    Goodwood

    I had a great day out on Saturday at the Goodwood circuit with the AC Owners Club at their annual sprint meeting.
    Some great people with their cars and it really was a great day even if the weather was very wet.

    Cheng and I shared my car for the day and it was great to see Cheng not only win the Class, but also take the outright fastest time of the day

    I would highly recommend this day out to everyone!!

    Andy.

    Hi Ian,
    I have a couple of very brief vids of Cheng in my car that I will try to put up tomorrow as not sure I can do it from my phone. I was fairly busy with the car so did not get many pics, but I will see what I can put up though.

    I am surprised that the AC Owners club let you in with a replica. In my few encounters with them, they have tended to be quite stuffy about our plastic copies.

    Glad you had a good time though and look forward to the videos.

    I found everyone from the AC Owners Club to be very welcoming and a great bunch of people who made us feel very welcome.

    - so did you state 'up-front' the car was a replica, or just show up?
