    thanks

    Again the Revival was a wonderful weekend. From the sight of nine Spitfires in formation over head to the amazing lengths people took to look the part, the Rivival again marked it out as a unique event in the classic car world.

    You could have spent a whole day just looking around the car park and still have had a great day. Here are a copy of shoots to give you a flavour or cars in the car park:

    Pictures from the Friday and the Sunday, not edited them properly yet and need to finish captions.

    The Nick Mason GTO came second in the TT, after a stunning start by Martin Brundle going from 7th on the grid to 2nd. Brundle and Hales were sublime behind the wheel using the GTO's balance really well and one of the few cars not wheel spinning out of the chicane.

    No one was ever really going to catch the Shelby Daytona coupe with Kenny Brack and Tom Kristensen driving it, although that looked a real handful when the heavens opened, fishtailing all the way down the start finish line.

    Derek Hill (son of Phil Hill) starred in the Maserati Tipo 151 powering through the field as circuit dried but it couldn't match the GTO once it rained again, still 3rd was a great result for the car's Goodwood debut.

    The Breadvan ran well too up to 4th or or 5th (not quite sure) at the finish, it's superior balance was too much for the more powerful Cobras in the wet.

    Thanks my camera is not ideal for shooting the cars while on track (or the planes in the sky), so had to quite heavily crop to get a decent(ish) photo.

    as usual, some amazing cars over there. thank you for the pictures, they are amazing :)

    thank you as well, Streetrod for those lovely pics. That 250GT SWB looks fantastic in that colour.

    i really hope that there was a camera onboard Mason's GTO recording the race, like last year. can't wait to see all the action from Brundle/Hales prespective. from your description of the race and from this photo, it appears like it was one hell of a race

    Saw this in the classic lot at Goodood on Saturday, 17 September.

    The body was GRP and I appreciate it is easy to stick Ferrari emblems on a car, but the rest of this was very "period" and looked authentic (i.e. proper wire wheels etc.)

    I could not see inside the cockpit (tonneau cover) not get a glimpes of the engine through the louvered bonnet/hood, so I have no idea of what the mechanicals might have been.

    so wait, is that a replica?

    Edit: probably is, as that rear doesn't look very Ferrari like

    No aspect of the body looked very Ferrari-like, but it just made me wonder. Anyone else?
