The annual Goodwood Festival of Speed continues in earnest today at Goodwood House in West Sussex. This year's centrepiece is a sculpture celebrating 120 years of Mercedes Benz involvement in motor sport.
Visitors on Friday will have the chance to watch drivers try out the hill climb.
An intrepid pilot almost became hypothermic during an 8,000-mile solo flight in a 1940s biplane. Tracey Curtis-Taylor had to endure freezing weather during her eight-week adventure from Cape Town to Goodwood.
The 51-year-old finally realised her dream of recreating the pioneering 1928 flight of Lady Mary Heath who became the first person to fly alone across Africa. She set off from Cape Town in the Spirit of Artemis, a classic 1940s open cockpit Boeing Stearman biplane, and ended her journey in Goodwood.
Video. Goodwood Revival will attract thousands of spectators this weekend. It's a showcase for some of the most desirable older models to take to the circuit and prove they've still got what it takes. This from Richard Slee.
Video. Glorious Goodwood started today. Although it's not ladies day until Thursday, women will be hoping to have a starring role throughout the event. Horse racing is one of the few sports where women compete at the top level against their male rivals. Chris Maughan reports.
Some of the world's most famous motor racing drivers - past and present - are in Sussex this weekend for the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed. Now in its 20th year - the event is held in the grounds of Goodwood House, with racing taking place up its famous hill climb. Sarah Gomme reports.
The former Formula 1 racing car was driven by the F1 world champion Juan Manuel Fangio in 1954 when he clinched the second of his five titles.
The Argentinian drove the car to victory in the 1954 German and Swiss Grand Prix races.
A private buyer bought the car over the telephone.
"At £19.6 million inclusive, it's a new world record by some distance.
"We had eight telephone bidders at the start of the bidding and we had three people in the audience, so we had more than 10 people who were prepared to spend. Of those 11 bidders, only five got the chance to bid.
"Our own personal record of £5 million was achieved last year for a Bentley. The price that we achieved today is over three times that, so it's extraordinary.
"We always knew that it was a very, very important car."
