Le Mans Cars At Goodwood - #Goodwood #FOS

Amongst the shiny new machinery, polished F1 cars and cherished classics at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed lurk the endurance racers.

These cars have raced at Le Mans and many have come straight from the track wearing the patina of 24 hours of racing.  These cars, with their tiny, uncomfortable cockpits, big wings and tyres and engines hidden away under bodywork are, to me, the most beautiful cars on display at Goodwood.

There are plenty of Le Mans cars at Goodwood.  These are my four favourites.
