Here's my photos from the last day at Vintage at Goodwood, with photos of the most excellent Chap Olympiad.
Waiting for the taxi to the site in the morning.
Vintage bus taking people from the station to the site.
In the Leisure Dome for 'action paint-in' happenings, inspired and directed by the psychedelic beat poetry of Ken Nordine's 1967 'Colors' album.
Armed with their pots of paint, the artistes await their cue.
By the 'beach.'
Aston Martin. Mmmm.
E Type jag for the win!
And my favourite - a Morris Traveller.
Outside the Demon Drone's Wall Of Death.
The main stage.
The Chap magazine staged a mini-Olympiad at 3pm every day of the festival in the 1940s Dig for Victory area.
Lighting the Olympic Pipe.
Passing the Olympic pipe around.
Olympic cucumber sandwich discus throwing.
A graceful movement, but sadly the actual throw fell rather short.
An inspirational cucumber sandwich technique involved the gentleman taking off his braces...
...and cunningly positioning them into a catapult-like contraption.
Sadly, the sandwich wasn't discharged as expected and the crucial proximity to the plate (measured in umbrella lenghts) proved disappointingly excessive.
The next contestant chooses his weapon.
The tug of hair competition with the gentlemen pitched against the fillies.
The chaps lose ground.
It's a total win for the ladies!
The probable victors of the three legged limbo celebrate.
