Driving down to Goodwood on Sunday morning, following a Lamborghini and keeping a watch on the Ferrari behind, I was reminded of a comment by Peter Stevens, “there are a lot of super cars, but not many super drivers!”.
Feeling a little bit of a fraud in the Zenos E10R, I parked up in the paddock whilst the line up of exotic machines on the start finish straight extended beyond the chicane.
It was great to walk round and discuss the various cars with friends and colleagues, and listen in on the comments of the crowd about the differing designs and what is the definition of a supercar! As far as our discussions were concerned they seemed to concentrate on details that we are currently in negotiation with engineers about, under/over flush conditions, door release positions and legal light heights!
This event has changed over the years and is now huge with very organised parking, a simulator ride, numerous breakfast bars to satisfy the bacon butty brigade and various stalls selling their products.
One of the more interesting exhibitors being Greenpower Education Trust who are a UK based charity which gets young people enthusiastic about science and engineering by challenging them to design, build and race an electric car. Have a look at their website here.
So with a clear road up through Petworth on the way back allowing me to enjoy the great handling of the Zenos, I look forward to catching up with more of you at the next ‘designer’s breakfast club’!
