Goodwood Festival of Speed 2004

The Goodwood Festival of Speed just gets better each year. This year's theme was 'Young Chargers - Old Masters', and brought together the famous Fathers and Sons and the machines that made, or will make, them famous. Excitement and nostalgia went hand in hand, with a surprise round every corner. Rolls-Royce celebrated its 100th anniversary with an impressive display and there were also air displays, Cartier 'Style et Luxe', dunhill 'Soapbox Challenge', live music and a huge open air motor show. The event certainly lived up to its unique reputation.

The Festival was packed with suprises and excitement as the world's glamorous cars, drivers, bikes and riders celebrated speed on the hill climb.
