Goodwood Revival 2016

Well, what a crowd puller that little Triumph TR2 was! It was unbelievable the amount of people that came on to our stand that either had one, or their father had one, or were busy tinkering with one.

The weather was rather wet and undecided on the Friday, soaking for the Saturday and brilliant for the Sunday, but funnily enough the Friday and the Saturday seem to have a bigger crowd and garnered more interest for the Museum and for the Beaulieu One Hundred. No, they weren’t seeking shelter from the rain!

It was good to see a strong membership turn out – but I imagine the event had more to do with that – than anything else!

What a great event Goodwood Revival is! The persona of the people seemed to alter perceptively as they became the clothes they wore. Gentleman seemed to come out, hats were doffed, as ladies walked by elegantly – it really was like stepping back in time.

It was good to meet a number of new members, I’m slowly getting to meet you all. Hopefully by the annual dinner on the 15th of October – which is the next item on the calendar – I will get to see you all.

I was almost tempted to adopt what would effectively be our youngest member Henry, who is 11 years old. What an interesting young man and such a pleasure to speak to. He and his brothers have built an MG and done all sorts of amazing things with their cars in France – their enthusiasm is refreshing and engaging. We have encouraged them to start a blog  – I hope you enjoy following their progress.

From here on some pictures of the weekend.
