I have been snowed upon at Goodwood before, but only once during a race meeting – as I recall – and I think that was during the morning of Easter Monday, 1965 before the snow flurries turned to wind-blown rain, then drizzle, then the skies cleared. The sun broke through, the track dried and that afternoon saw Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart set the perpetual front-line Formula 1 lap record in brilliant light, but still shivery temperatures. It was, one might say, a good day all around.
