1930 Bentley 4.5-litre Le Mans Racer

I photographed this 1930 Bentley 4.5-litre (supercharged) racing car at the the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2017.  This car would have thundered around the circuit at the Le Mans 24hr race.  It was amazing looking at the sheer size of the Bentley and a dashboard jam packed with instrumentation.  I wonder what Lewis Hamilton would make of the complexity of dashboard.  I was at the Goodwood Festival of Speed to support my client Caerbont Automotive Instruments who manufacture classic SMITHS gauges.  Several SMITHS gauges feature in the dashboard of the 1930 Bentley.
