IET Formula Goblin

Hannah, Friday 7th October, 2011

The last few months have flown by and has brought the last few events on the IET Formula Goblin calendar; Croft, Essex and not to mention the Grand Gathering of Goblin Finale. All events have been tremendously successful, and all school have been a delight to work alongside. The Gathering of Goblins at Goodwood held up to expectations with a record entry of over 60 cars. The rain showers which blessed us on the day did little to put of both competitors and spectators, and the event proved to be a fitting end to a fantastic Goblin season.
