So over the weekend I was fortunate enough to be at Goodwood with Jalopnik. So whilst Mr Petrány is bringing you actual stories and things, Im just going to do a photodump of my personal highlights and favourites. So without further ado, here we go (the first ones you might have already seen, but read on, theres 150 here and most are brand new):
These were used during the Moving Motor Show on thursday, and members of the public were allowed to drive them. Sadly, I didnt realise this until it was fully booked.
M8F - Love me some Can Am, and Mclaren built their business model around being successful in Can Am. The year they stopped winning (Porsche 917 arrived, see lower down) they pulled out because they couldnt afford to do it without the prize money.
And the aforementioned Porsche that evicted Mclaren from Can Am. oh and a Martini liveried 917. Nice.
This was the quietest the statue was over the weekend. Thursday morning at about 8.15am. Dont say I dont work hard to bring you lovely lot pictures :)
Not a clue what this is, but I like it.
205 T16. Lovely.
FIA Appendix K Cobra, built in 2014 but to period regulations, so can be run in any FIA K races.
Mad Max on display. Yes please.
P1 in this lovely livery.
DBR1 and DBR2 in british racing green. lovely.
Jim Clarks Lotus Indy 500 car.
Hooray, Rothmans Porsches. Not sure how they got around the cigarette advertising regulations, but Rothmans found a way, and I for one am grateful.
SO. MANY. FERRARIS!
Ferrari but not in red. Not sure how I feel about this...
787s. Many 787s :)
The TWR Rover Vitesse, with some TWR tweaks to make it fall in the grey areas of the rules. Because TWR...
But still with wooden dash, because what are we? animals?
Hondas first foray into F1 with the RA272 ‘screamer’. I finished a model of this car a few weeks ago, so was really good to see it in real life.
Chrome polished driveshafts are just pure engineering porn.
This era of F1 drivers take bravery to a whole new level. Their ankles form the entire crumple zone...
Alpine were there celebrating 60 years of making quirky french cars, with their Le Mans winning A442.
Fangios actual Maserati 250f.
The Darracq 200bhp, which beat a GT40 in the timed runs. Pretty sure the driver defines Maximum Attack.
Babs, a landspeed record (full disclosure, the only reason I put this picture in is its a car called Babs, and thats just wonderful)
The Alfa TZ2. This has to be one of the prettiest cars of the whole weekend.
And the Beast of Turin. Not much more I can say about this that hasn’t been said, but this was definitely a huge crowd pleaser.
The Gobstopper (2) in its 800ish BHP bewinged glory.
Mantheys 2011 Nurburgring 24h winning car, driven by the mans whose name is over the door, Olaf.
Classic F1 cars were well represented at the FOS too.
Their simplicity makes them some of the prettiest F1 cars I can think of.
Prost and Sennas Mclarens were brought out to play, Mclaren embracing its Honda heritage.
Such a clean simple dash.
Iconic names, iconic cars.
Period correct GoPros. oh, wait...
Yep, iconic names.
Kimis F12 was sporting some battle scars.
Sir Stirling Moss was running up the hill in his Millia millia winning 722 Mercedes SLR. Joined by some huge names, Sir Jackie Stewart and Jochen Mass to name a few.
956 waving as it joined the que.
Emaneule Pirro was loving his 908k, although i did overhear him asking Andre Lotterer if he fancied swapping.
Mad Mikes RX7 is mad. He got a telling off for doing a donut in the assembly area to park the car, but I doubt he cares, a true crowd pleaser.
All forms of motorsport are represented, even Dakar trucks.
787s (notice the missing 767b, I missed the moment of impact just because I was thinking no dont crash it, please dont crash it but the rest of the shots worked well)
Sennas Toleman, part of the fearless but flat broke category.
You can get very close to the cars at Goodwood.
Not just road cars at the FOS, oh no, Rally cars have their own dedicated stage at the top of the hill.
Proper rally Minis. Being driven as mother nature (well, Mini) intended
And Imprezas in their proper livery. There was no hanging about with these guys on the stage too, they were really going for it.
Delta Integrale. :D
And a SWB Quattro, Yes please.
I may be biased (Focus owner) but the Martini livery even makes the Focus look good.
Kris Meeke was at the FOS, and was not hanging about on the stage. He eventually beat the stage record set by Sebastian Loeb but that didnt stop him from pounding round the stage for 2 days at full speed.
Subaru in its natural habitat.
This Ferrari 308 came with its own Skis, of course. Sounded glorious in the woods too.
Escorts were well represented, as they are in pretty much every UK rally event.
RWD Tablot was almost always on the lockstops with a handful of oversteer.
This R5 DS3 was pressing on, hence fairly hot brakes.
Lancia 037b. There was rumored to be one in Martini colours around, but I never saw it :(
This little FWD Lancia Fulvia (I think) was out on the stage more than pretty much any other car.
