On Saturday 25th October 2008 at the Goodwood Circuit near Chichester the Vintage Sports Car Club held their Speed Trials – all were welcome, and four Teals and half adozen Tealers enjoyed a picnic, and exploring the delightful,exotic and oily pre-war machinery in the pits – including an Albert, Bugattis, Delage, Alvis, Maserati, MGs, Morgans, Amilcars, Aston Martin, Invicta, Fiat, Lea-Francis,BMW Stutz, Talbot and Voisin…..

These are some of the photos taken by Tealers on the day….. we hope that you enjoy them:

Homeward Bound

The day out at Goodwood VSCC was a splendid chance to mingle with original cars of the 1920s and 1930s at very close quarters, chat to their drivers and see fine feats of fettling continuing up to the last minute before the timed sprint slots – the sights, sounds and smells of Goodwood are delightful to the enthusiast’s senses. Strongly recommended!
