Goodwood 1st November 2014

As a nice way to bring the season to a close, four pilots took their cars to Goodwood to take part in the AC Owners sprint meeting. Xavier and Jan in Norton powered Starides, Mark with the Creamer and Mike the Iota using JAP horses. Chairman Challis was also there in his lovely Morgan.

After a damp but mild night, the track had quite a few wet patches as well as blown leaves in places. However, with the sun out and a light breeze, these issues were gone by mid morning.

Practice consisted of one standing start lap continuing on into a second untimed circuit. The start line is at the end of the pit lane and the finish line at the beginning of the pit wall, cars then leaving the circuit just after the start line back into the paddock. Caution was the order of the day given the conditions, each if us finding the cars very twitchy. Still, we all enjoyed it and all times fell between 130-133 seconds.

The timed runs began just after lunch. The sun was shinning brightly and the track dry and consequently our times on the first run fell by between 10 and 14 seconds and then more again on the second run as confidence grew.

Proceedings were complete by mid afternoon, all of us having greatly enjoyed ourselves. Maybe next year we can be an invited Club to what is a very well run and fun day.
