Dates and themes have been announced for Goodwood's popular Breakfast Club meets in 2012. Now in their sixth year and taking place from 8am to midday on the first Sunday of each month, the events will still be free to attend say organisers.
Special themes for 2012 include an all-British vehicle event to celebrate HRH The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, to be held on the Sunday of the long Bank Holiday weekend in early June.
The 50th anniversaries of many iconic cars - from the Triumph Spitfire and MGB, through to the AC Cobra and Ferrari 250 GTO - will be marked with a pre-Revival Thoroughbred Sunday meeting on 5 August.
