Goodwood Motor Circuit hosted its annual Spring Sprint today so Kevin and I went along to take a look. There was a huge variety of cars participating, from ancient bone shakers through to modern sports cars however, as ever, my favourites in photographic terms were the 1960s and ??70s cars. We spent a while watching the cars shimmying out of the chicane (thankfully they all managed to keep on the track) then took a stroll around the paddock. I was rather taken with a Ford GT40 (a replica rather than an original) which the owner opened up for me to take some shots inside. Perhaps the most surreal moment of the day was when two Tesla Roadsters took to the track. They??re electric cars and almost silent ?? as they zipped around the chicane my camera shutter was actually noisier than they were!
