This year the Goodwood Revival weather was not on our side. Luckily, although cloudy and grey on Friday, the rain kept off. The picture on Saturday was totally different as the rain poured down. Thankfully Sunday was beautiful!
There was a lot to see, enough to occupy anyone with a three day ticket. Cars, planes, bikes, celebrities, drama, fashions and more….
