Goodwood. A single place so synonymous with classic motoring, it instantly is recognised by enthusiasts the world over as an event that you must attend at least once in your life.

For our technician Tamas, that was this weekend. It began early to make sure that by the time he arrived at the hallowed West Sussex circuit, he still had the entire day to soak in and absorb every incredible piece of machinery.

As you can see by the photos, there was a plethora of vintage metal. From racing minis to a 300SL Gullwing parked in a car park. At Revival, every vintage taste is catered for.

Each class would line up side by side for their audience to pour-over. These irreplaceable pieces of motorsport history, poised to get out on track and do what they were always intended for. With a wave of noise and excitement, these mechanical gladiators left the paddock.

Once on track, the cars were at it hell for leather. Every tenth of a second counted, even in such a prestigious grid.

The atmosphere around the pits and throughout the grounds of the circuit was electric. Throngs of wide-eyed fans walking in surges past legends of yesteryear to even just have the slightest chance of a glimpse at their automotive heroes.

Throughout the day, each of the races was announced of the tannoy. With that, you could watch the waves of adoring fans rush to the circuit while the previous spectators filed their way back in. This was the pace of the day, an ebb and floe from the paddocks out to the circuit. The cars though, were where the attention was.

Without a doubt, we will be back next year for this amazing event.
