Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016

The annual motoring spectacular kicked off in style for 2016 with the theme ‘Full Throttle: The Endless Pursuit of Power’, and it didn’t disappoint.

The wealth of competition machinery included seven current Formula 1 teams with their Works drivers at the wheel, including multiple-Grand Prix winner Nico Rosberg at full throttle in his Mercedes-Benz F1 W05 Hybrid, as well as a number of previous Grand Prix World Champions, such as Jackie Stewart, Jenson Button and Emerson Fittipaldi.

A parade of ex-F1 World Champion James Hunt’s competition cars, including his iconic Hesketh-Cosworth and McLaren-Cosworth M23 Grand Prix cars, was highly appreciated by the enthusiastic spectators, as was the ear-splitting Chevrolet V8-engined Widowmaker drag bike.

Here are a few pictures taken in the paddock and also at the McLaren stand.