Rally RS200 :D
One of my favourite shots of the whole weekend, this Quattro emerging through the woods.
Nissan brought out a selection of classic rally cars to play too.
Mark 2 Escort making lots of dust. I still have to clean out my camera from a morning on the stage, because every car was kicking up SO MUCH DUST!
Big Healy, driven in period by Sir Stirling Moss’ sister.
Kris Meeke on maximum attack as always. The car control of the WRC boys never ceases to amaze me
Castrol liveried Toyota rally car. Oh I hope they bring this back when they rejoin the WRC.
More Quattro goodness.
And more Castrol goodness for that matter.
Martini Porsche Rally car. Tell me whats bad about that sentence.
The mighty Focus.
This little Seat touring car was one of the fastest things up the hill. Shows how far technology has come on.
Its not a demo run for some guys, and more than one got bitten by Molecombe.
Mike Conway and the tiny TS040. Seriously, LMP1s are much smaller in person, its really odd.
Gulf Liveried 917k and 908k. And I had to sit down for a few minute after these two.
The noise of this V12 Broadspeed Jag was Epic.
The F1 GTR Longtail has some stunning little details to it.
And a line up of Mazda Rotaries. The noise when this lot started was mad.
NSFW Upskirt Shot.
During one of the handful of redflags, the marshalls eased up on where photographers were allowed, hence standing in the middle of the tyre warming area.
First time I have seen a Singer 911, and these are some seriously perfect Porsches.
Chris Harris took this up the hill during the supercar shootout, though it was shared by various people over the weekend.
I want 1...
La FCKKUKKFUCKKKCCUKKKFF or whatever this is called. Names arent important when your this fast, this loud, and this awesome.
P1 GTR completing the set of Mclarens racing history, and future.
What an absolute weapon.
Mr Glickenhaus was there, with his SCG003 and his P4/5 (in the concours area). I love that this is the exact car from the N24.
Complete with numberplates.
Everything about Konigsegg is mad, even the door hinges.
And the Pagani Huayra (sp?) I still think of them as a new supercar company even though they have been round for at least 15 years now.
No No NO NO NO NO!
Not satisfied with having the best show on the ground, Lord March called his RAF buddies who brought the Eurofighter Typhoon and the Red Arrows out to play.
Imagine what it must be like with 35 of these on the Mountain at Bathurst. This thing is EVIL!
Low and wide, this Ferrari was absolutely flat out during the top 45 runs on Sunday.
The Mclaren being driven as Bruce would have wanted.
The Gosbstopper during its Qualy Runs, with enough aero to clean the track of all dust
The Miijet Mini joining in with the hatchbacks with insane aero category.
Al Buncombe doesnt really have any other speed that flat out.
S4 is just as bonkers as it looks.
More Madbull fun.
and the Hoonicorn. The donuts this thing does are ridiculous, pretty much in its own length.
And every detail has been considered in it.
Tyres with some tread. Please note, this was first thing sunday morning, before any of that days runs.
S1 Quattro, sadly not getting muddy but still awesome
The Kings Superbird. Almost all the other drivers were getting photos with him.
Mad Mike doing what Mad Mike does.
Lord March doesn’t like his grass being messed up. I presume this driver was uninvited to the champagne ball after this cut.
The Nascar boys sure can make some smoke.
The gangs back together.
This thing is comically large. You cant come close to seeing over it (and I’m 6’2)
Such a pretty car.
Stadium Supertruck was enjoying waving through the corners.
Please note, this came through about 4 cars after the Stadium truck. Only at Goodwood.
BJ Baldwins massive Baja truck.
Fords new Homologation Special GT350. Built purely so they can go and play in CTSCC.
The SLR has an interesting pedal position, with legs wide apart to house the transmission.
100 internet points to anyone who can name every rider here. I can manage 3.
and only 1 of these guys.
Lord March was rather pleased to have got this group of riders together.
Papaya Orange is perfection.
Derek Bell ran this up the hill sunday morning. I do love a yellow Ferrari.
BMWs GT2 M3 from Le Mans.
Just an R90k idly sitting around waiting to be loaded.
Sir John Surtees (I know he’s not a Knight, but he damn well should be, so I’m just calling him it now). Such a gentleman, saw me taking the photo so turned and smiled.
The Audi Boys admiring their cars.
This colour scheme is one of so many wonderful and iconic liveries on display.
Rossi had an awesome sunday, going up the hill on his bike, then 787b, then the S4, and finally this. Not a bad weekend SPOILER ALERT: (he won the Moto GP on saturday too)
Darracq on maximum attack as always.
Who doesn’t love the 405 T16. Excuse me whilst I go watch Climb Dance.
To those of you who made it this far, thank you :) and thanks to Oppo. Its because of this community that I got the opportunity to join Jalopnik for this event, and with you guys making me want to take better pictures and just capture more of an event, has lead me to this. So yeah, thanks all you guys. Heres to many more weekends photographing cars.
