It’s no coincidence that our updated blog has appeared after two, yes, TWO!!!, major Goodwood events within a month. But we can also share some photos from trips to Silverstone for the Classic and for the GTS Equipe races in July.
In the meantime, BIG NEWS: Autoclassics.uk is exhibiting at the London Photo Show:

Andrew and Charles are going to be “in residence” on Friday 12th November from 3-6pm and if you able to pop in, we’d love to see you.

Silverstone – Equipe GTS meeting
Andrew was supporting Nigel Winchester and his beautiful AC Cobra and Nigel swept away allcomers, winning on both days.
Also present was Chris Mann with his lovely 1953 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante which he drives to and from each race event. Click here to see the photos (code – Equipe21 on home page)
CKL Developments sent Charles to the Classic where he was alternately drenched and then baked but managed to come back with some rainy day shots and was most impressed with the reflections from the shiny floor at the International Paddock.

Goodwood Classic Car Breakfast
The nice people at Goodwood managed to add an additional member event in August – there was a huge range of members’ cars and we found ourselves talking more than photographing as we caught up on 18 months of stories. Our friend Mark was displaying his immaculate BMW 2002 Targa and coincidentally, his driving holiday ideas were spot on – try Celtic Routes – Self Drive, Guided Tours if you want an amazing tour of the UK’s remoter landscapes.

It was so good to get back to Goodwood after the taster of the Festival of Speed. We had the excitement of looking for our very own brass plaques around the grounds and heard about trees planted in our names in the middle of a forest not far away (nobody we know went in search of the trees – we’re not that brave). Both these gifts from Goodwood were for keeping our membership going through the pandemic and added a bit of extra fun and “ownership” to the Goodwood experience.
Nigel Winchester was racing his AC Cobra on the Friday and Andrew managed to get some wonderful shots of the car racing against the sunset.
We were blessed with great weather, an amazing turnout of star cars and a sprinkling of celebrities. Have a look at a small selection of the shots here (code – revival21 on home page)
Goodwood Members Meeting 78
Coming so soon after Revival, some of the surprise and delight was initially missing from the event but, after rain made for interesting photos on Saturday morning, the weekend developed into one of the best garden parties you can imagine.
MM is much more relaxed than Revival and there is so much to do. Andrew struggled with the head cold that is going around and so missed some of the weekend – nonetheless, both Charles and Andrew managed to get some special images.

That’s all for this update – let us know what you think. Are there enough photos? Do we give too little detail? Have you any ideas of car-based photo projects we should do next?
