    There is probably no other country than England that is able to combine class, cameraderie en community in one event in a relaxed and friendly setting. From 1949 to 1966, Goodwood Members’ Meetings were run more than once a year over the 3.8-km circuit at Goodwood House, the estate of Lord March, near the south coast of England. Lord March revived the event in 2014. I was fortunate to be able to attend the 74th edition of the event. Herewith a photographic impression.

    After seeing photos like these, I wonder how people can be bothered to watch modern day race cars. All identical and totally without style.

    I'm not into motor sports, but I really enjoyed the set. That black and white shot is my favorite!

    the atmosphere is also quite different. The F1 is surrounded by secrecy. That secrecy is not about the engines used (everyone uses more or less the same ones) but in everything else: tire pressure, etc. Every minute of a driver's time is booked from the time they arrive for a race to the time they leave.

    In classic motor sports there is more cameraderie and knowledge sharing. Makes sense because it's not their living.
