another year........ another trip with the Saab 93 convertible down to the Goodwood breakfast club soft top sunday....... a celebration of open air motoring. Lots of great cars- was really pleased the Saab got some good interest, especially as she was on display next to a Ferrari 360...
I've got two Admission tickets for the Friday (ie tomorrow) Goodwood Festival of speed.
I now cant go so there sitting on my desk.. Anybody want them... only stipulation is that you actually use them & have to collect them cause its too late to post, unless you cover my postage costs of...
The Aero-X went up and down the hill - but with the doors ajar! Some sensor fault. Eventually fixed back in the paddock.
Fixing the doors is no longer a spanner job!
Full set of my Aero-X pictures here
And all the photos of the day here
Just home from the Goodwood festival of speed >>>>>>NICE ONE TALLOW<<<<<< (he took me over in the Ruby )
We wandered into the Cartier stand and there in the middle stoos URSAAB the 92 prototype...AMAZING!
I know Tallow is up for it but is anone else going to Goodwood F.O.S on the Friday...courtesy of the Times or as a paying visitor? Some of the S.O.C. members are travelling in convoy from the West so maybe we could come in from the East (with the sun behind us they may not see what is coming )

Celeron 433...56K modem...
When my Aero's hub nut came loose with no suitable tools to retighten it, I went for a walk around the circuit with my video camera and shot loads of footage.
Must get myself a better camera. The quality of the footage is not great and I wonder whether it didn't like the cold?
Anyway, I wanted...
Here's a little snippet of video of me getting a little out of shape at Woodcote corner and the Chicane
(Both about 1.4Mb for 23 seconds)
Thanks to Ylee Coyote for the camera work. I should have some incar footage of that, aswell...
Starting off the pictures then
We had an excellent Saab turn out- well done all. At one point I think there were about 15-16 Saabs in the paddock!

The imaginatively titled "Saab 9000 Aero at Goodwood" started out as an attempt at extending the Ferrari/Porsche clip, but ended up as much more. I produced it for Naranto's Bristol Classic Car Show stand where it debuted and this version is only slightly different.
I make no apology for the...
