After Cars & Coffee Irvine’s departure many years ago, there’s been a hole left in weekend mornings ever since. It was the originator, so to speak, and given the cars it managed to bring out on even the gloomiest of Saturday mornings, nothing has compared in the years that have followed. That’s not to say, however, that no one has tried.
“Good things come to those who wait,” or so they say at least. It piggy-backs on the sentiment of “patience is a virtue,” and while both seem nonsensical when in the throes of restlessness, it does ring true on at least some occasions. Peter Aylward returns once again, this time with imagery from the 77th Goodwood Members’ Meeting, an event hosted exclusively for members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club and its fellowship.
With the Goodwood Festival of Speed less than a month away, we figure now’s better than ever to take a look back: One of our favorite motorsports photographers, Peter Aylward, has made good on his promise to treat us to the imagery of the Goodwood Festival of Speed. For those somehow unfamiliar, the Goodwood FoS celebrates historic race cars of all walks, from vintage to modern, as long as the machine offers automotive, cultural, or community significance.
I hadn’t planned on attending Spa Classic this year. In fact, I nearly missed the event entirely. Luckily, a friend texted me, ‘I’m going to Spa. You should come. There will be Group C.’. He said the magic words… Group C. I’ve always wanted to experience these mythical beasts in the flesh and this would be my chance.
We had some small hold ups on the way to the track but we made it just in time.
There are few better ways to start off the week. Mondays don’t have to be all bad. We’re excited to share Part II of Peter Aylward’s photo series covering the 2018 Silverstone Classic.
