A few showers failed to spoil an otherwise pleasant day at Goodwood Motor Circuit for the annual HRDC Trackday. We had a successful day running Dave Griffith’s Standard Vanguard, Mike Haigh’s Ford Falcon and Guy Harman’s Abarth Fiat 1500 and Sebring Sunbeam Alpine Harrington. Both the Abarth and the Harrington will be racing in the 72nd Members Meeting later this month. The Fiat was running its new race engine and performed impeccably with an extra 40bhp. Many other friends were there including Ed Glaister with a very rapid Ford 100E and current BTCC champion Andy Jordan with his father Mike and there recently constructed Austin A40.
For next years HRDC Touring Greats season and hopefully an invite to the St. Mary’s Trophy at the Goodwood Revival we have acquired an amazing little Nash Metropolitan. The shell is in remarkable condition with virtually no rust. It has been fitted for a roll cage and is currently waiting to be seam welded, prepped, primed and painted. Can’t wait to see this.
