Goodwood Festival of Speed

 

 

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is held in the grounds of the home of the Earl of March. The track winds up the hill, past the magnificent Goodwood House. Racing cars of all eras, ranging from the 10 litre Fiats from the 1920s to present-day F1 cars, all compete against the clock. The paddock is open to the public and there are numerous opportunities to meet famous racing drivers and photograph the priceless cars in detail. Shown here are some pictures taken at the 2008 event.

Bristol Zagato GT 1960-1961

The BRISTOL ZAGATO GRAND TOURING MODEL is designed to cater for those who desire an even faster car than the standard type 406 saloon. The BRISTOL ZAGATO is lighter and smaller with a tuned version of the 406 Bristol engine.

One-Point-Five 1957-1965

The One-Point-Five was initially intended as the new Morris Minor, but it ended up as the Wolsely 1500 and the Riley 1.5

The engine in the Riley version gave 36 per cent more power than that of the Wolsely, but fewer were sold (39882 Rileys as opposed to 100744 Wolseleys).

Pathfinder 1953-1957

The pathfinder looked thoroughly modern: full-width bodywork with wide, one-piece windscreen.

The interior was roomy, with seats for 6. An unsual feature of this car is the position of the gearlever: on the floor, to the right of the driver.

RM Series 1945-1955

A high performance saloon with traditional looks, the car sported a twin-cam engine with hemispherical combustion chambers. The car had a timber-framed body and a fabric covered roof. Fully hydraulic brakes replaced the hydro-mechanical ones in 1952.

1952 Riley 1,5 litre

The 2.5 litre model looked identical to the 1.5 , but was 7 inches longer. Roadholding is said to be not quite as good as that of the 1.5 litre.
