'Simply Unmissable' is the only term Goodwood can use to describe the first year of the reopened Members' Meeting. The roar of engines, lovely guests and a bustle of excitement filled the Motor circuit for the most spectacular weekend and I feel very lucky to of been there with my team of photographers. The motor circuit saw some of the most precious of motor cars taking on the uniqueness of Goodwood's track for the first time, for example, the 1980's Group 1 racing saloons. Perhaps the glorious weather and the joy of the members built up an atmosphere quite like no other, but one thing is for sure, the 72nd Members's meeting was special for all who were in attendance.
Although I wasn't the picture editor for Goodwood during FoS 2013, which took place on the scorching hot long weekend of the 11th - 14th of July, I was lucky enough to attend as a photographer. The event celebrated many landmarks such as the 50th anniversary of Porsche 911, 50 years of McLaren & importantly the 20th year of the Event itself which was first launched in 1993 by Lord March.
The Festival of Speed, held in the grounds of Goodwood House itself is one of the worlds largest Motorsport events. With a turn out of over 185,000 & its ability to uniquely bring together the top F1 cars, car enthusiasts, bikes and drivers the Festival of Speed is an event not to be missed!
