Goodwood wot an event
I was there early and the marshals where a little asleep I was sent to the wrong car park and then again. I was sent to the front gate where I was waved through!! I asked where I shall park "oh pre 1966" they said!! I am a 69 shhhh,, over there they pointed where i drove amazed around the perimeter of the famous good wood track and took in the sights, and I did not even show a ticket. Driving past the main entrance for the second time it looked rather manic and spectators where now flocking into the event so I parked up in a gravel bay by the loos as you come in to the left on display to thousands. Anybody see me? I was not supposed to be there!
So the Elan was represented in a little showing for its 50th Birthday at the Good wood Revival after all
Hope You like the Martin Stretton Elan Pic My mate Matt took it,, thanks to Matt

Thanks for posting; presumably the brake light switch was faulty? Any info on the other "Gold Bug"?

Please feel free to post more shots. :D

No; Jackie Oliver was in that race, driving his old car, but it's red.

I think the other gold bug was Sean Walker (Ian Walker's son).

And one taken in the pits on Saturday the 15th! My first visit to Goodwood and I was not prepared for the huge variety and quality of rare cars. To roam the pits and hear them run and smell the Castor oil-just wonderful! How about over a dozen 250 GTO's? Eric
