Thanks Matt :thumbsup:

This weekend also sees the Goodwood Revival Meeting, one of the biggest gatherings of historic cars, motorcycles, aircraft and, er, clothes!

Unfortunately tickets are sold out, but you can keep up with the flavour via the website:

Thanks, Galahad!
I forgot about the Revival; Speed Channel usually broadcasts' it during the off-season but most years there's a mention of it on the Speed Report....... 8-)
Seeing as I've got more hope where I currently am of seeing a squadron of tutu wearing pigs do a formation fly past and acrobatic display than I have of seeing the BTCC championship if someone could let us know how it goes that would be great.

Ha LOL no worries - Just watched the first Moto race (125s) from the brand new Aragon circuit, not too bad for a Tilke design and has a series of downhill turns called "The corkscrew" - wonder how he thought of that one ;) and a stunning last lap/last turn lunge for 1st from Pol Espargaro.
