Ahh, the mellifluous twerping of skylarks, the earnest sawing of grasshoppers, the scent of freshly-mown grass and the doffed caps of the grounds staff… On an ordinary summer’s day on the road to Goodwood House, the resting traveller’s senses are assailed by sounds and sights bucolic.
Only those strange rubbery deposits on the drive are in any way extraordinary, curious visitors might think… Or they might have been to the Festival of Speed last year, and witnessed these amazing smoky burn-outs for themselves.
