The summer heatwave held out for the Goodwood Breakfast Club last Sunday. I popped down with our Lotus Elan to enjoy the sun and see some classics. There is always an interesting selection and it’s always great to get a cup of coffee and have a wander around the Goodwood circuit.
Yesterday we had two more on the rollers. A beautiful road going Lotus Elan S4 came in running very poorly. It turns out that another firm rebuilt the fixed jet Stromberg carburettors with fixed needles so there was no mixture adjustment. The correct parts are on there way. Peter Blanchett was next in with his 1600cc Austin A50. It came in running very rich but we managed to rectify that and find some horse power.
