Catching up with an event from the ‘summer’, the theme for this year’s Festival of Speed was ‘Full Throttle – The Endless Pursuit of Power’. Centred around a hill-climb through the estate, current and historic motor racing cars, bikes and drivers hurtled up the tight course which passes Goodwood House and the BMW central feature sculpture. The modern cars included Formula 1 teams and 2016 season drivers or test drivers, plus others from the more recent past. Also on show were the motoring industry’s latest models, from family hatch-backs to the fastest supercars – all looking for customers. Although the weather looked promising in the morning, it soon closed in to become overcast and wet.
