The opening day of the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard is always met with a heady mix of apprehension, anticipation and adrenaline. Perhaps this year, the overriding emotion is one of relief. Relief that we are all here, relief that the vaccinated and tested crowds are in, and relief that the Goodwood grounds are once again filled with the great and good from the world of motoring. As it should be.
