Photo Essay // Goodwood Festival of Speed Day Two

Words and photos by Andrew Coles

Friday at most motorsport events is usually a quiet ease into the full action to come on the weekend… but at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, it’s anything but.

Everywhere you look, there’s action. In the form up area as the crews and drivers get ready for a run, on the hill itself, and even in the car parks.

We’re not usually ones to be car spotters, but you can’t deny a line of 10 Paganis, with a Chiron, LaFerrari and an F50 parked nearby. But at Goodwood, that’s just what the spectators arrive in. The spectator carpark alone rivals most organised car shows.

We ventured today to the rally stage at the top of the hill – it’s a fair walk, and it’s quite warm. But the sight of seeing several of McRae’s works cars being flung through the Forest Stage was worth the effort expended.

This just marks the halfway point of the event – plenty more to come.
