Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011

  1. Missed the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend? No matter - some of TopGear.com spent the weekend at possibly the best garden party in the world, and we’ve put together some of our pictorial highlights for you all.

    This isn’t all we brought home - we’ll also be bringing you a selection of reports and videos from the event, including a ride with Bruno Senna in a Lotus Evora, smashing through the forest stage with Kris Meeke and his 2011 Mini WRC car, and a dream come true for motoring editor: a drive up the hill in the glorious Jaguar D-Type. Stay tuned…
