Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012: Highlights from the paddock
Lotus was the featured marque at Goodwood 2012, and the theme of the Festival of Speed sculpture
While there was certainly plenty of action on the track at last weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed, that was far from the only automotive eye-candy at hand. Attractions off the tarmac included a display of Alain Prost's Formula 1 drives, a beautiful collection of luxury automobiles celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, exhibitions from almost every major auto manufacturer, action sports demonstrations, rally cars, motorcycles, racers from yesteryear ... and of course, a smorgasbord of supercars.
Here's a selection of our favorite snaps from the grounds of Goodwood Estate at the 2012 Festival of Speed ... and there's plenty more to browse through in the gallery.
