Up the next day, brekkie show live from Chewton Glen and then off to a race track to meet Top Gear's The Stig where he will pilot you round a flying lap in one of the worlds most exciting supercars.
Shaking, quaking and hopefully still in one piece, we climb back into our 12 cylinder Italian beauties to go at The Cottage Inn near Ascot, where we will be hosted by the great Bobby King and Gentle Saint John for a second driver's dinner and overnight.
Saturday morning - it's one more leg over to join the Drive and Diners for the Dine and Disco big day out
And then on Sunday back to Goodwood, where the cars will have been magically transported for you to climb aboard for the famous hill climb in front of tens of thousands of people.
It's last year and some...
There will also be thirty tables of two up for grabs for the drive time dine and disco itself -
Golf in the morning, Johnny's quiz in the afternoon, a champagne reception down at my place, The Mulberry, in West Sussex as a prelude to another fabulous five course food extravaganza prepared by Giorgio Locatelli, followed by live music in the Disco tee pee from The Feeling and then tunes from myself, Johnny and big Jim on the wheels of steel through till home time... Come Sunday everyone is invited to the last day of The Festival of Speed courtesy of Lord March and the whole Goodwood team.
The cars will be auctioned off traditionally with bids increasing as the auction continues whereas the bidding for the tables will be one bid only per bidder, exactly like last year.
Right let's get this show on the road! It's gonna be a busy night
