    I guess I'd better clear my diary for October!

    Sounds like an interesting event, wonder if it will become a regular feature.

    Let's hope we can return to some semblance of normality by next year's event.

    The best part of this is that we continue forward to our cherished tradition and we learn to adapt!

    I caught a bit of this yesterday while I was in a cafe having lunch, great to see it being shown on regular TV.

    Im really hoping this becomes a regular event

    We watched the three regular programmes and a little online too, this weekend would be a good addition to the other two weekends, a friend down to the revival a few years ago(complete with period car and costume) and said it was the best thing ever, just made me more determined to attend, before it’s too late.

    I watched a race in Goodwood Speedweek via YouTube. A guy who started last and finished third in the podium! Great overtaking and cornering! Good fun ::psy::

    I watched most of the Sunday coverage as well. Always an enjoyable event, even in this age of COVID.

    Love the sound of the V10s and the screaming RPMs! Gone were the days when you have to place ear plugs while watching Formula 1.. :(

    You can't describe the sound to someone who hasn't experienced it. It was LOUD!!!

    We live 8 miles away from Brands Hatch and I remember growing up, we could definitely hear when there was an F1 race going on!
