Been watching some of the Goodwood Speed Week recordings on my Tivo box plus got some more to watch on catch up. Some great racing with with 60s saloons, 60s single seaters and sports cars. Worth looking for on ITV 4 Hub if you haven't seen it already.
Personally I enjoy this sort racing much more than the F1 which is being dished up at the moment, way too much technology in it for me. :coolsteer)

I enjoy it as well but they should give more coverage to all the cars in the field not just the first three, a bit more tech info such as engine size, car history etc wouldalso be good.

Now there was a real racer - Gerry Marshall - I’ve got an old copy of his autobiography somewhere which I still have to read after picking it up at Silverstone Classic a few years ago. I wonder where his old cars Big Bertha etc are these days.

SWMBO and I love going to Goodwood, we alternate every year between the Festival of Speed and the Revival.
This is how motor racing should be, not the multi million pound roadshow that is now F1, far too much technology, far too many rules, girly drivers that only talk about 'the team', and 'strategy', I cannot watch it any more.
Goodwood is real racing no 'Strategy' or 'comms', just seat of the pants, hold tight, get there first, racing, with a great sound track.
