2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed report and 400-shot gallery ...

This weekend, we were at the 25th annual Goodwood Festival of Speed. Since its humble beginnings in 1993, the event has quickly grown as one of the largest automotive events in the world, attracting entrants and spectators from all corners of the globe. Among the many themes and celebrations this year was Ferrari's 70th anniversary, 50 years of the Cosworth DFV and Lotus 49, Williams 40th anniversary and the 20th anniversary of Tom Kristensen's first of nine Le Mans wins. Taking centre stage on the striking Gerry Judah structure was the career of Bernie Ecclestone in Formula 1 that spanned five decades. He made his very first appearance at the Festival of Speed while his successor Chase Carrey also joined in the fun and took a ride in the fire-breathing Fiat S.76 up the hill. In addition to the action on the track, the event also boasted the Cartier Style et Luxe Concours d'Elegance with a particularly strong entry and a Bonhams auction that grossed around GBP 10 million.
We were at the Goodwood House throughout the weekend and reckon it was one of the very best editions of the Festival of Speed to date. You can find out why in more detail by reading our concise report, which is illustrated by a 360-shot gallery of the event itself and a 40-shot gallery from the auction.
