1927 Bentley racing car seen at the 2004 Goodwood Revival

This is one of 170+ images of classic cars and aircraft that I took at the September 2004 Circuit Revival meeting at Goodwood, in Sussex.

The restored Bentley below was photographed over the 3 day weekend at Goodwood. This silver aluminium Old Mother Gun is a racing car of the type often seen at motor racing meets and events in years gone by, this particular Bentley racing car dating back to the 1927 era. Such cars would have appeared in racing car races at motorsport meetings, such as those at Goodwood.
