On Friday we went to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. As with our trip to Le Mans I am going to split my pictures up into a number of posts. This one is about the event in general.
Outside Goodwood House there was an amazing sculpture representing a race track featuring actual Lotus cars.
We walked around the displays and looked at some new cars the manufacturers were showing.
We waited outside the drivers club to try and see some famous racing drivers and get their autographs, this turned out to be quite boring so we didn’t stay long.
Later on we did see Emanuele Pirro so I got my picture taken.
The Moving Motor show featured lots of shiny new cars.
We had grandstand tickets, it was good to have a sit down, especially when it was raining.
From the grandstand we had a good view of the track with the paddock in the background.
In my next post I will tell you about some of the cars we saw.
