    That sounds a bit like it might be the Kinnerton Confectionary track day.........am I right? I've been to a few of those, but never managed to get a ride (probably don't buy enough chocolate!)

    That's right, it is! My wife works for (possibly) their largest client so I might stand a chance of a ride!

    Are you going this year?

    Hi Steve

    I don't actually know when it is this year, I used to go to Goodwood sprints and track days a lot (I was there when Chris Rea rolled out his replica Sharknose 1961 156/F1 and 250TRI/61 for the first time on a Kinnerton day in about 1994) but haven't managed to get there for a couple of years due to pressure of work. Still, I've got a lot of photos and video footage of Moss, Brooks, Piper, etc. to remind me, if I had time to watch it.

    Hello again Steve

    Just found out that the Kinnerton day at Goodwood is Friday 30th April, and I just might be able to get there. Do you have any info on what cars & drivers are expected to be there?

    Hi Paul,

    Sorry I don't. I just have an invite and will be going with the wife in my TR (unless the weather is terrible).

    If you are going, you might like to pm me details of which company you work for so I can look out for you on the day?

    Steve

    Seb, 5805GT is a Nembo clone bodied by in the UK by Hayward and Scott. Supposedly Giorgio Neri had some involvement with creating the body panels for the car.
