What do you love best about Goodwood?
Of all the Goodwood events, the Festival of Speed is my favourite. To be involved in such a massive global event every year is always mind blowing, but it’s particularly special for me as my dad takes part on the forest rally stage with his two cars. Rally driving is one of my hobbies when I’m not working: I’ve co-driven with Dad in over 35 rallies so far, including here at Goodwood.
Who are your heroes?
My biggest hero has always been my dad. It might sound clichéd, but he always stood by my decisions and supported me throughout my career whilst teaching me the importance of hard work. Also, being a rally driver is pretty amazing and I hope one day to follow in his footsteps (if I could ever afford it).
In terms of cooking heroes, fine dining chefs have never really interested me. Of course I have a lot of respect for what they do, but tweezers, potions and powders have never been my thing. The old-school guys like Rick Stein have always appealed to me because of the simplicity of their approach: just good, honest, tasty food, made with exceptional ingredients; much like what we do here at Goodwood.
