2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed

THE fossil-fuelled garden party that is the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed kicks off this weekend at the English estate of Lord March.

Cars ranging from Formula One open-wheelers to coachbuilt classics take it in turns over three days to run up the nine turns of the 1.9km hillclimb course.

Here's a selection of images from day one of the event, including a few Aussie favourites.
