This car has popped up a couple of times recently. Firstly, I saw the car (and it's current owner, Neil) at the Southdowns Rally at Goodwood a month or so ago. This is the car that was ex-Kevin Cooper (kevincooper) and then ex-Mike (Coastline of this forum), and has been owned for a couple of years by Neil. Here it is at the Rally:

Also, the first Goodwood Breakfast Club of 2019 took place on the first Sunday of March. Unfortunately I wasn't able to be there, as the theme was "Estate Cars" just the thing for a GTE. As things turned out, the weather that day was absolutely dire, so the event was mostly dominated by modern Audis, BMWs and Mercs. However Neil was there with his GTE, and I see it has now had the honour of being written-up on the Goodwood Road & Racing website here. It's a pretty favourable write-up, well done Neil! :D

Agreed, good car, good write up, can't do any harm getting this on Goodwood's site.

I spotted the Goodwood email this morning and copied to all at the Noggin (they meet in Emsworth just up the road from Goodwood).
YCU was a great GTE and I followed this with a GTC. I passed the GTC on as I need to drive automatics now. Nice autos are difficult to find though.
There is one local to me but wonder if anyone has viewed it.

Thanks Roger, for putting picture on site and the link to the article.

It was great to be asked for an interview with Goodwood media, but wasn't expecting such a good write up, just a picture or two. At least it got more space on their site than the two a penny modern estates. :D
