Classic Car Comment  Bathed in glorious British sunshine, Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 celebrated its Silver Jubilee in spectacular style, helped in no small measure by Porsche's incredible 70th birthday gathering of cars and drivers. I have in the past been a critic of Goodwood, same old thing, year after year, but at the weekend I changed my mind, 2018 will go down as a superb and memorable four days of motor sport-themed entertainment. Well done the Duke of Richmond and Gordon and his organising team.

Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact   The origins of Bentley go back to 1919, with the 3-litre announced in 1920 and appearing for the first time at Le Mans in 1922 where the Duff/Clement car finished 4th overall. In 1924 they returned, winning the race by a 10-mile margin. Then in 1925 Bentley misjudged their fuel consumption but won outright with the 4.5-litre in 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930. It was to be another 73 years before Bentley won again.
