On the Monday after Revival we drove back over to the Goodwood Kennels, as we were coming into Petworth down the narrow lane beside the high wall of Petworth House what should come thundering towards us in the other direction than this - the three and half litre 1931 Talbot AV that Gareth Burnett piloted to second in the Brooklands Trophy the previous day - amazing to see on the road, let alone pass about an inch from your wing giving it the full beans.
One of most successful new additions to the Goodwood weekend this year was competitive racing on the Friday. And what a spectacle it was. Timed to deliberately run into dusk on Friday evening, the Freddie March Memorial Trophy was a ninety minute two-driver race for cars in the spirit of the Goodwood Nine Hour races from 1952 to 1955. The atmosphere was amazing as the evening light faded away and the old race cars switched to the glow of sixty year old headlights to guide their way around this historic track. Hopefully this race will become a fixture for years to come.
The countdown is on to Goodwood Revival (4 sleeps!) so here's some vintage Porsche porn from Hedingham Castle last weekend to help pass the time...
