Eggs, bacon and cars
Goodwood club proves a resounding success
The Goodwood Breakfast Club held its sixth meeting in August, and Motor Sport gate-crashed in an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Each Sunday morning is themed, and the August focus was German sports cars. The events are free for all to come and view, but only cars linked to the theme gain access to the main circuit viewing area.
Full English breakfasts, using produce from the Goodwood organic farm, filled the need for food, and the cars on show helped fill our Sunday morning with car talk. More than 100 cars, old and new, met the theme in total — Porsche 356s and Speedsters and a Carrera GT, a BMW 635CSL and the latest M6, and three Mercedes 300SL Gullwings and today’s SL55 AMG. Plus some Audi Quattros and a dragster Beetle. For more details, visit www.goodwood.co.uk/breakfastclub
