Found some good exotica and some new stuff to laugh and point at (details later) at Goodwood today. Took a fair bit of stuff with the camera but I'll start with my favourite

    Citroen have decided that they are fed up with parking dents. Their solution? cover the car in rubber pockets filled with air.........

    If you need an estate car I think you could do worse than one of these.

    That is certainly different, looks like it had an argument with a cheese wire and lost....

    Ford are trying to take a slice of the prestige market with the new Vignale range. Will they succeed?

    Think the problem is Mondeo man is now Audi A4-A6 man therefore I think Ford are going to have a hard sell with this one given the lack of Prestige the brand has.

    The likely high levels of depreciation probably won't help the matter!

    Could not believe the size of the Mondeo, it's enormous!

    Oh dear indeed!  Not entirely sure what went wrong there... All I know is it made me squirm in my seat when it happened :thumbd:

    I'm surprised Peter didn't try and get the Biposto to run up the track, that would have been an epic watch

    The Biposto did go up in the supercar group, presume on each day of the FOS.

    There was a video of it from the official site, but has since disappeared...

    Chris Hoy tryed a bit too hard to prove he is now a racing driver!
