The 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed has ended, having been going strong since Thursday morning in the grounds of Goodwood House in West Sussex. As well as the great and the good of the racing car and motorcycle community competing on the famous 1.16-mile hillclimb in many of the best-known and well-loved competition cars and bikes on the planet, the spectacle also included some of the finest classic cars ever made parked on static display.

As well as the history of motorsport in one place, the action on the final day included the shootout for fastest time up the hillclimb.

The 2018 Festival of Speed celebrated the event’s 25th anniversary: the inaugural event, held in June 1993, redefined what a car show could be, and since then has established itself as one of the United Kingdom's greatest celebrations of motorsport and car culture.

The myriad highlights – and the cars and drivers that created them – were cornerstones of this year’s event, alongside the usual gathering of extraordinary vehicles from the dawn of motoring to the present.

Here we present highlights packages from the Goodwood hillclimb and elsewhere on the estate – including the climax as the leading cars and drivers aimed for the fastest time of the event.
