First Goodwood Breakfast Club of the Year Was Less Taxing

The first of this year’s total of seven Goodwood Breakfast Club meetings saw a wide selection of (mostly pre-1973) tax-exempt vehicles gathered at the legendary Goodwood Motor Circuit for the themed ‘Tax-free Sunday’ meeting. Many classic car and motorcycle fans attended thanks to the fine crisp weather of the spring day.

The event was also attended by a number of modern tax-exempt low emission cars as well, including an electric Tesla Sport Roadster and Toyota iQ. All owners of the tax-exempt vehicles took a nice drive on the picturesque West Sussex roads, before displaying their machines at the celebrated Goodwood circuit.

Besides the usual British-built MGs, Austin-Healeys, some classic Porsches made their appearance, as well as a rare Australian-built Vauxhall Wyvern ‘Ute’ pick-up, a Willys Whippet, Ferrari 250 Lusso, Subaru 360, Renault 8 Gordini, an American Armed Forces mobile crane and two Marauder Rovers, which travelled specifically for the Breakfast Club all the way from Wales.

New this year were Parade Laps of the Goodwood circuit, which will now be run at future nominated Breakfast Club meetings as well. This new opportunity is open to the visitors as well, not just those that apply to a particular month’s theme. Unfortunately, places are limited so you’ll have to book a place on the next round of Parade Laps by visit the Goodwood team in the Jackie Stewart Pavilion as early as possible on the day.

“Most Goodwood Breakfast Club meeting are held on the first Sunday of the month, with the next event on Mothering Sunday, 3 April, when the theme will be Soft Top Sunday: This will attract open top cars of all shapes and sizes, just in time for spring, so visitors will be encouraged to bring their mum’s along as well for a special topless Mothers Day morning treat!” states the official press release from Goodwood Motor Circuit.
