The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the highlight of any racing fan’s calendar – whether you are a member of the media, a general car-mad fanatic or a racing driver yourself. The dynamic display of motorsport memorabilia in addition to the beastly modern-day machinery that is paraded up the famous hillclimb, makes it an event like no other in the world.
It has been suggested to me year after year that I should start following the MotoGP championship. Like most motorsport fans, I knew about the series and was familiar with the sport’s superstars like Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez, yet I had never sat down and watched a race. After getting my hands on BT Sport I decided that 2016 would be the perfect year to start watching the sport and thank God I did. In a year that has seen nine different winners, more crashes than ever before and a driver of just 23-years-old winning his fifth championship title, it has most defiantly been the best motorsport championship of the year.
