Goodwood Festival of Speed 2009 – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Goodwood Festival of Speed took place last weekend at the Earl of March's home in West Sussex, England. Like every year, this event attracted throngs of auto fans from around the world, as well as celebrities (Jay Leno, Peter Fonda, Jesse James, etc.), manufacturers and motorsports teams.

The Hillclimb that takes place on 1.19 miles of Goodwood Estate's parkland roads served as the main attraction, and we've got plenty of shots of the action. Vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss (driven by Moss himself, no less), Bertone Mantide, a McLaren F1 GTR, Porsche 911 GT1, Pagoni Zonda Cinque R, Audi R15 TDI and a whole bunch of F1 cars can be seen attacking the hill. A few NASCAR race cars from various eras even jumped the puddle to attend. We've also got photo coverage of the Forest Rally Stage, as well as shots of the general atmosphere on the Earl of March's lawn over the weekend.

Check it all out in the gallery below, complete with descriptions to help you follow along.
