The Goodwood Festival of Speed 2010 featured more than 25 different classes, with hundreds of great cars, motorcycles, drivers and riders taking to the 1.16-mile Goodwood hillclimb during the Festival weekend. A record 176,000+ spectators were present, making this one of the largest public events of any description in the UK and Europe.
Goodwood Festival of Speed 2010 highlights included Sir Jackie Stewart driving the famous Indy 500-winning Lotus 38/1, which hadn’t turned a wheel in 45 years since Jim Clark drove it to an historic victory in 1965, not to mention Mike Skinner doing an impressive burn-out for the entire length of the Hill in his NASCAR Toyota Camry. Sunday at the Festival saw the fastest timed cars racing against the clock in an exciting timed run. Festival stalwart Roger Wills took fastest time of the weekend at the wheel of a Williams-Cosworth FW05, with strong competition coming from Anthony Reid in a Lola T163 and Johnny Milner in his Toyota Celica.
Choosing our Top 20 “Cars of Interest” among the hundreds of spectacular entrants is a difficult task, but we gave it our best efforts. Alfa Romeo was the featured marque at the Festival of Speed, as the Italian company celebrates 100 years of proud motoring heritage. Given the focus on the Italian car maker, we gave extra attention to the sporting Alfas that graced the hillclimb and lawns of Goodwood. We welcome your comments below if we missed your favorite.
