The event i have chosen to document is Goodwood Festival of Speed held in Chichester West Sussex.
The Festival of Speed is basically a huge garden party that has been put on by petrol heads showcasing the best, most desired and unique motor vehicles around the world from vintage cars to the latest super bikes topped off by a star lineup of top past and present drivers as well as celebrity car enthusiasts.
The events main sponsor was Lotus this year due to Lotus celebrating their 60th anniversary. Lotus used this opportunity to showcase their vast array of cars from their old Formula 1 racers to their new fully electric prototype as seen below.

This event is not just for visitors to sit back in and watch it is for them to be able to touch and even sit in their dream cars, something not many other shows in the world offer. I think this really picture sums up the show with one of my friends getting out of his all time favourite car showing the hands on experience people get when visiting the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The whole event is such a hands on and intimate experience and i feel the photos i have chosen really show this as it proves how close you can get to the cars racing by and also the cars that are on show throughout the event. Something that no other event in the UK offers quite like Goodwood.
I enjoyed my experience so much at this event i have already pre ordered my ticket for next year!
