I fancy going to this show but I've got a funny feeling that the show will be full of posh snobs.

It is very posh now a bit too corporation and flash. Little wine and champagne bars everywhere. I think carfest is getting better now and will slowly become the better show if you don’t want to walk round in a suit with a vip pass lol

Been yesterday and today (Friday) and looking forward to more of the same tomorrow and Sunday.

The original Bullitt Mustang just has an aura around it. Utterly superb.

Been invited to do something rather special over the weekend - will report back if it happens.

Proper touring car this. The 90s touring cars were just the best imo.

did the whole lot camping Wednesday to Monday, can honestly say the best experience of a car show I've ever had and I've been to many!

no sense at all of a class divide, sure you could tell there were some very well off folk there but so what, everyone was there for the same reason when you were track side or in the grandstands.

bloody expensive weekend but i'll definitely go again in the future.

After doing a Ford employee what ended up being a huge favour for him at Goodwood FOS, and not getting around to the sit and startup of the GT he said I could do because it was so busy, I received this in the post yesterday.

To say I'm gobsmacked is an understatement.
