Welcome to  GALPOT Weekly #49 a review of the last seven blogs at "Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres".

Last weeks blogs all came from one of the worlds biggest fancy dress party's known as the  Goodwood Revival.  Monday started with an overview of the event which included the mascot of this Daimler LQ20.

MG K3, Goodwood Revival

On Tuesday I looked at some of the MG's both on the track and in the car park which appeared at Goodwood. Above is Howard Maguire in his K3 which appears to have once belonged to Otto Stone in Australia.

Tatra T603, Goodwood Revival

Wednesdays Continental Curiosities blog again featured stars from the track and car park not least the Tatra T603 seen at St Mary's corner above.

Thursdays post featured some of the cars from the Dan Gurney Presidential Campaign including Dan's 1970 Eagle Offenhauser, his last ride in the Indy 500.

Ferrari 250 GTO, Goodwood Revival

Ferrari Friday's billion dollar blog featured a hand full of the many storied Ferrari's at Goodwood, above Jean Alesi is seen driving Nick Mason's Ferrari 250 GTO, one of eleven GTO's at Goodwood last weekend.

Lotus BRM 24, Goodwood Revival

Among the Lotus cars at Goodwood, which I looked at yesterday, was this BRM powered Lotus 24 seen driven by Nigel Williams which carries the bodywork from a Lola Mk4 as it did when Peter Revson drove it in 1964.

Auto Union C-Type, Goodwood Revival

Today's post features some of the Silver Arrows dating from 1934 to 1939 from both Mercedes Benz and Auto Union which were demonstrated at Goodwood. Above is a 1936 Auto Union C-type, driven by 5 times Le Mans winner Frank Biela similar to those driven by Bernd Rosemeyer to three race victories and the European Grand Prix Championship.
