  • Goodwood FoS

    We have checked into our hotel in Guildford and will drive down to Goodwood in the morning.

    Hopefully, with Lotus as featured marque, there will be something of interest for us Seven owners.

    '62 Lotus Seven
    '84 Turbo Esprit (x2)
    '14 Evora
    '77 Esprit S1 (RIP) :(

    The Lotus 7 of the late Piers Courage may be among the entrants.

    I attended the Dutch GP @ Zandvoort when Piers Courage was killed in his De Tomaso Ford on June 21, 1970. F1 teams then stopped using magnesium as a construction material. The plume of smoke among the dunes still makes me sick.

    Rindt won the race, the first of five consecutive, and was also killed, later that year, @ Monza. Had the bad luck to be the only post-humous World Champion.

    Stewart did all of motor racing a tremendous service when he got sick of watching his closest friends keep dying in their cars.
