There is no sports car I’m more excited about this year than the Alpine A110. Sure, you might have to suspend normal expectations – it’ll ask big money for its small power output. But finally, today, I saw it alongside other sports cars rather than under motor show lights – and it is brilliantly, wonderfully teeny. What a potential gem.
Jimi Beckwith - London Taxi Company electric cab
My star car isn't hugely spectacular, expensive or even quick. It's not a supercar and will be anything but exclusive when it goes on sale. But the way the new LTC electric London cab wafted off the line when embarking on the hillclimb was deafening in its silence, where its forebears would have chugged away, leaving fumes in their wake.
Spectacularly unspectacular, the cab's not the usual Goodwood fodder - but it is an intriguing insight into the black cab's future, and another reason why Goodwood is the UK's motor show.
Rachel Burgess - for the love of cars
Largely because I’m a lucky motoring journalist who often only shares motor shows with other media, this year’s Goodwood was a reminder of how many people love cars in all shapes and guises. This young boy (captured poorly by moi) was reading the Lamborghini Aventador S spec panel intently for some time. Meanwhile, over at the Cartier lawn, two teenage boys were discussing their favourite Ferrari 250s, and at the Ford stand, a woman was sitting in the Edge discussing its merits with her partner. The cost of Goodwood tickets certainly don’t make this event for the everyman but, nonetheless, it’s a glorious celebration of the entire automotive world, not just the million-dollar cars going up the hill.
Sam Sheehan - fan love
Goodwood is as much about the drivers as it is the cars. No better example of that came with Robert Kubica, who was greeted by dozens of cheering and applauding fans when returning to the Renault Sport awning in the E20 2013 Formula 1 car he drove.
As soon as he’d hopped out of the car he walked straight to them, shaking hands and posing for selfies. Top, top man.
