McLarens takeover the Goodwood 73rd Members Meeting

1 April, 2015

The Goodwood 73rd Members Meeting, held on March 21–22, was a spectacular occasion showcasing some of the best racing flashbacks seen for years, but what was our highlight?

McLaren decided to organize a never-seen-before experience for Goodwood fans by means of McLaren F1 GTR overload. McLaren arranged F1 GTRs from every year that they contested the BPR Global GT Series, alongside a few guest appearances such as the new McLaren P1 GTR.

What they also did was capture it all on video for your viewing pleasure. Feast your eyes on the ’95, ’96, and ’97 ‘Longtail’ GTRs all on the circuit at the same time.

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
