For the second day of the Goodwood Racing Revival Kevin and I headed straight for Lavant Corner and bagged ourselves a prime spot beside the fence to watch some wheel to wheel racing - we certainly weren't disappointed. The first couple of races were for cars from the 1930s, 40s and 50s and were relatively uneventful, although there was some close competition. However, when we got to the first race of the afternoon, the St. Mary's Trophy, things livened up enormously. The field was made up of saloon cars from the early 1960s and included models as tiny as the iconic Mini and as large as the Ford Galaxie 500. This led to some great battles as the likes of the nimble Minis and Alfa Romeos used their nifty handling to keep up with the more unwieldy but much more powerful Fords and Jaguars. We had a close encounter with an errant wheel from a Mini which bounced off the fence some six feet from us, thankfully harming no one but giving us all a bit of a shock. However, the real drama came when a couple of backmarkers got caught up in the battle between the front runners and one of them became airborne. As luck would have it I had my camera up to shoot in any case as I was rooting for the little Alfa Romeo GTA in its fight with the much larger Ford Galaxie so I simply kept my finger welded to the shutter button until all the carnage had finished. Thankfully no one was injured but the incident left quite a few bent cars and dented egos behind!
