Goodwill festival of speed... and...

I have had a friend from the US over for a weeks vacation, so we took in the festival of speed at Goodwood, the Sammy Miller museum, and Beaulieu, National Motor Museum. Goodwood was better than expected, Sammy Millers is always a great day out, but Beaulieu, was a total rip off, and I would not recommend it to anybody! this was my first visit, it was also my last.

Now as you can well imagine, I have a few pictures to share, but not all today, but I will start with a few from Goodwood...

And a good place to start...





Stirling Moss...



Sammy Miller...

















Steve McQueen's car collection was there too, so very cool...

Bugatti type 35, still fast enough to play with the big boys, and sounds as good as it looks...

bucket list item right there.

IOM was great and Goodwood is right up there in the top 5 as well. Need to get there, at least make reservations for sometime in the future. I hear it can be tough to get in.

Thanks kev.

I'd read about it, looks like they took the right footpeg off and sent him up the hill. No brakes and all. Looks like they may have changed the tire.

Did this stay out of the bales and off the flint wall ? Scarey !

What does this event cost to attend ? And is there a dress code ?
If I ever make it to England , I will be traveling around by moto and somewhat clothing restricted.
Goodwood looks like something to keep me in tingles the whole time.
