Kevin and I had a day together at the Goodwood Festival of Speed today, getting a fix of everything speedy. Once again I took quite a few detail shots but I seemed to have more luck with moving subjects. The Red Arrows gave a magnificent display and we had a fantastic view from the spot where we had been watching a collection of Lotuses (or should that be Loti?!) storm up the hill climb. They??re flying with a team of seven aircraft this year, rather than the usual nine, as two of their pilots were tragically killed in separate accidents last year. Later in the afternoon we also had a visit from a Eurofighter Typhoon which swooped and roared in the skies above us. Finally we trekked up the hill to the Rally Stage. I??ve shot here before and knew that the best spot was beside the jump. We weren??t disappointed and I caught several dynamic shots of cars with all four wheels in the air as they became airborne.
Speed ?? on land and in the air
