It’s the first day of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed and Michael Neeves, Senior Road Tester is there, here’s his first impression.

'I’m at the magnificent Goodwood Festival of Speed amongst the best collection of bikes I have ever seen at this event. I’ve spotted Eddie Lawson’s YZR500, Aaron Slight’s RVF750, Tom Sykes’ ZX-10R, Sam Lowes’ CBR600RR and Steve Hislop’s factory Ducati to name but a few.

I have just done my first run up the famous hill climb on my BMW Park Lane S1000RR and this afternoon I will be riding Jonny Rea’s factory Castrol Honda Fireblade.

The weather, atmosphere and machinery on display is as incredible as ever. It’s definitely a place that every petrol-head should visit once in their life.’
