A few weeks ago. I went to the Goodwood festival of speed.
http://www.goodwood.co.uk/site/conte...Hillclimb.aspx
I though some of you petrolheads would like to see some of my pictures.
The festival of speed is based around a hillclimb. but instead of hillclimb cars, they get classic and current race cars and bikes to go up the 1.16 mile course.
The winner was Justin Law – Jaguar XJR8/9 – 44.19s From a standing start.
F1 drivers attend butjust show off doing burnouts and donuts in front of the stands.
The supercar makers show their cars as well.
Three days of petrolhead fun.
There is also a Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’:
