10 Instagrammers to follow during the Goodwood Revival
You’d never believe that Amy Shore has only been shooting cars for two years, given how well her distinct style suits the subject. Her adaptability means she’s great at capturing the characters and the details, too – ideal for an event like the Goodwood Revival.
Racing driver and automotive consultant Sam Hancock is almost always behind the wheel, driving an immense variety of historic machinery, be it single-seater '70s F1 cars or big Lister bangers (one of which, incidentally, he’ll be racing at the Revival). He’s also got an eye for the eclectic, and a real appreciation of motorsport history.
Rémi’s sumptuous galleries on Classic Driver are immensely popular, and for good reason. He was also one of the few photographers at the Revival last year who was the subject of almost as many pictures as he took, his Best Dressed award-winning sailor get-up (and distinctive beard) proving particularly popular.
Leica has enrolled photographer and creative director Dan Rubin to shoot the Revival from a new perspective, with one of its famous ‘M’ cameras. Cars don’t feature on Dan’s Instagram feed, so it will be interesting to see how he tackles the weekend…
Always a crowd-pleaser at Goodwood, Jochen Mass will be racing a thunderous Ford Galaxie in the St Mary’s Trophy. Follow him for a driver’s-eye view of the Revival.
Peter Aylward’s Goodwood Festival of Speed photos proved particularly popular, and we’re pleased to say he’ll be working with us again at the Revival. Variety is key with Peter’s shots, so if you can’t make it to Goodwood, fear not – simply visit Classic Driver on Monday morning.
Classic Driver dealer DK Engineering’s presence at this year’s Revival is significant – James Cottingham will race a Ferrari 500TR, Ford GT40 and a Tojeiro-Jaguar, while in the Ferrari-only Earls Court show, a number of DK’s cars (including a 250 LM) will take centre stage.
Another of Leica’s recruits, photography student Kim Leuenberger will be documenting the event in her indulgent style. Let’s hope she’s as good at shooting real cars as she is at miniature models. Three words: depth of field.
RM Sotheby’s Managing Director and Auctioneer Max Girardo isn’t just a dab hand on the rostrum; he’s also a skilled historic racer. Driving a Ferrari 250 GT ‘Tour de France’ in the Lavant Cup this weekend, we’re hoping he’ll prove as entertaining to watch (and sideways) as he was at last year’s 72nd Members’ Meeting.
It may seem obvious, but Goodwood’s own Instagram feed is regularly updated with a variety of behind-the-scenes highlights. If you’re reading this on Friday and not at the Revival, prepare for envy to set in.
... and, of course, Classic Driver
Remember you can follow our Classic Driver Instagram account, which is regularly updated with superb original photography. And our very own Joe Breeze, Alex Easthope, and J. Philip Rathgen will all be present. We hope to see some of you there...
