The 2012 running of the Goodwood Festival of Speed featured hundreds of great cars, motorcycles, drivers and riders taking to the 1.16-mile Goodwood hillclimb during the Festival weekend. The record crowd of 185,000 spectators at this year’s event were treated to many exceptional sights and moments.
Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012 highlights included the homage to Lotus, in the form of a massive sculpture outside Goodwood House, plus a great selection of more than 40 significant racing examples of the marque taking to the Festival hillclimb.
Choosing our Top 20 “Cars of Interest” among the hundreds of spectacular entrants is a difficult task, but we gave it our best effort. Lotus was the featured marque at the Festival of Speed, as the British company celebrates 60 years of innovation and motor sport success. Given the focus on Colin Chapman’s automobiles, we gave extra attention to the sporting Loti that powered up the hillclimb at Goodwood. We welcome your comments below if we missed your favorite.
