    Flew over the top of it this afternoon on the climb out from Goodwood Airfield (part of the Estate). It looked interesting from above, even in the set-up phase.

    That does not do it justice. The thing about it is that it's mostly open. You can fondle a Mercedes that Fangio or Moss may have raced. You can touch rare multimillion pound cars. You can only look in disbelief at cars that made loads of HP but had skinny tyres and little braking and certainly no seatbelts.

    "Footballers'" cars are ten a penny but it's nice to get up close and dream.

    Pricey but worth every penny.
