Racer Harry laps up track day fun

Prince Harry revved up a charity date at Goodwood by racing round the famous West Sussex motor circuit in a series of classic and contemporary cars.

The royal is well-known to love a bit of fun had he certainly had fun on four wheels after being welcomed to a track day by Goodwood owner and keen petrolhead Lord March.

Harry donned a crash helmet and put four motors through their paces; a classic Aston Martin DB4, a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Jaguar F-Type and an Aston Martin V8 Vantage - before meeting injured servicemen who have been helped by the Royal Foundation Endeavour Fund.

He later sat in the cockpit of a Spitfire aircraft during a tour of the Boultbee Flying Academy at Goodwood Aerodrome.

Lord March said the Royal Foundation Endeavour Fund is setting up a range of exciting projects to help service personnel who suffer injuries. He said it was great to have the support of the Prince and also to welcome him to the track day.

Goodwood was once a Royal Air Force base so it has had close links with the military for 75 years, Lord March said.
