Festival of Speed – The People

This is the second post relating to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s been a busy summer so it has taken me a while to complete this entry and there may still be one more to come!

This event is wonderful for its cars but also for the people who drive them or indeed simply spectate. Hopefully these images give a flavour of ‘the people’ at Goodwood.

Its twenty years since the Festival of Speed came to Goodwood, courtesy of the Earl of March. It’s grown and grown, year on year, but one person who has regularly been invited but never come, made his debut appearance on this occasion – Alain Prost or ‘The ‘Professor’, the great Formula One champion of days gone by.
