Silver Arrows at Goodwood Revival

A dream assignment - visit the Goodwood Revival as a guest of Mercedes Benz UK in order to sketch the reunion of 10 Silver Arrows racing cars.

The weekend was incredible, wonderful party atmosphere, great racing and the Silver Arrows display was stunning. It was a real honour to witness first hand the sound and smell of these cars which my Grandfather saw and photographed as a young man in Germany. Thanks to all the mechanics who put up with me sitting in their garage, Mercedes and Audi for bringing these amazing machines and not least Angus and Rob who invited me and spoilt us rotten!

The garages were pretty busy (and noisy!) so i mainly did quick sketches with a Prismacolor pencil. There are a couple of watercolours at the end though. Hope you like them...

Thanks everyone. Nice to hear from you Ian - good to hear I wasn't in the way - there wasn't much room. Should be plenty of coverage of the rocket test on the 3rd - think it'll be streamed live too.
