Autosolo is one of the easiest to join, lowest cost, most risk-free types of motorsport. But that’s not to say that it isn’t interesting, or exciting, as a day at Goodwood for the GRRC March 2023 Autosolo event showed. Here are some quick pics of the action on the day.

As always, Minis, Caterhams and other, lightweight stuff goes well. But there were some cool oddities in the paddock too, like this gloriously cacky Land Rover from the Goodwood estate.

When did you last see a machine this happy? I can forgive the false patina paintwork, it’s a Lenham (!) and looked great.

And no trackday would be complete without a Lotus, right? Great also to see two Alpines and a 964 Targa on track.

Thanks to Fast Upp and others for the friendly chat. Next time you’ll see us on track.
