Goodwood, anyone else going?

Morning all,

Tomorrow will be my first time visiting the Festival and wondered if anyone else is heading in?

Those who have been before are there any tips or recommendations I should know about or just take the day as it comes?

Yeah - heading the tomorrow. First time in about 8 years, we usually just do the Revival. Looking forward to it. The weather is looking good too. .

Yes arrive ultra early and bag a test drive up the hill if you have your licence, also usualy passanger rides up hill with Audi etc but ask at indoor stands at start line when to be there to get in first.
Ask at car stands when they are going to have people on stand ie Murray Walker and the likes good time with autograph book and ready supply of sharpies.
also some car stands do free drives at race circuit they did drifting in the GT86 on wet track was great, if kids with you? sometimes free sweet bar on some manufacture stands, and loads of signed freebies just don't be afraid to ask.
BMW/Mini Jag and other brands used to have lounges to show key and get free water and fizzy drinks, I missed out with AMG for free corporate use of the start line tent with veranda two years ago was gutted I could not get down
I once showed a lot of interest in a Range Rover and next I knew me and wife was invited to offroad day free of charge was fantastic.
Sometime they have free offroad rides in jeeps, also were doing F type burn out passenger rides the son loved that.
I have been seven times for the full weekend its absolutely fantastic.
I forgot to add I might be at an event the following weekend at goodwood race circuit hopefully
