There’s not long to go before the Goodwood Members’ Meeting now. This means the circuit is busy several days each week with racing drivers testing their cars in readiness. I found some time to visit Goodwood today to capture some of the action and begin to get my photographic eye in gear for the main event in early April.

2019 is the sixtieth anniversary of the Mini. To celebrate, the meeting will include the Betty Richmond Trophy – a race for sixty Minis! This meant I was in seventh heaven today as there were loads of Minis in the paddock and on the circuit. Of course, there will be plenty of other track action and I didn’t focus my photographic efforts solely onto these cute little cars. I also spent some time people watching around the paddock, but I’ll share those in a separate post – you can have too much of a good thing!

I would hope the driver won't be asleep at the wheel during the race!
