    There were several parades. The "Road to Wembley - 1966", a tribute to Sir Jack Brabham, "Return to Power (F1)" and a parade of "Goodwood Greats". Some of the parade cars were racing anyway, but some were not. A bit of a mixed bag, but an integral part of the Revival.

    The 'Return to Power' in 1966 is what killed off Goodwood - and many would say, 'thank goodness for that'. When Lord March re-opened it for the first Revival, I am sure he had no idea of just what an iconic event it would turn into.

    Had the circuit remained, but surrounded by those terrible wire fences that infest most current tracks, this race meeting would never ever be the drawcard it is. Being able to walk right around the track, lean on a waist high fence, use a modest camera to get the sort of shots you see here, surely tells it all?

    Having now been to the Monaco Historics, where you are penned into whatever cage your ticket allows, but no paddock access and none of the carnival or trade support, not to mention car parking, even though the cars on track may be similar, no contest from a spectator viewpoint. Goodwood wins hands down. I'd never bother go back to Monaco, but I could do every Goodwood race meeting and always enjoy it. Not perfect maybe, but I'd rate it overall at 95%.

    The 1966 F1 group wasn't very large, (no Ferrari) but so good to hear race engines that sounded like race engines and not X-Box screamers.

    One of the reasons for only giving Goodwood a 95% rating relates to the programming or scheduling. As mentioned before, there is a lot of wasted track time, yet the 'Sussex Trophy' cars never got out on track until the end of the day, Friday and again Sunday. OK, my choice to leave just before racing finished not to mention being very tired, but with 50,000 people heading for the exits at the same time, being fed into the narrow country lanes or even the A27, leaving early was a no brainer that worked very well for me.

    I'm bitterly disappointed that I missed these cars on track and if anyone with Goodwood connections reads this (I doubt they will), then a plea to have a look at the schedule to maybe shuffle the groups around a wee bit. Two Austin A35 races and two pedal car races in the middle of the day, not to mention the 3 parades repeated each day, but Sussex Trophy cars not before 5.25pm (race, 6pm practice), was a shame.

    Apologies for not covering many cars, but had I done my homework, I would have taken more paddock shots! No apologies for concentrating on the Listers and the Tojeiro. Based on the entry list. I should have taken the Devin Chev - but I didn't see it, Lotus 15's, a Ferrari 246s Dino (missed that one too...), Sadler Chev and Maserati Birdcage - which I thought I had taken.

    Ray,
    Your photos are amazing and you take the time to share them all. Thanks so much.
    Is that Chris McAllister driving the Lotus 49 # 5 with the Jim Clark type helmet ?

    Thanks Ken, but there is no mention in the programme of who is driving which car or as they are display cars only, not even what the car numbers are. As with the Brabham parade, you'd need to be far more knowledgeable than I am to accurately identify each car. You can tell the difference between an H16 BRM and the V12 BRM easily enough...

    Correct, but the cars in the parade weren't all 1966! They ranged from 1966 - 1968. The parade was titled 'Return to Power' to recognise the 3 litre formula. Sorry, maybe I should have explained that better. There were 14 cars listed but not all appeared - or ran. The earlier McLaren Ford wasn't seen on track.

    Another favourite group, so often, more than 1 pic of most cars. The bright sunshine really helped. I totally missed the practice session as it was when I was hiking from Madgwick back to the car for the fresh camera battery. This is from the 'Richmond Trophy' grid, for 2.5 litre GP cars that raced 1954 - 1960.

    Taken quite late in the race, after an 'incident' between the Scarab and the Tec Mec. Tec Mec = Tecnica Meccanico Maserati, which was one of those unique exhibits in the early days of the Donington Collection, which always made it such a joy to visit.

    Whilst 'front three quarter' pics may be a bit of a bore photographically, or artistically, I make no excuse, as I really enjoy building up my library of car photographs covering as many makes and models as possible. However, I do enjoy some of the action photographs and the driver stance, or cars slightly out of shape on the track. Note the number of selected pics so far, of drivers maybe struggling with gear selection or watching the mirrors or with hands off the wheel.

    I'm amazed that this Lancia D50 isn't marked as a replica or recreation, as all the originals were destroyed. Probably only of interest to the pedants, but I'm finding it increasingly difficult to accurately label or categorise some cars. Maybe the answer is to apply a disclaimer to all published pics that the car may or may not be an original?

    Loving these photos and details Ray. Keep 'em coming!

    Out of interest, which performed better: The Lister Jaguars or Lister Chevrolets?

    I have no idea Steve, as I never saw them on track! I'm sure that if you Google 'Sussex Trophy 2016' you'll get some response!

    There's probably a link on the Goodwood site for a video of the race.

    Here we are 5 weeks on, and I'm still wading through cataloguing and filing...

    An Italian flavour for Spgeti. You can almost smell the garlic - or Castrol R.
