Ok, so I lied about the trains but the rest is true! For our second day at the Goodwood Racing Revival Kevin and I focussed our attentions on the track and the sky. Whereas yesterday??s track action featured qualifying sessions today??s action saw proper wheel to wheel racing action, all of it in priceless classic cars. There were also several themed parades ?? including one for the Mini??s 50th birthday and another to celebrate Stirling Moss??s 80th birthday. The other major events were a number of air displays, mostly by World War II planes. However, at the end of the afternoon the big attraction was a display by an Avro Vulcan bomber, a 1960s Cold War plane. This was supposed to happen last year but it blew an engine (in spite of recently undergoing a £7 million rebuild!) and wasn??t able to fly.
Kevin and I both took lots of photos today using my camera so the images I've posted here are a mixture of both our shots. Basically, the car shots are mine and the planes are Kevin's (although the Vulcan is all mine!).
