One moment we are straining our brains in the creative meetings which shape these events, the next the boys and girls at Goodwood Motorsport Content are slaving their brains to the bone in global dealings to bring the right people – and the right cars and motor-cycles – to the event, and the Goodwood Estate people are working equally hard to prepare the site, with absolutely everything that entails, from public conveniences and rubbish bins to umpteen miles of aluminium tracking, shelters, marquees, massive temporary buildings created and provided by the major manufacturers displaying at FOS… and more… and more… and so much more.
