I was recently asked by Goodwood to photograph the Festival of Speed. As a photographer and a petrol head, I jumped at the chance!

For those not familiar with the Festival of Speed, it is a Hill Climb race held on the Goodwood Estate every year. It first started 20 years ago but has grown quickly into one of the most popular events on the motor sport calendar.

It attracts all the big names in motor sport and the automotive industry and gives fans the chance to get closer to their heroes past and present than they ever could at a Grand Prix.

This years theme was ‘Young Guns, Born to Win’ and was the first time that the current world champion Sebastian Vettel, still only 25, has made an appearance.

My weekend was spent walking the event and photographing all the action. It was tiring work but I’m really pleased with the results. A few of which you can see below.

Big thank you to Ellen, Paul, Claire and Jon at Goodwood. Can’t wait for next year!
