Many thanks to all of you who attended yesterday.

 

Mike Wilds talked for 2 hrs about his career as a professional racing driver. It was highly entertaining, delivered with great modesty bearing in mind some 53 years of completion and massive amounts of success and race wins in just about any category you could think of.

 

My thanks as always to Jane, Bill and the catering staff and to Christine & Geoff  who keep the show on the road.

Those of you who did not attend missed a very  interesting talk on both the past and present motor racing scene. Put 27th April in your diaries for our next event .

This was yet another great day out. Mike's recollections and anecdotes about his more than half a century in motorsport were both poignant and fascinating, the films were interesting, informative and entertaining and the food was (as ever) superb. Add to that the pleasure of spending time with friends old and new and it becomes obvious why these events are always fixed in my diary. Congratulations and thanks are due to all those concerned in organising and running the day.

Thank you Richard and the team for organizing another excellent show. Mike obviously loves motor sport and his story was extremely well told with splendid candour. How the Goodwood organization can refuse his entry on the grounds of not being high profile enough is beyond me and the rest of us who attended.

I'm very sorry I couldn't join you, as a last-moment work project got in the way.  I had been looking forward to hearing Mike talk.

A lovely day, listening to Mike, wonderful stuff. I was probably at Brands watching him race his DRW all those years ago, a lifetime watching Mike race. So modest, and such a story to tell. Thanks to Richard and the “A “ team for all the hard work, preparation and super catering, appreciated.

Hello Richard!

 

I got 85 points in the Christmas Quiz. Is that good or bad?

Ouch - I got 81, in the 'long' quiz  (although I might dispute one of the answers given...).

 

(I was not able to download all the parts of the other quizzes, so could not attempt those.)
