Would you like to drive your Bay around the Goodwood Motor Track? 18th Feb

  1. Hi folks - it seems ages since I posted on here. Hope this msg finds you all well and looking forward to the coming season.

    I'll get straight to the point. I've organised for our lot over on brazilianvwbay.com to have the opportunity to do laps of the world famous Goodwood circuit on Saturday 18th Feb. We did this last year and it was a blast. We had 28 Kombis on the track then and it created a spectacle, particularly as it was a really dull day weatherwise.

    We have 40 slots on the track, but due to a variety of reasons, a number of our lot have had to cancel and we're now down to 20 Kombis. This year we're dedicating the whole session to a wonderful little boy who I met last year, who sadly has Treacher Collins Syndrome. Every slot booked on the track will donate at least £10 to Loui's fundraising. He has already had a host of invasive procedures to improve his health and faces many more over the coming years. Hopefully he and his parents will be in attendance on the day. We have the track for 1 hour around lunchtime - an MG club have booked the whole day at Goodwood, we are being allowed on whilst they lunch. The cost is £34 per campervan.

    Rather than not fill the slots, I thought it would be terrific to have representatives from your gang join us. We'd love to have you come and join us. Just remember one thing, this isn't a race and your insurance probably won't cover you for your time on the track. But it is a brilliant way to get your Bay exercising for the season ahead!!

    I fully understand if you don't want to register over on our site just for the purpose of joining in, so I'm happy to draw up a list of your attendees here on The Late Bay. I'll pm you the payment details should you choose to join us, which I hope many of you will.

    Many thanks for reading this and hope to see some of you on Feb 18th.

    I'll shortly be putting up the menu for our lunch at The White Horse. We pre-order the mains so that everyone gets their food at the same time. Puddings can be ordered on the day.
  3. Any of you guys joining us?

    It's a great opportunity...

    I don't think any of us are confident of managing a complete lap ;)
