Better on the official website track stream than ITV4 or YouTube. No adverts and the stream quality is better.

Watching this now, that last race the classic touring cars was excellent, I wanted that red Cortina I think it was to beat that gold Studebaker though, also Tiff Needle was in the race as well as Rowan Atkinson.

That electric drift car looked a bit of a effort to handle though, I wonder if weight is an issue for it?

I see that Becky Evans / QueenB is presenting as well.

The racing is great, but the extended adverts for manufacturers thats on now is boring. I wonder how much the manufacturers pay for this and FOS to drive their cars around and have presenters pretend to be interested.

The red Cortina was driven by Andy Jordan, loved his skills in getting around corners, on board footage made it look like very hard work. A bit more straight line speed and he would have taken the Studebaker I reckon

Just watching the classic F1 cars gathering in the paddock for their parade laps. How come there are so many Barbour-wearing hunting shooting fishing types wandering around? They don’t seem to be part of the support teams, judging by the way they are dressed mad

People that go to watch get dressed up in old type clothes.

No ideas for a name

Jaaws point was that no one who isn't directly connected to the event should be there.

What chippy crap.

They’ll be involved in some way, car owners/drivers not in that race, organisers etc etc.

Honestly, is that what you really notice?!

Yes, it is. I'm just envious really, Goodwood have several hundred quid of mine in ticket fees, I wish it were me wandering around laugh
