Goodwood Revival

I am off to the Goodwood revival Friday and Saturday, I am only 2 1/2 hours from it but have never been yet. I have been to the festival of speed twice but this is my first time at the Revival. I will report on any Corviar sightings, there are a few over here so you never know! Anyone making the trip over the pond to attend?

Maybe the former Rick Norris blue "Sunoco Special" Corvair will be there, I thought it went to GB.
I wish someone would make another "John Player Special" V-8 like the one that cleaned up in Australia one year.
I'd sure like to see an air cooled Tatra V-8 that runs with an exhaust diffuser instead of a fan. The sedan looks a little ungainly but the open wheel version looks good. Probably too loud for most venues these days.
The Goodwood Revival looks like great fun in films and I hope you have good weather.

My '64 track car (in my signature) went to the UK but I do not know its current status.

Jim,
I hope this is what you wanted? The intro is in Czech, so you can squelch sound until the five minute mark, then you'll hear that glorious V-8.

Yes I've seen and heard videos of the Tatra sedan with the diffusers but I'd love to see one in person. I saw a picture of an open wheeled car too. I wonder if they only made one of each or if there's more.
Most Tatra V-8s have two fans on the rear of the engine in the same plane as the crankshaft pulley which is nifty as well.
I brought it up because it's the sort of cool stuff that might show up at Goodwood.

The St. Mary's Trophy is my all time favorite. Big Block Galaxies and T-Birds racing against small, 4 cylinder British cars from the 50'-60's. And they are all so competitive. In a world that screams for diversity this race sure has it with the cars they run.

It is great racing, cars mildly sliding (not drifting) through corners and not darting like a go-kart either. Here is a You Tube link, select the race that interest you. St. Mary's Trophy Race

Well I didn't see any air cooled action but a great weekend! If anyone is thinking about making the trip it is about the best event I have been to in the UK.
