How do you top the previous two races? Simple, add water!
That and increase value to stratospheric levels. Ok so, the recession took a bit of a bite, last year the combined value of the cars on track for the Goodwood TT was estimated to be a quarter of a billion pounds, this year the estimate is closer a a measly 100 million pounds.... but as I said, you add water.
We gave Martin Brundle some stick for being a bit slow with Nick Mason's 30 million pound GTO (gee, I can't imagine why he's be careful with it!...) Obviously Martin reads Axis and was embarrassed because this year he holds little back, and it was the first time he drove the car in the rain! Nice ripping Martin!
Check it out, it's a lot of fun, oh did I mention the bread van? Check out some pictures after the jump.
