EngageSportMode is NOT at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013

Unlike last year, EngageSportMode decided not to make the pilgrimage to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s a very long way from Newcastle Upon Tyne, ESM’s Mate Dave has just bought a house, and if you go every year it might lose the novelty.

So, instead, ESM is at home watching the Festival of Speed unfold by the power of Twitter. It’s a lot like being there, just without the £8 burgers, stupid blazers and the smell of burnt rubber and clutch. Almost identical you could say. It would have been great to have seen the Volkswagen Polo R WRC hammering up the hill in anger (or doing doughnuts like yesterday) but that will have to wait for another time.

The Festival of Speed organisers have set up a rather good live blog at http://foslive.goodwood.com showing off Instagram  and Twitter tagged photos and thoughts.
