Final preparation before Goodwood Revival

With less than a week to go before the Goodwood Revival meeting we took advantage of the excellent weather to visit the seaside at Hayling Island. We have hardly used the Renault 4CV this year with the poor British summer so it needed a good run to insure its reliability. On the cars 54th birthday we took a great sunny run to the beach, chips and ice cream followed but then the mist came in, it must have dropped 10 degrees C in 30 mins and we headed home. It seems we weren’t alone as it took 2 hours to get back on the mainland! Still, it shows the car won’t overheat in traffic which is ideal for next weekends taxi duties at the Revival.
We have three cars in the period taxi fleet and the Renault will be joined by Victors Subaru 360 and Mario the Multipla to transport VIPs, staff and team members around the event. Hopefully we will be based in our usual position between the main pedestrian and vehicle entrances near the club shop. Come and say hello if you are going to be there. I intend to be blogging all over the weekend so keep an eye out for my posts.
