This year's Goodwood Festival of Speed marked a number of key anniversaries: the Porsche 911's 50th, McLaren's 50th, Lamborghini's 50th, the WRC's 40th, Le Mans' 90th, and, of course, the 20th anniversary of the Festival of Speed itself.
All these were marked with static displays and runs up Goodwood's hillclimb, or at its expanded rally stage. And in the extra-special case of the Porsche 911, centre stage on Goodwood House's front lawn with a dramatic sculpture.
The 20th anniversary Festival of Speed had one of the best-ever displays of contemporary supercars in the Michelin Supercar Run, which included a record amount of debuts on UK soil.
Heading the bill at the Supercar Run was the world dynamic debut of the McLaren P1. Also taking part was the P1's rival from Stuttgart, the Porsche 918 Spyder, and its rival that never was, the Jaguar C-X75.
There were notable first dynamic looks at Eric Clapton's Ferrari SP12 EC, the Rolls-Royce Wraith and Alfa Romeo 4C, while concept cars like the Giugiaro Parcour, Peugeot Onyx, Jaguar Project 7, Renault Twin'Run and Volkswagen XL1 were also brought to life.
Elsewhere at the Festival of Speed was a celebration of land-speed-record cars, the usual array of pioneering early race cars, touring car icons, some great American racers, and grand prix cars throughout the ages right up to the present day.
Soapbox racing, one of the most popular parts of the Goodwood Festival of Speed between 2000 and 2004, also returned with demonstration runs in some of the competition's favourite past entrants.
The usual array of rare and exotic metal could be found over on the lawn at the Cartier Style et Luxe concours. This year's entrants included 1960s style icons from Aston Martin and Ferrari, elegant pre-war classics, GTs from the 1950s, some of the most iconic Porsche 911s, and some rarely seen concept cars from motor shows gone by.
