My interest in the Goodwood Festival of Speed has waned over the last few years. The large crowds and massive manufacturer display stands make for a far too commerical experience for me. As a result, I've given it a miss for the last few years, but this year I needed to go as the Iso Grifo was being sold in the Bonhams auction. Here are a selection of photos from the event.
