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!
