Sensory Overload At The Festival Of Speed
Is This Even Real?

As the pinnacle of everything motorsport related, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has always been a dream event for me. And last month, I finally got the opportunity to realise it, thanks to a trip with the team at the Ghost Games studio.

I don’t even know where to start trying to describe my experience at this vast event…

I guess the first thing that struck me was the smell. You could almost taste the burning rubber, even before walking through the gates.

It was nothing short of a sensory overload. It could well have been a music festival; a symphony of rotaries, screaming V8s to V12s to V16s, and the screeching tires of these four-wheeled (and sometimes two-wheeled) beasts as they left their marks on the tarmac.

In all honesty, I was left a bit star-struck, as cheesy as that sounds. But even though actual stars and legends were present, for me the cars were the real attraction.

Everything was there. And when I say everything, I mean everything! From Group C fire breathers to NASCARs and rally cars; from Can-Am and time attack machines to modern day GT3 racers.

I was amazed at how open everything was too, especially when it came to how close you could get to the cars. I’d never experienced anything quite like it. I don’t think there could be a better way to encounter beautiful, exotic and rare cars from around the world.

I was surprised by the sheer number of people at the event, so trying to snap a photo of any car without a head in the way was quite a challenge. It’s at times like this where being 6ft4in is a real advantage!

The paddock was alive with the sound of machines from all eras at idle and warming up; pure bliss. I could have easily spent the entire day just wandering around this area.

I’ll admit to not being the best when it comes to photography, but I loved having the opportunity to shoot some of my favourite cars.

And one of those was the Mazda 767B, because anyone who knows me will know that I’m a rotary lover at heart. Of all the cars at this year’s event this was my favourite machine, and even though I was a little saddened the 787B wasn’t present, this was just as amazing to see in person. I even got to hear it at max revs during an engine warm-up session; what a sound it made!

One day just isn’t enough at an event of this magnitude though.

I’ll leave you with a few more images that I took. It was so difficult to pick the best from the thousands I ended up with, but hopefully they’ll give you a little more of an insight into this very special day.

arslangolic Thank you Arslan, I wanted to try make them fit the theme haha. And was also a little inspired by Peter Aylwards photography, but I didn't quite get there xD.

rally2727 did`n even try )

That Group44 XJS though!
Seriously someone should spotlight Bob Tulius or Group44, they did some amazing things with some fantastic machinery.

11

Oh god... The filters..... Yikes

12

xrockonx  I was excited to see an article that Khyzyl shot. Getting a consistent look to hundreds of photos shot in different conditions is not easy. Besides, look at his Instagram and you'll see he doesn't spend his time behind a camera.

13

767B heaven! The best motoring event on the planet. Enjoyed that story Kyza.

Don't care what everyone else says, some of the best photos I've seen on speedhunters in a while. It's nice to see a different take on things.

15

That 400R. Holy crap. What I wouldn't give to see one

16

Amazing photos! Really liked them. Keep up good work, Khyzyl!

17

I really love the Jag XJS, look at that engine

One of the turbo porsches drove past in the pit lane and was spring so much fuel our it made my baguette taste of petrol. Awesome fun.

20

I actually liked your compositions a lot! Although it kind of made me wish the people standing around the gt40 were dressed period correct lmao. Only complaint is the images are a little dark.
