    A few weeks ago, my dad & I took a trip to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a celebration of all typed of cars, past and present. So I thought you'd all like to see some of my best shots taken there :D.

    Our first location was the Forest rally stage, a 2-mile dirt track. We decided to hole up for a little at the specified jump. This was one of my favourites, the classic rally car, an Audi Quattro, going at it like a bull in a china shop :p.
    ISO 400, 1/1000, f/5.6, 200mm lens.

    After that, we headed to the technology centre, a showcase for prototypes and concepts. Not much came of this because of the crowds, but I quite like this, the Ford Iosis Max. Just look at that speedo!
    1/25, f/3.5, 18mm.

    On our way to our next planned "stop", we came across the hillclimb track, giving me a chance to try out my (pretty poor) panning skills.
    1/320, f/8, 72mm.

    One of the final shots of the day was of these three Mercedes Mclaren SL's. I really wanted to focus on the distinctive noses of the unmistakable Merc's.
    1/250, f/13, 55mm.

    Finally, looking back, I saw these three Toyotas lined up perfectly, each car poking out of the previous one. I absolutely loved it, and I used a wide aperture to blow the ugly background out of focus.
    1/800, f/2.8, 90mm.

    Well, I hope you enjoyed them all and, as always, C&C is appreciated. Thanks for looking! :D

    Argh, sorry for not replying sooner. Thanks for that, Mylo! Yeah, I got pretty lucky with that photo. It's remarkable, when you saw it, the cars only seemed to get 3 inches off the ground, max. But when I took a photo, damn. Some of the drivers were complete nutters ;).

    To Boog: Thanks again :D. I'm not sure if the Toyota... Corolla?'s hood was dented or not, that might just be the styling.

    Thanks for the comments!
