Immediately after the Donington Historic Festival, we hit the road, bound for West Sussex. A short sleep at a B & B and we were off to Goodwood’s best-attended Breakfast Club – dedicated to the Supercar.
While everyone’s definition of what comprises a “Supercar” differs, every interpretation must surely be covered by all the remarkable machinery on display. From the 1996 Japanese GT title-winning McLaren F1 GTR to delicate Ferrari Dinos via Iso Grifo, TVR Sagaris, every conceivable Porsche, Aston Martin and Lamborghini. A display of cars so remarkable it’s hard to find the words to describe. While “car park shows” are not normally my thing, the sheer scope and variety of wonderful automobiles is worth the long trip down south.
It is so pleasant to see families with the dogs enjoying a morning out. I love seeing the reaction of young lads as their eyes fall upon a car they’ve only seen before as a bedroom poster. I don’t think that buzz of being in the company of an F40 or a Zonda ever loses its appeal, and to appreciate all this fine machinery at Goodwood is the icing on the cake.
