The Goodwood Festival of Speed offers opportunity like few other places, and a concentration of cars and stars like no other.
As ever, there was plenty to see away from the thrill of the hill. Martini, Ferrari, Bernie Ecclestone and Tom Kristensen were all subject of celebrations, and that means lots of stunning cars out on display.
Such is the popularity of Goodwood, it’s always a challenge to try and avoid the big crowds; if something is happening, somehow everyone seems to know about it. So getting away from the madness often means you stumble across things most people overlook, such as the Stetson-wearing Arturo Merzario, or Pierluigi Martini nestling into a Brabham.
