Was hoping to see some footage on TV. Anyone know when and where?

Want to see the six wheeled theme on F1 cars. P34, March, and Williams.

Edit to add:

Bizarrely it's on Sky sports 2/3. When you'd think they'd show it on Sky F1 channel that's just showing re runs. Sky Sports isn't included with the F1/HD package.

Maybe Sky don't think their F1 audience demographic is interested in historic racing cars?

Perhaps! Maybe the BBC aren't interested in anything other than F1 and The Voice so Sky figured they would pick it up?

As far as I can recall, the BBC have never covered the Festival or the Revival at Goodwood. The only coverage they ever had was of the early Festivals which they used to include in their "Top Gear Motorsport" programme.

ITV tended to cover both events, sometimes excellently and sometimes very much less than excellently.

I usually wait for the official DVDs to come out as they really are good.

Watched last night's Sky show and seen a bit of today's so far. Far too F1-orientated for me. And then they interview the F1 drivers and talk about last week's race and next week's. I don't want to know that, there's plenty other opportunities for that. I want to know what they think about being there and what they think of the old cars etc.

The DVD is always better than the TV coverage. It looks at the truly historic cars and drivers and is usually hosted by knowledgeable chaps such as Doug Nye and Alain de Cadenet.

A few yards up the road and that would have been nasty.

Sky coverage is shocking - they seem to know nothing about the cars, Crofty was embarrassing.
It shows Goodwood as almost a different event.

Please let Henry Hope-Frost commentate.

People seem to have this idea that Reidy's nothing but a stock car driver from his days in the BTCC. He's a lot better than that, the guy's got total commitment in anything he drives. Not bad for a 50-something!
