I Say: More Goodwood Goodness

The second day of the Festival that keeps on giving has drawn to a close. Autoblog actually has men on the estate, snapping photos and broadcasting them across the pond. The one that will probably be of most interest to us nostalgic lovers is the Mazda Cosmo 110S that was part of Cartier Style et Luxe, the Goodwood concours that literally translates to “You Can’t Afford These.” As far as we can tell, this is not part of the Mazda 40th Anniversary of the Rotary exhibit that is one of 800 plus anniversaries being celebrated this year at the Festival of Speed, which means that Japanese cars are finally being recognized in concours events!

Other birthdays include Brooklands Circuit’s 100th, the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy’s 100th (which gave Honda motorcycles much of their early fame), the Bugatti Royale’s 80th, 75 years of the Ford flathead V8, Monoposto’s 75th, 25 years of Group C racing, 50 years of Scalextric slot cars, 60 years for both Ferrari’s and Saab, and 70 years since Toyota Motor Corp’s founding (although an automobile division of Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, Ltd. in 1933).

Jalopnik has managed to dig up a Flickr pool of Goodwood photos that stretches back to previous years’ events too. Take a look. It is truly the most spectacular car party on Earth.
