Goodwood is famous for its revival and festival of speed, the circuit has seen many famous racing legends attack it over the years and track days are always popular for novices and fully seasoned racing drivers to attend, todays was organised by the Brooklands Members Trust and with just under 40 cars from all eras it was going to be an enjoyable day.

Although I was attending the track day the camera was in tow, track day photography at Goodwood is always great fun, I decided to use the D850 and 70-200mm 2.8 telephoto lens, zoom lenses give you so much flexibility and are always great to work with, the access to the straights at Goodwood are always good so anything too powerful in terms of longer zooms is wasted. Also with the sessions flowing throughout the day I could only stay near the pit straight as I was in and out of the car for the track sessions. Their were a variety of cars in attendance today for the Goodwood track day, AC Cobras, Aston Vantage, Jaguar XK120 in racing livery and on to the modern Lotus Evora, BMW M4 and an array of Porsches.
