As it enters its eighth season, the Goodwood Breakfast Club for 2013 promises another tantalising mix of great vehicles and a hearty Goodwood organic breakfast. Often copied, but never bettered, Goodwood’s first-Sunday of-the-month events remain the original and authentic Breakfast Club, with free admission to all visitors.
The Goodwood Breakfast Club is firmly established as a ‘must attend’ event for thousands of car and motorcycle connoisseurs who appreciate an enjoyable Sunday morning drive through the quiet West Sussex country roads down to Goodwood, where they are able to meet like-minded enthusiasts, admire some fabulous machinery, and eat a tasty Goodwood organic breakfast, before heading back home in time for the Sunday roast, to do a bit of gardening and DIY, or simply put their feet up and watch the Grand Prix!
For the 2013 Breakfast Club season, Goodwood will offer a range of popular themes that cater for all enthusiasts and vehicle types. As in previous years, the Breakfast Club meetings will be held on the first Sunday of the month at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit, starting a March, with the exception of July and September, when the hugely successful Festival of Speed (11-14 July) and Goodwood Revival (13-15 September) motor sport events will be held. The breakfast event starts at 8am and finishes at midday.
The 2013 Breakfast Club meetings promise an eclectic mix of vehicles and a tempting breakfast menu to whet the appetite of any motoring enthusiast. Each meeting is themed to appeal to a strong petrolhead audience who own an interesting and diverse selection of motor vehicles.
The dedicated and detailed Goodwood Breakfast Club website has regular updates on each monthly theme, and visitors are encouraged to pre-register online to help ensure a prime parking position with a theme-relevant vehicle.

I’m personally looking forward to trying to get down there for 2-3 of these wonderful events. Unfortunately the May event clashes with Donington Historic Festival, so Donington will win that decision.
I’ll be looking to attend Super Car Sunday and Italian Sunday and have already registered (super keen am I) and taking the car (you’ll hear me before you see me). It’s always to nice to get a good run out early in the morning and meet up with other car fans. See you there.
