Goodwood Festival of Speed

Driving Goodwood with Lord March

The master of the Goodwood estate shows us the best way up his backyard racing circuit in an Aston Martin Vanquish.

Back in the early days of motorsports, racecars were piloted principally by European noblemen. After all, who else had the leisure time and the means to partake in such frivolity? But these days the noble racer is a dying breed, replaced by professionals who make racing their one pursuit in life. That’s what makes Charles Henry Gordon-Lennox, Earl of March and Kinrara, such a breath of fresh air. Popularly known as Lord March, he’s the master of the Goodwood estate and host of the Festival of Speed.

The FoS, Goodwood Revival and other events take place on Lord March’s lawn, so who better to show us how to best negotiate the 1.16-mile hill climb than the good Earl himself? Here he takes to the wheel of the Aston Martin Vanquish to show us what’s what.
