Last week we spent the day at Goodwood Festival of Speed, near Chichester, enjoying the morning of rain and afternoon of brilliant sunshine. We shot photography of the hill climb practice, paddocks and exhibitions. A major highlight was the display of Lotus cars in front of the house, including the massive sculpture by Gerry Judah. You can see more of the photos on Flickr.
Alongside this central theme, the 2012 Festival celebrated the past, present and future achievements of Lotus as this pioneering British race and sports car manufacturer marks a number of important anniversaries in 2012. Inspired by the incomparable Colin Chapman, this small British company utilised unparalleled technical ingenuity to dominate all levels of motor sport, from club racing to Formula 1, creating a glorious and enduring legacy. A spectacular collection of winning Lotus cars, from F1, Indycars, saloons and sports cars, were a key attraction at this year’s Festival.
