This event is a "gotta", if you ever get the opportunity

http://www.collinsclan.co.uk/Pages/Cars/revival2008/index.html

I ran some cars while working for DK in 1998 and 1999.., I have memories of the cars and celebrities from those two years alone that will stay with me forever. An utter privilege to attend, never mind being paid to be there!

Introduction
On September 18 1948, the Earl of March and Kinrara officially opened the Goodwood Motor Circuit by completing a lap in a Bristol 400. Lord Freddie March was an experienced Brooklands racer before the War. In 1938 he had offered a part of his Goodwood estate to the Royal Air Force, who turned it into an airfield. During the War ‘RAF Westhampnett’ served as a base for among others Hurricanes and Spitfires. With peace restored Lord March decided to turn the perimeter road into a racing circuit. Between 1948 and 1966 the Goodwood Motor Circuit hosted many great national and international races. Later that same day one Stirling Moss won the Formula 3 race in 500cc engined Cooper. He had celebrated his nineteenth birthday the day before. Throughout his career, Moss had tremendous success at Goodwood, but also suffered his career ending accident on the high speed track in 1962. It was one of several major incidents that ultimately lead to the suspension of all racing at the track in 1966.

History often has a tendency of repeating itself and certainly did so in 1998 when Lord Freddie’s grandson Charles re-opened the Goodwood Motor Circuit with a lap in a Bristol 400 on September the 18th. It was the kick off of the first Revival meeting on the Goodwood Motor Circuit. The track and facilities were completely restored to the 1966 condition and Lord March asked the competitors and spectators to dress in period outfits to match the décor. He created a thoroughly unique event that quickly grew to become one of the highlights on the historic racing calendar. In September of 2008, the 10th anniversary of the Revival and 60th anniversary of the Motor Circuit was celebrated in great style in front of a capacity crowd. With various parades and displays the rich history of the track and the many great drivers that raced there were highlighted. The real show was provided by the drivers, riders and pilots that took to the track and went into the air with some of the finest historic machinery and often in quite spectacular fashion.

The Bristol 400 in the picture in the earlier posting is actually mine after a three year re-build and still not working as it should. It is now after another year and it's quite impressive. The correct registration number is JEL450 but for the Goodwood Event the same registration as Freddy March's original car was used and it shared a parade each day that included many of his previous cars.

I'm new on here and found the picture by accident whilst searching for Bristol information.
