side of the world.  Hope you all have a blast.

OK.... Someone from the UK needs to step up and help organise! I have a rough idea of what might work but...

AND

an update.... the on site "pop-up" hotel is now saying that the rooms will be about double the price they originally gave me, so I am looking at an alternative that would involve us driving in (early) Friday morning and out that evening. I figure that £200 for a room for the night, exclding tickets etc is a little steep. The "market will bear it" - ie, they will sell them at that price but I think it's likely a little rich for us, making the weekend very pricey!

In the autumn I shall start work with the organisers (Goodwood) and see what can be done as an alternative.

Thanks for the expressions of interest

I will be attending the Revival on the Saturday, and will be parked in the pre 73 car park. I will be there along with friends in their black W111 convertible and a Mk2 Jag. We normally get pretty way laid in the car park itself as there is so much to see and there is nothing like a good car park picnic when the weather is good.

I am sorry that I won't be able to help with any logistics, but with my own experience when arriving at Goodwood, its best to arrive in convoy as you get told where to park so trying to set up a general parking assembly is pretty difficult.

My car is silver / black and reg is 828 HP if your passing.

Hi All

Im going this year too, on Sat and Sun. Although I couldn't commit the date a while back, I finally managed to get the tickets! Its a SOLD OUT event now! Anyway, I will park in the Classic Car Park arena, so if there is a place to meet or park our cars together that would be great! Looking forward to it and hopefully the weather will keep. Last year was brilliant!

We could all gather here in Oostduinkerke, 5 minutes from the French Border and about 40 minutes from Calais.The neighborhood here is used to see my 250 SL driving by almost daily actually, that would be awesome to have a convoy of Pagoda's. Doing that we might consider to drive to cape blanc Nez , wonderful drive along the ocean up and down curvy roads....thats my favorite drive.

Nothing can be fixed until we have had conversations with Goodwood and they won't let us start those until this year's Revival is out of the way - so end of next week at the earliest to START conversations with them

I will be in the UK and Germany in September traveling by train (I did the train using the RailPass in 2011 and it was great). I will be joining 20 Pagoda's in Hamburg, Germany on September 4, 5 and 6th. My plans are to make it a 3 week holiday visiting family apart from the Hamburg meet. Two of the Pagode drivers in Germany will have no passenger and I am invited to drive with one of them during the Hamburg meet since of course I cannot take my Pagoda along. :)

I will be in London, UK and am thinking of scheduling my holiday in such a way to take in at least one of the 3 days at the Goodwood Revival. I'm wondering what would be the best of those three days to attend.

I notice that that Erik might not have a co-driver (passenger), unless he intents to take part in the racing events? I would be happy to meet him (provided he does need a co-driver) in Brussels or any train station along his route. I assume the caravan would be taking the EuroStar to London, UK.

I will be flying in from Canada into London, UK scheduling my holiday around the Hamburg meet and the Goodwood Revival event would be no problem for me. In any event I like to attend one of the days I would be making my own way from London, UK to the event (should there be no offers as a passenger), and return to London, UK since I do have family in London, UK before returning home to Canada.

Should anyone from France, Italy or Germany drive to the event (and is in need of a co-driver that would of course share with the petrol) my 3 week train travels include stops in Paris, Zurich, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Berlin and Hamburg of course.

Edit ... "Goodwood" typo
