PH End Of Year Meet: 18/12/11

Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Who said 2011 PistonHeads meets were over? Did you think that in the midst of a classified overhaul we’d forget the pleasure that is an early alarm call on a Sunday morning? Of course we haven’t…

On Sunday 18 December we’ll hold the PistonHeads end-of-season Christmas party at none other than Goodwood Motor Circuit. Yes that Goodwood, the famous one. Why is this meet called a party? Because it’s a PH meet with a twist you see, and it is Christmas after all.

Held in the Goodwood paddock and pit straight areas, we can host up to 800 cars on the day and will follow the usual Sunday Service rules of opening at 09.00 and ending at 13.00. The Goodwood catering facilities will be on hand throughout the morning and as per usual your car will be the star (well, not yours Riggers).

I mentioned a twist, didn’t I? Let me elaborate. As it is Christmas, Goodwood will offer up a prize of two tickets to the 2012 Festival of Speed for the best-decorated car/person capturing the spirit of Christmas. We’ll add in a pair of tickets for the Autosport International show as a second prize too, so get thinking...

To reserve your space please sign up to the calendar in the usual way and nearer the time we will e-mail you a PDF to print out and display as you arrive. Do you need a better excuse to avoid last minute Christmas shopping?

And if you want to help PH out with a spot of marshalling on the day, please send me an e-mail...

The guys at Goodwood have asked us to pass on the good news about 2012 FOS tickets too, they can now be purchased here More details on FOS can also be found here.

Ps - please remember: it's Goodwood Motor Circuit we're going to. Not the house, or the (horse) racecourse, or the hotel, or the golf course, or Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, or even that gravel layby at the top of the hill overlooking the racecourse...

    Does this mean i could turn my car into one of the most impressive at the show? smile

    I really should resist the urge in case of snow since it takes 2 hours for me to get there.
    Still. FWD and grippy Pirellis ftw.
    Also means getting up at 6am on a sunday.
    Putting my name on the list. but we shall see what happens.

    Was just the other day looking at the Goodwood Breakfast Club website to see if they were doing their usual thing with a Christmas market and there was nothing listed......... so i guess this is the replacement for that smile

    Out of interest is there a Crimbo market to go with this ? Not that it makes much difference to me either way but 'er indoors might like to know wink
