Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015 – My favourite 25….

My seventh year working back at the Festival of Speed and it’s still difficult to take it all in – there’s so much activity going on all of the day and much of it happening at the same time – that it’s virtually impossible to cover everything.

As in previous years I was commissioned by and working exclusively for Audi UK and my primary objectives during the four days are to record their presence on the hill and their activities at three different locations they have at Goodwood.

The cars run in batches so you don’t know always know when each car will run within the batch – sometimes it’s a case of getting to a position and waiting. During the wait (unless an Audi runs early in the batch) I experiment ‘creatively’ on the other cars that fly past me. The commentary is a great help, as they’re talking about each car as it runs up the hill, occasionally you lose this, and especially up near the flint wall you don’t always know what’s coming round the corner at a rapid rate.

Below are 25 of my favourite images from this year’s Festival of Speed, to be honest, it could have been 125…
