Goodwood The Final Day

The final day of Goodwood and the weather turned. Cold and windy with a lot of rain late. It kept the fashion show a little tame as lots of people were wrapped in coats. BUT the cars were as good as ever with some extraordinary racing. The TT which featured 150 million pounds worth of cars in the field was mind blowing. Horribly expensive cars sliding inside each other and rubbing panels. My new hero however is Mini driver Nick Swift who took the fight to the Ford Galaxy and Alfas with the car seemingly never straight anywhere. A superb drive.

Tomorrow he head to Belgium and the Spa circuit where we will start our tour with dinner tomorrow night.
