Goodwood Motor Circuit’s final breakfast meet of the year was another roaring success! Classic Car Sunday is a laid-back mix of pre-war vintage vehicles, classics, retro 70s and 80s cars, as well as a few 90s icons. It’s a must for any dedicated classic car enthusiast. And the best bit? It’s free to attend!
As the story goes this summer, we enjoyed the sun while it lasted… Come 10.30am, we joined the mass exodus heading home for shelter. Thankfully though, we arrived at the venue at 6.30am and were lucky to get a good four hours looking around the cars and soaking up the nostalgic atmosphere.
The random parking is what makes this event. Get there early enough and you’ll bag a spot at the start line on the track, or in one of the wooden sheds in the paddocks. But whether you find yourself parked, in the paddocks, along the track, or on the tree-line roadways, every car is made to feel part of the show. Austin’s rub shoulders with the Ferrari’s and Wolseley’s are bumper to bumper with Mustang’s. All this makes for a very photogenic display!
As you wander around the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit setting, your eyes are drawn to familiar classics, Concours cars, and race cars of all marques and models. Then there are the rarer spots such as the 1962 Volga produced by Russian manufacturer ‘GAZ’, the unusual Lotus Europa, and two Austin A90 Atlantics proudly displayed side by side.
The crowds were also treated to a display courtesy of the iconic Spitfire. As it fired up its engines, you could feel the force of the thrust and experience the euphonous sound of the Merlin engines.
We hope you enjoy the photos. Do keep an eye out for Goodwood’s 2024 breakfast meet events, they are well worth a visit!
