The Goodwood Festival of Speed has come to its close for yet another year. This year featuring a line-up of everything from the usual supercars and classic racing cars to the future autonomous cars and Pikes Peak winning electric cars, it really was one of the most varied Goodwood FOS’ to date (read our full show review here).
In celebration of another fantastic Goodwood Festival of Speed (and with a certain longing to redo the weekend all over again), we’ve rounded up some of our favourite images taken by our Sytner photographer throughout the weekend. Were you there over the weekend? We’d love to see your images too - tag us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and we may just share them!
As we mentioned in the intro, this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed really was the most varied to date; if you’ve ever been to Goodwood FOS, you’ll already be familiar with the usual modern and classic racing cars as well as the supercar paddock that rounds up all of the latest and greatest from the world of desirable cars.
The difference this year was the addition of all things electric, hybrid and autonomous – in fact, Sunday culminated with the Pikes Peak winning, all-electric, VW I.D R taking the top spot in the hillclimb and smashing the Goodwood electric car record of 47.34s with a qualifying run of 43.05s. Sticking with the theme of ‘the future’ – the weekend also saw Roborace complete the very first full run of the legendary Goodwood hillclimb by a fully autonomous car (read more about the Robocar attempt here).
Aside from the futuristic concepts and racing cars that were genuinely fascinating to behold, it was great to see and hear so many old and new cars in one place. With everything from Group C Jaguars, modern DTM cars and even an extraordinarily rare Ferrari 250 GTO making their way up the hill, it was a truly amazing chance to “relive the good old days” … regardless of when you class those days to be.
