    I've been going for years, taking my son for the past few years. One day is no longer enough, we missed so much this year.
    It has been my favourite day of the year for a long time.
    It's like Brooklands on steroids. The only car we send is the Napier-railton and I was chatting to the guy who was their with it and he recommended that , if ever I get offered the chance to drive it, I should say no as its difficult to drive.
    I'd have to think about that one...

    Just watched the video - it really, really does not do it justice, that was their highlights? There is so, so much more to it than that.

    Neil,
    Really enjoyed the email you sent me with all the pics from Goodwood FOS, like the "hot rod lawn mower" too... lol
    Hoping to schedule a trip there next year, now I'm all rev'ed up about going even more. Have to hook up with you guys to get the real tour.
    Nice to see the sun shining there too and also the pics of you and you adorable son...

    The pics really don't do it justice.
    If you do want to come next year and want a hotel you will have to look out for the announcement of the dates, any hotel near will be booked up within hours of the announcement.
    You would love it.
    If you do come, let me know and I'll see what I can do to help, it would be great to show you arround.

    ^ I found this site that offers a package deal, do you know if it is any good or the way to deal with it? Or, can you suggest or know of something better?
    Really going to be tough to schedule everything not knowing when. How soon do they release the dates?

    Then I find this site that says the 2014 event is 12th July 2014 - 14th July 2014. What's up with that?

    Not sure about the first site - seems ok but I've nothing to compare it too, I'll look out and see what I can find.

    The second site does say dates are not confirmed, would they take a booking for goodwood weekend whenever it is? Worth asking, Midhurst is a lovely village and not far away (if you look at the map, I was bought up in Worthing and lived in Bognor Regis for a while, this area is home to me)

    I think it was August last year the dates for this year were released - but then they changed them shortly after as the German GP was on that weekend and the F1 teams couldn't make it.

    If you can find somewhere that would take a booking now for whichever weekend it will be then that would be easiest as it could change - accommodation will be the most difficult thing as everywhere gets fully booked very quickly.

    Rain? I can't remember that!

    Now that's something I've not been able to say since 1976

    Good weather, the Lions winning, Andy Murray wining Wimbledon, Winning the Ashes, the Olympics being a success -OK, I'm in a coma, we all know that any one of these things is impossible.

    I'll wake up soon - or has He'll really frozen over?

    Man we've had some weird weather today. Almost 100 throughout the entire day and now it's dark, stormy, and humid. It's been raining for almost 2 hours now.

    We have rain in the forecast for the end of the week, hope so.

    Michigan, of course. Our weather here is really weird. We're supposed to have high 90's to early 100's until Saturday.

    Crazy. All of a sudden the wind started, major dust storm (haboob) and now it is raining like hella for the last 10 minutes, hope it last a while. Monsoon season here is so weird.

    Love upper Michigan area. Boyne Mountain, Cadillac, Gaylord, Traverse City. Beautiful country.

    Ok, rain stopped now, no wind, sun is coming back out. A nice treat though. Dropped the temp from 110 to 88 in 15 minutes.
