Goodwood Breakfast Club themes and dates for 2012

If you are a Petrol head and you’ve not heard of the Goodwood Breakfast Club, I’d be surprised.  These car events may be your Petrol head Nirvana.

I went for the first time in 2011 and attended and presented at Supercar Sunday.  It was a really good morning and some wonderful cars there to drool over.  You can see everything from supercars to classic cars, hypercars and rare cars, it’s a cracking event.

Best of all this is an admission-free event, yes FREE, Breakfast Club meeting at the Goodwood Motor Circuit. 2012 sees these gatherings enter their sixth season.  2012 promises an eclectic mix of vehicles and a tasty breakfast menu to whet the appetite of any motoring enthusiast.

If you can make time to attend, then in our minds this is a ‘must attend’ event.  What’s not to like about an enjoyable Sunday morning drive through the quiet West Sussex country roads down to Goodwood, where you are able to meet like-minded enthusiasts, admire some fabulous machinery and eat a tasty breakfast, before heading back home in time for the Sunday roast, to do a spot of gardening and DIY, or simply put your feet up and watch the Formula 1!

Visitors are encouraged to pre-register their vehicles by e-mailing the dedicated Breakfast Club team.

So, I’ve pre-registered for the Super Car Sunday and Continental Classics.  Are you attending this year, if so what dates are you planning to go?  If you’re interested in a convoy and travelling down from the Berkshire direction then email me and we can arrange to meet up on the way.
