Cartier Sparkles at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018

Cartier’s Style et Luxe lawn at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed is one of the most spectacular concours d’elegance in the world and The Rake was honoured to take part in the fun.

To pinch from a phrase I used to use in my teenage years regarding a particularly important liminal ritual, I have lost my G-Plates. The funny thing about Goodwood is that, much like when I said to contemporaries that I had never been to Paris, there is a look of confusion and shock. ‘Surely you must have been to Goodwood?’ they say. Whilst the invitations have come my way, alas, it hasn’t been something I have been able to attend. Usually, with annual occasions, people build expectations by continually querying their opinion of me based on whether I have been to the ancestral home of the Richmonds, so when yesterday, I headed over, I was concerned it may be a case of an over-egged pudding. I am delighted to say I was wrong.
