Post Goodwood Classic Alfa Romeo trackday
I'm not able to drive again yet (another three weeks to go)but a friend is taking me down to Goodwood tomorrow , to at least watch and browse over lots of Alfa Classic track cars. He'll have to stop halfway there and on the way home , for me to walk around for ten minutes(physio advice at this stage). I'm lucky to get someone to cart my foldup chair around for me , so I can chat in between a little hobbling on crutches. Forcast is for a nice dry day !!!
The plan was to run my classic Alfa there but it's not ready plus can't drive it anyway.

Great day out at Goodwood yesterday but didn't take photos , as a pair of crutches and carrying phone or camera don't go together easily. Really nice to see and hear those 40 yr old twincams howling around the track , some totally standard , others with obviously modified engines and others sporting wide arches , wide wheels plus sticky tyres. The predominate body colour was red but blue , orange , fawn and white were scattered around. These Alfa GTV 105 Nord engined cars are valued between 15 and 100 thousand , depending on age , condition and spec. ie. modified arched big bhp cars built by Autodelta in the 60,s (GTAm's)are at the top end with replica's built on a GTV of the period builtt by individuals at the bottom or mid range.
Sadly my modified Stylus would never sell for anywhere near it's full original build plus modifications cost --- my recent aquisition of a GTAm replica is the opposite in value terms. It'll hold it's value and long term make a profit ----- lesson learned :)
Just watching yesterday left me very envious , so looking forward to being allowed to drive again then running in the rebuilt Alfa Nord engine in my replica. I was offered passenger rides but as only three weeks post ' op ' decided it too risky being thrown around through the Goodwood corners !
