European Event, September 2014. Goodwood Revival
« on: October 02, 2013, 21:21:03 »
Folks, this is going to happen but we need to firm up numbers BY THE END OF THE MONTH (October) as the Goodwood Revival tickets go on sale then!

As mentioned in my original post, it's not going to be cheap - the UK isn't!
But here's what we know:

Accomodation
Likely to be in the region of £175/€200 per room per night including breakfast and we are still firming up where that will be. However, we will likely spend 2 nights at the Brooklands Hotel next to the Brooklands Museum and Mercedes Benz World, with whom we are in discussions about using their facilities including the track on the Saturday morning. In all likelihood we will be there Thursday and Friday nights and move to another location for Saturday night. Dinner location(s) and cost tbc.

The original idea of staying at Goodwood has fallen by the wayside as the company that do it are still undecided if they will even be at Revival next year - and were (even more) expensive!

GOODWOOD REVIVAL
Tickets for the Friday:
~£38 per person Entry ticket- you can't get in without one but this is the only "compulsory" item
~£30 per person Grandstand ticket. This is the "roving" ticket allowing access to any grandstand and thus somewhere to sit... Also useful if wet, like this year!
~£12 Programme - including Goodwood Radio earpiece - the radio broadcasts have a good reputation as they interview owners, drivers etc as well as explain what the heck is going on! This costs 25% more on the day
 
So for 2 of you, that's between €90 minimum and €170 all in. Prices above are 2013 prices and of course may increase but if we block-book more than 40 Entry tickets, they are discounted by the vast sum of 5%. Programme/grandstand tickets will be 2013 prices plus whatever they reckon they can get away with!

As the tickets go on general sale at month end and will go pretty quickly, we need to get accurate numbers - and deposits from you - for your attendance. Access to the Pre-1973 car parking is free (woohoo!) and we will aim to arrive in convoy early on (Gates open at 07.30) but departure time will be up to you! We will provide routings to/from that avoid the worst of the traffic.
Revival Friday is testing day and normally less crowded.

BUT when is it?
"I am afraid to say that we do not know the dates as yet ourselves even. We will have provisional dates within the next 2 to 3 weeks and these will be released on our website as soon as we have them." - This came from the Goodwood Ticket Office this afternoon!

However, based on the dates of the last three Revivals, we are assuming it will be the weekend of 12-14th September. As soon as we hear something, I shall post the dates in this thread.

This means the European Event itself will most likely be from the evening of Thursday 11th to morning/lunch on Sunday 14th September 2104 so folk can head home

What you need to do
All you need to do is decide if you want to come, can make those (approximate) dates, and before Saturday 26th October :
  • Post a reply below saying you will be coming (so others can get an idea of how many of us will be there) and
  • PM me an email address that we can use for correspondence


Once you have replied, we will get a booking/options form to you which will include some bank details to you requesting a deposit of £200 payable by the end of the month. By which time we will have exact dates AND be able to secure the Goodwood tickets on the 31st October. That will also firm up numbers for discussions with hotels and so on. By way of comparison, the Ardennes event was about €700


Goodwood Circuit is the perimeter of a Second World War airfield and became a circuit in 1948 and was last used in anger in 1966. So anything from between those years is welcome as can be seen from the pictures in the link (although Mr Bean is lost on me but Rowan Atkinson is a bona fide petrolhead with a McLaren F1 (and races his cars at Revival) so that's OK)...
https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&q=Goodwood%20Revival&tbs=imgo:1
As you can see, dressing "in period" is encouraged...

And my current favourite image...



If you'd like to come for the European Event itself but NOT Goodwood, that's OK, just let us know! But we suggest reading through the following link first!

Thanks and looking forward to seeing you in September

So far I've had
interest on here and no PM from some of you
PM from some of you and no interest expressed here
and
not all PMs have had an email address.

Really folks... it's not difficult ::)
If you want to come...
it'd be nice if you'd POST here

you MUST PM me with an email address - I'm too lazy to be chasing down email addresses! ;D

We are prepping a form to complete etc but I'd rather put bank details in an email than post them on here :o

This looks very promising, I'm thinking of participating... one 280SL / 1968 and two people all dressed up in '60s style (not sure what that would look like).

Will most likely attend some of the European events (with wife) but probably not Goodwood itself. As I'm in East Sussex, which is quite close to Goodwood, it's unlikely that we will need accommodation.

Hope my engine work is done by then ! :(
