Goodwood’s Classic Car Membership weekend



By Mike Reid

Frog Capital LP investors and portfolio CEOs gathered this weekend at the unique Goodwood March classic car event. Over a hundred incredible classic cars from a 1909 Austin Hall-Scott and 1959 JBW-Maserati through to a 1995 Bugatti EBI and 1997 Mercedes CLK-GTR. Twelve races plus plenty of demonstrations. History, technology, passion, hard graft, plenty of glamour and, of course, some good networking.

The car we were backing was number 5, a magnificent 1959 Jaguar-Lister ‘Costin’, driven by our very own Kurt Engelhorn from Kusana. Of the circa 50 genuine Lister-Jaguars remaining in the world, 27 were racing in Race 6.

A fabulous day. Pictures below; Abe Smith from Dealflo and Felix Jahn from McMakler. Thank you to Florian Seidl for co-hosting.
