Made only my 2nd visit to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, as usual an amazing array of vehicles on show, both new and old as well as various celebrities from the Motorsport world.

Just a few random images I took during the day posted in no particular order!

Some great images here. I've never been to this event, although have thought about attending many a year, I must rectify that :grin:

Likewise, I've been promising myself a trip to the Festival of Speed for many years. I must make it happen, it look a great event from these cracking shots.

I hope that lovely little silver beemer is back running soon.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires
