    It's taken me an inordinate amount of time to develop these, but now I hope you will indulge me. The Goodwood Revival is an annual event that celebrates a golden age of motorsport and aviation. It's the done thing to dress the part...

    But my favourites were the pedal cars, who were tremendously competitive

    All shot with my redoubtable X-Pro1 plus a range of lenses; the remarkable 50-230, the stellar 90mm and the trusty 35mm - Fuji done me good yet again.

    I'll take that sweet little Mini, the Jag, and throw in the Norton.

    For a tiny little island, the British sure cranked out a lot of cool rides.

    Nice to see your selection, you went the day after me :) Great day out and thoroughly recommended, there were times when autofocus was much missed though ;)

    Great stuff - some superb machinery on display throughout this excellent set of photos, but shot No.9 (entitled Pedal Car Race 5) gets my vote. :thumbup:

    Is that a Norton Commando I spy? Dreams of youth!

    My favourite, every little racer has his/her own photographer :)
