Just an update for those of you who may think I've bought a new ZF 5 speed with your deposits ;)

We have Goodwood Tickets for the Friday - that took most of the funds
We are trying to pin down some hotel rooms - by some I mean 34 in mixed formats. I think we are getting there on that. Saturday 13th is proving tricky as apparently people like getting married on September Saturdays (to be fair, I did on Saturday the 20th, albeit many moons ago) and a big wedding requires a load of rooms!

As soon as we have hotels confirmed, I will update you again. However, things are moving...

James,

Am I not in, having just spent $5k on tickets to get there? Panic.

The last communication I had with you on 09/10/2013 was

Quote
I plan on booking some "spares" as I know we're a long way out and if
they don't go, I can sell them on at cost so take as long as she needs:
You'll be in a rental car so all I need to worry about is tickets (not
pe-73 parking)

Tickets are still available for Goodwood,  so if you still fancy going but have not yet booked with James then get ticket here

https://ticketing.goodwood.com/Packages.html

Then let James know you want to be added to the hotel rooming list. Worst case you will be at a hotel close to the first group that are booked up to now (including Garry  :) ) but hopefully all will be in same hotel.

Hi all

Im based in the UK and I'm still waiting for confirmation of another family event that weekend of Goodwood Revival. Most likely it will be fine for me to come on the Friday and the weekend. I will make my own arrangements for tickets / accommodation (friends nearby), once all is confirmed.

What I would like to ask is that if I can join on the Friday / rest of the weekend with my car if I book my own tickets? Or do I need some special pass to be in the area of the Pagodas Celebration?

Thanks

David - make sure you get "tax free parking" and nearer the time, drop me a line and we'll arrange a meeting point on our way into Goodwood so we "all" (yes, I am being VERY optimistic) arrive, and thus park, together

Hello James,

Very pleased to hear from you. I understand that the task is not easy, but am sure that you will find good accomodation.
We will not come from Australia, but will have to book the ferry well in advance.
Do you have more information on the program of the event ? What about getting in Southampton (from Dieppe or le Havre) on Thursday ? morning or afternoon ? and about leaving Goodwood on Sunday afternoon or Monday morning  ?

Jean Michel

We've been working on the principle that most of those arriving from across the sea will use the Dover or Harwich areas so have been aiming for the first hotel (we have 2) to be relatively close

However, I can assure you that Southampton would be an EXCELLENT point of arrival, as would Portsmouth - far better than Dover ::). Not too bad for departure either! Tis all the younger folks getting hitched that has made the hotel thing a little challenging but Andy has, I think, got us over the line.

Next week will be an update via email to all those who have signed up

James,

I didn't book anything for the moment, so Dover could be an option.
I just need to know when and where the event will start/end.
Will welcome your mail.

Hi James,

I posted in the original thread ... I shall post it here again.

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 typo "Goodwood"

UPDATE May 30, 2014 ...... Unfortunately I must cancel my trip this year due to declining health of my wife. She is now in a wheelchair and my travel plans for the foreseeable future have to be put on hold.

If you are talking about the 'Revival' at Goodwood then all tickets would have been sold out ages ago.
