GOODWOOD: Truly a mecca
for Car, Motorcycle and Aviation fans alike. There are two major events each
year, the 'Goodwood Festival of Speed' and the 'Goodwood Revival', I have been
to both, albeit in separate years, truly magnificent.
Please click on the heading or associated image to be taken to
the dedicated page covering the event.....
FESTIVAL OF SPEED, 2011:
The world’s largest car event in the heart of Sussex,
England. Magnificent, cars, motorcycles, hill climb events, rallying and
critically a celebration of all things Indy Cars and the 50th Anniversary of
the E-Type Jaguar.
The 'clickable' image depicts
the massive structure installed in front of Goodwood House in celebration of
the E-Type Jaguar's 50th Anniversary.
GOODWOOD REVIVAL, 2009:
I picked the right one, Sir Stirling Moss' 80th
Birthday Celebrations requiring the obligatory 80+ of Sir Stirling's
Cars on parade, Dr Buzz Aldrin judging Aircraft, Murray Walker being Murray and
James May, well, being James! From a motorcycling perspective
Wayne Gardner, Phil Read and Mick Grant to name but a few were in
Cars, Motorcycles and Aircraft of
various forms were all there, flying displays, a Lancaster, Spitfires,
Hurricanes, Mustangs and a certain Vulcan Bomber!
