I took a few - will see about getting them uploaded.

It was packed! I've only been a few times, but I've never seen it anything like that.

The "amphibious" Morris Minor, complete with Chichester Harbour permit, nearly had me fooled for a minute. Taking the "woodie" concept a little too far I think...



As I was leaving what looked like a jacked up Lambourgini (or possibly Lancia?) was driving in. Did anyone see it and know what it was?

Thats got to be the the largest turn out to any Goodwood Breakfast Club, I arrived at 0750 and was able to drive straight in, after admiring all the exhibits I left at 09.45 and they were still waiting to get in.

Here is a selection of the shots I took
Check out the bumper sticker on this TVR awesome

Couldn't believe the wheels/tyres on that S2000 (above). I wonder what the insurance assessors view would be if a car like that had an accident and was found to be wearing tyres that were clearly several sizes too narrow for the rims? Plus, it looks very silly indeed.

I asked the owner how much it rubs; he claimed it didn't at all. I suspect this may not be entirely truthful, given that there couldn't have been more than a couple of mm between the tyre and the arch.

Well, unless he's removed the suspension.

I had a similar conversation with a similarly setup Golf owner who claimed no rubbing but then I watched him gingerly trying to navigate what are some very small bumps that nobody slows for.

I do have an appreciation for these modifications but I can't imagine they are safe for a second.

I sometimes check out Canibeat for the sheer effort put into the cars; http://www.canibeat.com/
