Players classic at Goodwood

Post by Aaronslimvw » 16th February 2020 - 6:24pm

Anyone going to this? A huge range of show/classic/race cars and Track action in the best possible setting. My fastback will be on show in the meguiars paddocks. Here’s the link-

Would love to, but it's a million miles from me and it'd take 2 days to get there :crybaby: :crybaby: :crybaby: :crybaby:

Likewise for the Volksworld show, just to far away :crybaby: :crybaby: :crybaby:

Yea its a 6 hour stint for me as well.. and thats in a “normal” car. A mate of mine is trailering the fasty to the show for me , and that goes against everything i believe in lol. (Not a fan of trailer queens) but don’t want to risk hurting the car so far from home.

I've driven mine home from Spa Francorchamps in Belgium to Bristol in one go. Just over 9 hours driving, bar the 35 minutes parked on the Eurotunnel.
Isn't that the point of having a classic car?

Drive it daily through the summer months.. and went to edition in Northampton twice last year 4 + hours each way.. so it definitely gets driven.

You can do it, I live north of lincoln. But moved down near southend for a year and the fasty was my daily. Used to drive north to south a couple of times a month. Near enough 180miles each way.
