Those fantastic chaps over at Goodwood have just announced the calendar for this years Breakfast Club. If you’ve not heard of the Breakfast Club (not the film with Molly Ringwald), on the first Sunday of the month the Goodwood Motor Circuit hosts a free event where you can turn up, grab a tasty bacon sandwich and have a good look around some interesting cars, bikes and planes. It’s a bit of a show-and-tell session so if you happen to drive something that matches the days theme your car can be one of the exhibits.
This years calendar is shaping up like this:
|1 March||‘Mini Mayhem – for all Small Sporting Runabouts’
Celebrating everything from the original Mini to the archetypal hot hatch and modern Supermini, plus RV sporting light aircraft.
|5 April||‘Fabulous Family Favourites – from Fords to Flaminias’
Any practical collector’s car with room for all the family, plus four-seater and fixed gear aircraft.
|3 May||‘Everything But The Car – from Bikes and Buses to Tractors and Trucks’
All forms of motorised transport except conventional passenger cars. Motorcycles, scooters, three-wheelers, campers, light and heavy commercial vehicles, off-road workhorses, other utility vehicles and even aircraft are all welcome – nothing is too bizarre!
|7 June||‘Supercar Sunday – the Ultimate Performance Machines’
Mouth-watering (and mostly mid-engined!) ultimate performance cars and exotic superbikes, plus aerobatic aircraft.
|28 June||‘Performance Car Legends – post-1970 Driver’s Cars’ Sports and GT cars from the 1970s to the present day, from Jensen Interceptor to Ariel Atom, as well as Lotus, Caterham, TVR, Porsche and many more, plus retractable aircraft.|
|5 July||Not held due to Goodwood Festival of Speed|
|2 August||‘Soft Top Sunday – a Taste of the British Summer’
Roofless cars of all ages, shapes and sizes, plus all open cockpit aircraft.
|30 August||‘Thoroughbred Sunday – the Quintessential Classic Car and Motorcycle’
Any pre-1966 road vehicle or aircraft in the spirit of Goodwood circuit’s golden days.
|6 September||Not held due to Goodwood Revival preparations|
|4 October||‘Maserati Magnifica– a Tribute to the Trident and other Italian Icons’
For all Maseratis and any other Italian collector’s vehicles, from a Lambretta to a Lamborghini, plus Continental aircraft.
|1 November||‘Souped-up Sunday – Modified and Custom Vehicles of all Ages’
Everything from hot rods and custom cars to contemporary urban cruisers, plus home-built aircraft.
|6 December||‘Breakfast Club Christmas Cracker’
Any cherished car or aircraft, preferably with a heater and plenty of boot space for your Christmas shopping. Yule be glad you came!
I live up the road from Goodwood so I’ve been to quite a few Breakfast Clubs over the past couple of years, they’re a pretty good way to spend a Sunday morning – especially if you follow it up with lunch at the Fox Goes Free!
