Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013 Report & Pics

On Thursday 11th July 2013 we joined the DS3GB Owners Club and went to the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013 having been given entry tickets complements of Citroen UK.

The day started at 4am leaving home & we headed for the DS3GB Convoy Meet point @ 7am @
The Anglesey Arms in Halnaker near Chichester [PO18 0NQ]
We then all convoyed to Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013 where we all parked up together.
I’m sure I can say that a great day was had by all!!

On entry we visited the Moving Motor Show, giving everyone the opportunity to see the very latest models up close, & in many cases drive them on a dedicated vehicle evaluation route within the grounds of the Goodwood Estate, including the revered Goodwood Hillclimb.
Cars will undertake hundreds of runs on a special evaluation route within the extensive grounds of the Goodwood Estate including the world famous Festival of Speed hillclimb.
Then we all headed to the Citroen UK stand for where we received a fantastic welcome, & after a good look look around especially at the DS3 Cabrio Racing concept car we were taken upstairs to the VIP area & received a complementary coffee.
To my amazement & great delight we came across a 2CV on the 1st floor of the Citroen UK stand, which was signed by enthusiasts. The various clubs bought a new 2CV, dismantled it & distributed the panels around the world, for everybody to sign as a petition against the rumours of ending 2cv production. The front wings went around British 2cvgb meets.
Then after a chat & full use of the nice comfy sofas we all went our separate ways to explore the show.
There were a large Porsche presence this year the event was honouring the 50th anniversary of one of the world’s most versatile & popular sports cars, the Porsche 911, along with a Formula 1 Paddock & old WRC Cars on display.

Thanks Jon

Only one thing that I wasn’t happy about – Mikko Hirvonen was at the show on Friday & doing a run up the hill – Esther [Girlfriend] hopes his time isn’t as good as hers in the DS5 hehehe
