Highlights From The 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is widely regarded as one of the largest annual car events in the world. It’s been taking place since 1993 and one of its main attractions is the famous hill climb. Each year, this event attracts over 100,000 car nuts form around the world and they get to see some of the most iconic, modern, and downright insane cars duke it out together on the same road. It’s one of the only events in the world where you’ll see a Ford Focus RS tear up the 1.16 mile-long hill climb and right after, a Koenigsegg One:1 will do the same.
Thankfully, there’s been lots of coverage from this year’s three day event. It’s hard to single out the best runs but are some of our personal favorite images/videos:
