A stately home in the sun, fast cars, girls in both kinds of minis, ah it must be Goodwood.
The 2009 Goodwood Festival of Speed is approaching and in anticipation Lord March invited the
Fouth Estate down to his gaff for a bit of a preview, he even laid on some clement weather.
Times may be hard but there is still much to celebrate in the motoring world, our love affair with
the car ain't gonna end anytime soon, no matter what the control freaks and killjoys think.
So this year's Festival is going to a treat, both Audi and Bugatti receive a telegram from Her
Majesty, Mini turns 50............John Elwin has a comprehensive list.............all that remains to be
said is get yourself down to West Sussex at least twice this year.
