How long has the company been called Daimler and not Daimler-Benz?

Since 2007. It's not been Daimler-Benz officially since 1998.

In these brand/trademark obsessed times one wonders what the owner's of Jaguar make of that web domain?

I saw today that the temporary footbridge across the road carries a large banner reading 'Gurney for President'.

Forza David E. Davis, Jr! With hindsight, I am even considering forgiving C&D sticking a straight-six Pontiac engine in their project E-type :p

I can't remember if it was there last year, but it spans the road from the outside sales area near the back of Bonhams to the inside trade village.

And I see Bonhams are selling the Kieft-FPE.

Recalling my awful experience on crutches at the FoS last year, I do hope there will still be ground-level access to get across the road.

There are two tunnel access to the Paddock/infield.

One is via steps, the other which doubles as a vehicle access is ramped.

Thanks for that advice but the tunnels you refer to are for crossing (under) the circuit itself. I inferred from the posts above that the footbridge is for access from the car parks and the fairground area across the public road to the circuit itself, rather than for access from the outfield, over the track, to the infield.

Am I wrong?

A footbridge will be very useful for those who park in the pre-66 car park and aren't GRRC members. The shared public tunnel under the start-finish straight can get very busy.

I got a bit of a shock yesterday when I discovered that Saturday, and hence weekend, tickets are already sold out. I have now booked for Friday.

Just for info, at current state of play it looks as if 14 Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union 'Silver Arrows' will attend the Revival Meeting, ten of them running on track. In a recent Mercedes-Benz test session I'm told their chosen drivers were "...going like HELL!". Fingers crossed...

The public road traffic is controlled and halted by marshalls to allow safe acces from the carparks to the race circuit

Saw W154/15 driven by Rob Hall at a recent Donington test day, thanks to a tip off from Mr Ferrett, sounded great while it was being warmed up but Rob had trouble getting it to run cleanly on track, when it finally did the test had to be cut short thanks to a water leak. Hope the the good folks at Crosthwaite and Gardiner managed to sort it in time for the revival :smoking:

I think there will still be a crossing point from the main carpark to the main pedestrian entranc; the bridge is additional, from the outer trade area to the inner one.

For those of limited mobility there should be opportunities to cross the track at the chicane end of the pits between track action, as well as through the main sloping tunnel normally used by vehicles.

I stand to be corrected, but from what I have been told by an established trader, all the regular trade stands/tents as we know them will be across the road, with only recognised "Brands" being on the mettalled area behind the Chicane and Woodcote stands, alongside the Tesco lookalike, the de Longhi coffee bar, Kenwood 50s/60s kitchens etc etc.. Hence the need for the bridge I assume.

You're too young Doug. I saw Brooks and Collins driving a 154 and a 125 hard in the wet at Oulton. And I've got a 12"x10" Autographed photo of them. So there

O/T a bit, but there is a good photograph of these 2 nose to tail, Brooks ahead of Collins, at Lodge in Oulton's booklet for 25 years of racing at Oulton. Purely by chance I came across the booklet yesterday looking for something else.....
Roger Lund

That is the photograph I have Roger, taken by Frankie Penn and autographed by the two drivers with an inscription from CASB to "Dear Francis..."

My Bonhams catalogue has just arrived, and I find it admits two to the Revival Meeting itself. I know that's been the arrangement at the FoS, but I wasn't aware it applied to the Revival too.

Anyway. this means I've got a redundant Revival entry ticket for Friday, and Goodwood don't do refunds.

Cost price was £36, I'd happily forward it to a TNFer for £30. Just send me a PM.

I mentioned this on the F5000 thread but I raise it here as well. I will by departing Sydney for the UK in a couple of days and bringing a few copies of the new Tony Loxley & Ray Bell F5000 book for a few former F5000 personnel. I have space for a couple more copies and would be happy to bring them along to Goodwood for collection. If any members are interested please send me a private message…. regards.

I'm happy to meet up Friday lunchtime :) ( Sat and Sun lunchtimes I'll be 'working' at the Earls Court motorshow)

Don't know this year's schedule, but usually around 1pm is the track display followed by an air display which sort of averages out as a lunch break for most folk :)

I see they're still quoting the 1934 Eifelrennen paint-stripping myth. :mad:

However ...

The Swiss Grand Prix was won by Lang ahead of Caracciola and von Brauchitsch. Lang also won the German Hillclimb Grand Prix on the Grossglockner pass, thereby securing the 1939 German Hillclimb title. He was clearly the season’s top driver, but with the outbreak of war the authorities responsible, the AIACR in Paris, were unable to award the title of European Champion.

Looks like someone may have to miss something in order to make a TNF meeting possible at all, not having a timetable makes this doubly difficult ):

Hmmm.

Checked a couple of hours ago to see if Sunday tickets available - breathed sigh of relief to find out they were. Got distracted. Just revisited to order my ticket - find they've sold out.

Am keeping my eye on eBay, but if anyone finds their circumstances change and they can't go, I'm looking for just a single Sunday ticket.

A long day trip from Cheshire, but looking to repeat last year's epic journey, meeting up with Giraffe at 6.00am, and expecting to arrive home around 1.00am Monday.

Fingers crossed!

No, they don't do that (unless you are a competitor) - you have to buy a very expensive programme on the day to get the entry lists.

However, on Friday evening after practise they put up links to the timing site which lists the names, numbers and details of participants.......so if you are going on Saturday or Sunday you can print those.

THe programme cost is comparable to similar events that I attend.

As well as half price programmes for the Revival and Festival, GRRC membership gives you 10% off tickets for both events, access to the GRRC pavilions at both and to the paddock at the Revival and a number of other benefits. I think it's still good value.
