As usual by 7am the cars began rolling into the circuit under a hazy blue sky and with the heady whiff of bacon and coffee in the air. Although there is the occasional event at Goodwood where Lord March doesn’t manage to get the weather to see things his way (ahem, Supercar Sunday …), Soft Top Sunday looks like being a triumphant return to form.
The selection of cars invited is as diverse as ever and over the course of the morning we’re going to put together a few galleries to illustrate this, starting with this gallery of early arrivals. So far we’ve seen Elises, Aston Martins, Ferraris, Corvettes as well as various Triumphs, TVRs, Austins and many Mazda MX5s. That said, it’s only just turned 8am! Stay tuned to find out how the place looks when it’s full!
It’s going to be another beautiful day at Goodwood. Can somebody bring the sun cream?
