Meeting in Goodwood (23/12/08 ) Back

02-03 september 2006

This year the Sabras and Sabres are meeting in Goodwood - UK.  goodwood is a race-circuit that's been in use (even for Formula I) untill 1966.

Each year in September the early-sixties-days are revived and the oldies are racing again: at the steering wheel you'll notice Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jack Brabham, John Surtees, Phil Hill, driving-tutors of men like Schumacher.

Those days a race could be won by a combination of a good mecanic and a good driver.

Nowadays to win a race you need a combination of a good driver, good mecanic, good computer, good tire-designer, good lawyers and very much cash to pay them all and to get enough influence on the rules.

Thanks to our English friends who arranged for an early subscription some Sabras-Sabres were to be on the spot in Goodwood.

Thanks Jaki & Tony .. and Geoff

This year over the weekend 1st 3rd September the meeting will be based at Hickstead in West Sussex . We have chosen a comfortable hotel set in spacious grounds with its own small leisure suite. On Saturday we plan to spend the whole day at Goodwood enjoying the sights and sounds of the Goodwood Revival Meting. On Sunday there will be a short drive to the Bentley Wild Fowl & motor Museum followed by lunch in a pub in a small village adjacent to the hotel. We expect to see about nine Sabra and Sabres over the weekend.

The pictures.... we'll need some more inspration (time) to add the comments.
