Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2017 highlights

FOS 2017
The weekend of The Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017 has to come to a close and we are reflecting on this unique automotive event; it literally seems like a dream - the people, the cars, the sounds in fact the whole atmosphere of the festival was like nothing we've ever attended before.
 
The Festival of Speed has been running since 1993, when Lord March decided to bring back car racing back to the Goodwood estate. Since then it has grown to astronomical proportions - it hit 153,000 visitors in 2003, and since then the event has been capped at 150,000 and these numbers aren't really surprising, with everybody in the car world wanting to be a part of the Festival of Speed in Chichester.
