    Hate the wire fences - which why I love Goodwood so much and why I return to Goodwood but wouldn't do Monaco again.
    Thanks Ray. I see your thread now has over 1.2 million views! Thats pretty impressive.

    Thanks for the platform Steve!

    How appropriate that you kick off page 200.

    Maybe I should put in my will, that the hard drive with ALL my car photographs on it, is left to you, as I can't think of any recipient more worthy. Family aren't going to be interested.

    Yes, well spotted Ray. 200 pages! I think this is the highest performing thread on the forum.

    As I'm off to Nottingham again end of next week, a reminder that it wasn't just the west midlands manufacturing cars, but also George Brough in the east midlands.

    Nottingham is better known for Raleigh bicycles, (and a few cars!) John Player Cigarettes (and sponsorship of Team Lotus of course), Boots the chemists, not to mention several important inventions - and a centre for the Luddites, but the Brough Superior motorbikes made a lasting impression despite the relative small numbers compared to the likes of BSA, Norton, Royal Enfield, Triumph, Velocette etc. Even fewer cars.

    All these have Nottingham registration plates - TO, AL, AU

    Ironically, my last UK job was on Haydn Road...

    First and last pics taken at the small, but interesting, Nottingham Industrial Museum.

    Are you still able to escape NZ Ray? Congrats on the 200th page.

    All OK so far thanks Rhys. Not a very happy wife though... Three weeks trip was marginal, for her, but an extra 2 weeks of MIQ and now lockdown. Very, very tough for her.

    In addition to three days of Goodwood, and some time at Curborough, I also have a return visit to Caister planned, maybe a return to Brooklands (though I doubt there are any new exhibits) and possibly Ambergate in Derbyshire and maybe, the Silverstone experience. I won't be uploading any images of the trip at all until I'm back in NZ - with 14 days of MIQ to do the usual cropping and renumbering.

    I'm also looking forward to accepting an invitation to visit the 'Practical Classics' magazine's workshop and another personal invitation to call into the Bourne Museum for the Raymond Mays exhibition.

    If I have posted any of that before, no apologies, just a reminder!

    Getting organised for the trip away now, so unless I post a couple of pics from the UK, as teasers, I'll be taking a break from posting until I get back to NZ.

    Take care everyone and sorry for deserting you in level 4.

    Sunday. A brief visit to Curborough and to say hi to Rhys. Almost enough Renault Clio's and MG's for an event of their own. Very interesting to hear their times compared to my times of 30 years ago with the tatty Wolseley Hornet 1293cc.

    Tuesday. Ambergate, Derbyshire, British Car museum. Better than I expected - and a surprising number of visitors for a midweek.

    Sorry, no pics until I get back to NZ.

    It was great to meet up briefly Ray. Stay safe, no more nose jobs

    Nose fully repaired thanks Rhys - though the ankle still very sore as is the chest when I cough.

    For those not sure about this, within two minutes of arriving at Curborough sprint course, September 5th, just a few hours after arriving in the UK, I stepped aside to let some competing MG saloons pass, and rolled my ankle on the edge of the road, smacked my head and nose on the tarmac, requiring medical attention, and bruised my chest from protecting the camera!

    Currently at Heathrow, about to board the flight home, with a computer full of photos I haven't even looked at, let alone cropped or filed. That is not just Goodwood either.

    The Goodwood highlights?

    BRM V16s of course.
    A win for the BRM P25.
    1-2-3 win for ERA's, including Duncan Ricketts 3rd
    The Brookland's trophy race with the winning 1928 'Owlet' a real hoot (!), though it nearly got wiped out on the last lap by a spinning Vauxhall - pics to follow - eventually.

    Not sure how best to decide what sequence to upload so I have decided to upload a set from each day, otherwise by the time I get to Goodwood, it will be about March - 2023.

    September 5th - Curborough Sprint

    Whilst Ambergate isn't as well known as other British car museums, having not been open long, if you can detour through Derbyshire, it is well worthwhile. Whilst the majority are bread and butter cars, they are well presented and for an extra cost, there are even cars you can drive.
