Photo Gallery – 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed – On the hill

In the final of our three 2016 Festival of Speed galleries, we’ve covered the all-important action of cars tackling the hillclimb course. Don’t forget to check out our two previous galleries – the first covering the best bits from the race car paddocks, and the second made up of new road cars on show. Road cars on…

Photo Gallery – 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed – Motor Show

Ok, officially Thursday is the Moving Motor Show at the Festival of Speed. But, there are so many elaborate manufacturer stands there, that the entire weekend has become the de facto British motor show.  We featured part one – our highlights from the race car paddocks – yesterday. In this section we’ve also included the road cars…

Photo Gallery – 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed – Paddock Action

Despite weather that threatened to make Goodwood seem more like Glastonbury at times, the 2016 Festival of Speed proved to be as impressive as ever. ESM was there, for two days this time, getting up close and personal with as much of the machinery as possible. We could write 1,000s of words but, instead, we’ll give you…

2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed – Gallery Three

After parts one and two of our 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed gallery bonanza, comes this final one. It sometimes seems hard to believe that car manufacturers have for a number of years expressed no real interest in a real British motor show, yet are willing to have huge stands like the ones seen at Goodwood….

2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed – The Racers Gallery

Whilst the Festival of Speed has grown to become the de facto British motor show, it’s still all about the epic racing cars that tackle the hill climb course. Our second 2015 gallery features some of the exotic and expensive machinery found in the paddock.

2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed – Moving Motor Show Gallery

ESM has been to the Goodwood Festival of Speed before – the last time back in 2012 – but this year was a little different.  It started with a letter from the Earl of March inviting ESM to the Festival of Speed as a fully fledged member of the media. It ended with driving almost 700 miles…

Friday Photo – Six Retro Themed Toyota GT86 for Goodwood

We like the Toyota GT86. We also like retro-racer inspired liveries. So a bundle of six GT86s finished in classic Toyota racing colour schemes sounds like a pretty good deal to us! Celebrating some 50 years of Toyota motorsport heritage, the six models have been vinyl-wrapped, lowered by 40mm, had stainless steel exhausts fitted and Rota…

Friday Photo – 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed

EngageSportMode wasn’t at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, instead spending last weekend at Croft Circuit for the British Touring Car Championship. But that doesn’t mean we can’t bring you photo highlights from Goodwood. We promise there’s no flamboyant trousers or Red Arrows content contained within. Drawing in over 200,000 spectators across the four days, this…

News and photos – Jaguar F-Type Project 7

At last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, Jaguar showed off a lightweight concept version of the F-Type Roadster. Public response was so good that they’ve decided to build it as a limited edition to showcase JLR’s new Special Operations team. Enter the fastest and most powerful production Jaguar. The overarching aim of the car is to…

New Ford Focus ST to debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

You know it, we love the Ford Focus ST here at EngageSportMode. So much so that we awarded the ST Mountune Estate the prestigious ESM ‘best car driven in 2013‘ prize earlier this year. So news of a new one has got us understandably excited. Excited, and in suspense, as so far Ford is keeping tight-lipped…
