LETTER: Anger and sadness over event’s corporate name change

I HAVE been a local resident for 35 years and became very proud of all our facilities – most of all the Festival of Speed and Glorious Goodwood and the Revival.

So last week, when I saw a big notice advertising the “Glorious Quatar Goodwood” well it filled me with a mixture of anger and sadness.

I fully accept the financial gains of foreign sponsorship – but – could we at least have had had “Glorious Goodwood Quatar Races” so that we don’t fully lose our tradition?

It’s bad enough not to have a Spinnaker Tower any more but it named Emirates Tower painted in red.

Does anyone else share my views?
