    Glorious Goodwood

    What better way to kick off the season than Goodwood on a beautiful sunny day? This wonderful track just seems to be made for GT40's, (mine certainly loves it here) and it simply oozes history. We were there for Goodwood's own GRRC Sprint and what a fabulous day it was. A really diverse and...

    Buzby rides again!

    We had a fantastic time last weekend at the Silverstone Classic. We were invited to compete in the Celebrity Charity Challenge. This was another two race event, sharing the car with a Celebrity who raced on the Saturday, whilst the owners raced on the Sunday, with all the proceeds going to...

    J.W.E. Check List

    A friend of mine saw this at an auction and very kindly thought of me. I think it gives a remarkable insight into the lengths that JWE went to to prepare to win. I thought you chaps might like to see them too.

    Goodwood Easter Sprint

    Dusted off my Southern GT and headed down to Goodwoods own GRRC Easter Sprint on Easter Monday for some hydrocarbon fun. Amazingly for a Spring bank holiday the rain held off and we had quite a pleasant day. In contrast to the same event last year which was cancelled due to planes being upside...

    Crank angles

    Does anyone know what the crank angle at BDC on the intake stroke is on a Ford 302? It is 540 degrees for a SB Chevy (sorry about the language!) and it would be easy to assume that it is the same, but we all know what assuming does! Thanks guys

    Goodwood Revival II

    Finally ticked my top bucket list box and got to drive at the Revival! It was all I'd imagined it to be, what an experience! I was invited to compete in the St. Mary's Trophy (a two part race) so I was paired with Rob Huff who raced on the Saturday and I did my bit on the Sunday. What a lovely...

    Fast Lady

    We had a great day at the B&HMC eagle Sprint in the ’40 at Goodwood recently. Always a fun event, this one was memorable as Tammy, my far better half, won the fastest Lady of the day award! She hasn’t stopped grinning yet! I’m really chuffed for her and a bit worried too – I’ll have to up my...

    18th June 1815

    I'm surprised that the anniversary of this illustrious date has nearly slipped by without our very own Colonel demanding that we all stand to attention and salute - as indeed we should, quite rightly. It may have been 'the nearest run thing' but it was a bloody well done thing! Three cheers for...

    New Jaguar Lightweight E types dubbed replicas by Goodwood

    Just watched a programme about the 6 new lightweights that Jaguar are making to complete the unfinished original batch of 18. They are truly beautiful exact recreations, built by the original manufacturer in the same factory using the same bucks, tools etc. They cost around £1m and you have to...

    Chasing P1055 at Goodwood

    It's taken me a while to rescue this from my SD card, but this is me chasing P1055 in my Southern GT at the Goodwood Sprint back in May. Figuring out how to change the date and time stamp on my recorder is now quite high on my to-do list! Glenn

    Goodwood Spring Sprint

    I had a great day at the Goodwood GRRC Spring Sprint on 10 May competing against a really eclectic mixture of wonderful machinery. It was a shame the weather ‘wasn’t at its most helpful’ shall we say, but it was still bloody good fun. Goodwood just suits the GT40 so well with its fast flowing...
