Glorious sunshine, an eclectic mix of machinery and a 1.16-mile driveway upon which all manner of automotive delights entertained crowds of sunburnt, petrol-obsessed fanatics. These were the scenes that greeted anyone with a ticket to this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Despite boasting a penchant for knackered old automobiles with poor reliability records (but bags of character), I’ve never actually witnessed the festival for myself – having to make do with an Instagram feed that is full to the brim with the FoS hashtag in previous years.

That all changed this year, when the Flat-Out crew embarked on mammoth drive up from the South West to hang with the guys from Bentley and celebrate its centenary year with a debut of the new Flying Spur and plenty of classic eye-candy.

Jaguar Land Rover opened the show with a disguised Defender and the awesome Volkswagen ID.R unofficially broke the record for fastest time up the hill – all without emitting a sound or nasty pollutants from an exhaust pipe.

Here’s a selection of shots curated from the weekend. Have a scroll through and if you recognise yourself or your set of wheels, please get in touch.
