This weekend sees Goodwood play host to the Festival of Speed. This is great for the area, bringing in lots of revenue and visitors. It does mean, however, that the main east-west route becomes a no-go area for several hours in the morning and in the evening. For the Gorse Fox and Silver Vixen the main impact is the ability to stroll out to the front of the house and watch the air display from the Red Arrows whilst chatting to the other neighbours. The chat continued long after the Red Arrows had gone and we almost jumped from our skins when two Tornados flew very low and very fast over the house in close formation.
The Urban-cub came over to see us, brief us on her first week at Gatwick, and show her new car. She is obviously loving the job and has lots of studying to do in order to get through her various certifications. It certainly sounds very interesting and we suspect that she will be in her element once she is let loose on the public! Her car looks very nice also - though she is still struggling with many of the features.
