This is the 17th Goodwood Revival, with over 400 cars and motorcycles from all over the world, the 15 races and line up of drivers and riders is quite an incredible sight. Over the next 3 days this was our base, a place for us to dine with new guests every day, and enjoy afternoon tea in between the afternoon races. With our own look out directly over the track, we couldn’t have been anymore spoilt…

After lunch it was time to take a look at all the beautiful cars and motorcycles in the paddock and pit lanes. How when there are so many beautiful cars are you supposed to decide which is your favourite? So I played my own game. Lets find all the number 6 cars to add to my collection of 6’s.
