.:Goodwood 2007 Festival Of Speed:.

I went on the Sunday with my dad. It had been raining all weekend so the fround was very wet and muddy. it rained on and off throughout the day, and the track was very slippery so the cars didn't go as fast as they usually would, but it was still good fun.

Although because it rained, I didn't take as many photographs as previous years.

Just like in 2005, I attended the Friday and Sunday days. This year on the Saturday I went to a wedding in Norwich - so I ended up driving the to following places:

Friday Morning: Milton Keynes to Goodwood
Friday Night: Goodwood to Norwich (stayed the night in a hotel)
Saturday Night: Norwich to Milton Keynes
Sunday: Milton Keynes to Goodwood and back

Around 750 miles in all! Actually my brother drove on the Sunday so it wasn't too bad.

The Thursday night before driving to Goodwood, my Alfa Romeo broke down (in true Alfa Romeo fashion!) so I had to take my dads car. In the end this proved to be a good things as after putting all that mileage on it, he traded it in the follwing week for a new car!

It was more fun driving down the previous year though - in my VX220.

Just like last year, the event was superb and I took lots of photographs (All, Friday, Sunday, Kevins Sunday photos).

I went on the Friday and Sunday. From Milton Keynes on the Friday it took me 3 hours to get there and 4 hours to get back and on the Sunday it took 2 hours to ge there and 3 to get back.

Both were excellent days, with cars and bikes of all varieties that you can see and hear going up the track and also walk around. I also saw a few F1 drivers including Jenson Button, David Coulthard and Fernando Alonso. See the pictures!
