Doug Nye – Bending The Rules Under The Cover Of Darkness

For me one of the most evocative joys Goodwood during a Revival or Members’ Meeting is the night-time scene in the paddocks.  It takes me way back to dear old ‘Noddy’ Coombs telling me about a scrutineering problem that he recalled when one of his Jaguar saloon cars had been spot-checked by the scrutineers, and they had confirmed that the final-drive ratio in its back axle was the one required by the regulations. They had then wired the ‘banjo’ casing containing the assembly, and attached a lead seal to the knot to prevent any further tampering.
