With the first day nerves shaken off, Friday is already upon us at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by MasterCard, and our photographers were up bright and breezy to capture the early morning magic.

Walking around the paddocks whilst the dawn chorus breaks is one of our absolute favourite things to do, year in, year out. And it’s often the best time to get fully acquainted with some of the world’s most exciting kit before the action of the day kicks into gear.
Teams and entrants are busily preparing their cars, covers are coming off, and sometimes, you can find yourself completely alone. With a feeling that all this, is just for you. Not bad.
Le Mans classics, F1 monsters, tin tops, the very latest GTs, and everything in-between, our morning leg-stretcher around the paddocks gave up the goods. Luckily, we managed to remember to take some snaps for the later risers amongst you. Enjoy!
