Goodwood Graphics

Here are just a few of the details that  caught my eye on Friday at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.  The event gathers pace over the weekend, when some of the current F1 stars will demonstrate 2011 machinery – but the essence, through it all, will remain:  wonderful people, wonderful cars…  

Lighting up the skies: Jim Clark’s 1965 Tasman-winning Lotus 32B-Climax

John Surtees re-united with a factory Lotus 18-Climax:  traces of Silverstone, 1960…

Sculpting a curve: GLTL Lotus 49B-Cosworth DFV

Cockpit detail: a Jim Clark Lotus Ford Cortina Mk1

The four-pedal 1968 Lotus 58-Cosworth FVA F2 car:  Jim Clark was keen to add left-foot-braking to his repertoire…

Air-cooled Dan:  1962 French GP-winning flat-8 Porsche

Denny’s CanAm trumpets

1970 Le Mans-winning Porsche Salzburg 917 (Richard Attwood-Hans Herrmann)

Pure Elegance: 1963 Indy Lotus 29-Ford

The blue and the green:  Henri Pescarolo and Matra brought vibrant new colour combos to F1/F2/F3/Prototypes

Caution:  Eagle about.  Dan’s 1967 Belgian GP winner is on this occasion driven by the indomitable Brian Redman

GLTL de-brief, 1969:  Graham Hill appraises an arriving ACBC; Eddie Dennis and Leo Wybrott tend the 49s

The same transporter, 2012:  such is the beauty of Goodwood…
