Hi Richard, Thanks for the advance notice regarding our Goodwood geek meet. It was suggested at our recent Birmingham meet that - for logistical, convenience and practical reasons - it would be a good idea if all attendees would stay at the same accommodation. I've been trawling the internet and have noticed that hotels in the immediate area are already charging silly and outrageous money for bookings during the Goodwood festival but there are very reasonable prices available at Ibis Budget Hotel, Portsmouth which is approx. 20 miles from the event so I'm throwing in that suggestion as my 2c worth. If I find any other suitable accommodation I'll post the details. I know it's very early to be choosing a place to stay but attendees can number over 100,000 per day at the festival so availability may become scarce soon.

larry you are so right and I think that Southampton should be our base and leave Hotel choice to the individual, 2018 visit to Crewe we stayed in an Ibis Hotel it was clean and reasonably priced, I will check them out later thanks for the help.

Larry that would be a sight.

Ross you are more than welcome, no room service, just muck in, and the cost hardly anything.

That would be grrrreat Richard and maybe Benoit might bring his Silver Shadow too, no pressure Benoit. I'm due to deliver a blushing bride to church in the Silver Shadow in your neck of the woods on 27th April. That should be a nice wee practice run (for the Silver Shadow, not the bride).

Great news Richard, looking forward to meeting Ross too. I think that's 8 people attending so far? The more the merrier. How many will the cottage cater for?

Larry I have two cottages with a total number of nine, beds, in the cottage in Selsey its the one at the sea side there is room for five, and the cottage in Fittleworth has four, Everyone will have a bed to themselves, and there are two bathrooms in each, the maximum in both cottages is fourteen. so nine is just right, So far confirmed friends are Larry, john, Benoit, Ross, Barry, Stephen and Richard, and the cottages are booked from 5th July till the 8th July so there is room for Two more, Obviously if there are couples there is room for more.

If it's OK with everyone and there is still enough room, I'd like to bring along a friend of mine.
He doesn't own a Rolls or Bentley, but he's a real car enthousiast and nice bloke.

It has just occurred to me that I could offer a rather special visit to the workshop of a friend of mine. Look up "Cummins Railton" on the net. Terry clark, the builder of this beautiful monster, is a friend of mine and would enjoy entertaining a bunch of RR/B nerds. His workshop usually has streams of exotic or unusual machinery passing through - he is the go-to guy when all other folk have said "No" after a sharp intake of breath. Ferraris, Lambos, RR/B, vintage or veteran, an occasional GT40 or hyped-up rally car, etc........ And his own semi-replica of the Napier-Railton which holds (for ever) the Brooklands lap record. (It's got a 6 litre super-charged AND turbo-charged Cummins diesel engine, and it goes.)

Think about it - what about a visit to Weston-Super-Mare on one day before or after Goodwood. I can put up a few folk at home and Cheddar has a few B&Bs/hotels.

Excellent suggestion Alan, I would certainly be very interested, thank you for the offer. Monday 8th July would definitely suit me if that's agreeable to others as I expect to be heading from Goodwood to the ferry at Fishguard on that day and Weston-Super-Mere would be only a slight detour on my route. I'll wait and see what plans others have.

I can put off definite arrangements with Terry till the last moment - he won't want to organise it weeks in advance.

Richard,

I haven't seen any talk of a commemorative key chain. If you want I can custom cut some in leather.

I did a bunch of laser cut ones recently. The completed ones had brass rivets and titanium rings.

Here's some pics.

Nice work Ross. The leather ones are the best as they don't add weight to tug at the ignition switch barrel. I don't know whether or not Richard has already commissioned some but no doubt he will be in touch but I'd personally love one of those classic period leather ones.

Thanks you for the warning, Richard.
I ordered our tickets today.
We will only be able to attend the Festival of Speed on Saturday, as we have to go back to Belgium on Sunday due to work

So we will arrive on Friday and leave somewhere Sunday.
