Click above for high-res gallery from Goodwood

The Goodwood Festival of Speed wrapped up on Sunday after three days of pure motorsports Heaven. While we would have liked to have posted a gallery or two a day from the event, internet issues kept us from sharing anything else after firing off our initial couple of posts. To make up for it we have a few massive galleries of goodness from Goodwood planned. We start today with some highlights, but will try to show some of the special categories individually too in later posts. After all, it isn't really a race in the strictest sense of the word and the pics will keep you just as entertained now as if they come next week. So hopefully you'll appreciate what we have to offer and if it isn't your thing, feel free to move onto something else you like better.

For those who want to stick around you can expect to see coverage of everything from the Cartier Style et Luxe concours to the Airbus A380 flyover. We'll also include some shots of the people and sights from around the grounds of Lord March's estate. Although the racing is what brings people here, it is truly the ambiance that keeps them coming back year after year. The photos are captioned as much as possible for your convenience, but look for supercars, celebrity drivers, vintage racers, classic cars, movie cars, wild track action and much more. We hope you enjoy our expanded coverage of the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed as much as we enjoyed being there and sharing it with you.

      The Morgan Lifecar is unbelievably beautiful. Does it actually run?

      I just noticed this supposed festival of speed has a bunch of SUVs stuck onto that sculpture. Um. Okay. So is it a festival of speed or a festival of poser suburbanites who don't use signals?
        • 6 Years Ago
        The SUVs are 4X4 Land Rovers, and owe their heritage to the WWII General Purpose Utility Vehicle ('Jeep'). They've been around for 60 years, and have been "speeding" aid workers, missionaries, farmers and everyone else into the remote regions of the world where they would otherwise have been bogged down. It isn't Land Rover's fault if some of them end up as "Chelsea Tractors" doing the daily school run!

        It's Land Rover's 60th Anniversary, so maybe it is quite appropriate to put the best SUVs of the lot onto the sculpture

      Awesome pics Autoblog, so many beautiful cars, new, old, and very old. Really digging the Defender 60, the Morgans, the Aygo Crazy, and of course, the 500 Abarth and 8Cs. (I could go on, but as they say, a picture says a thousand words)
