The best cars from this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed

This event is on our bucket list
by TopGear.com | Jul 5, 2017


Supercars, stars and quite a few spins, too: this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed was a cracker.

There was of course, the obligatory supercar shootout, a roster of astonishing metal—including the debut of the mad 691hp Porsche 911 GT2 RS—and more classic F1 machinery than you could possibly want this side of an F1 season.

Last year’s world champion Nico Rosberg was in attendance, as was the man who took his place for 2017, F1’s newest Finnish superhero Valtteri Bottas.

Then of course, there was drifting. Lots and lots and lots of drifting, along with a fair few trips into the hay bales—like Pat Doran’s unfortunate spin in a Ford RS200 Evo 2. Ouchy.

Oh, and Ferrari continued to celebrate its 70th anniversary by bringing a truckload of its most astonishing cars from the warehouse out to play. Bellissima, you might say.

We’ve rounded up some of the action here, so check them out and let us know what your particular highlight from the weekend was.
