The Goodwood Festival of Speed should be on every gearhead’s bucket list. Whatever you have to do to get there, do it. Beg, borrow, stow away on an ocean liner. Get there.

Motor Authority was fortunate enough to attend this year’s event, and though it was only for a few brief hours, we managed to collect a bounty of photos of some fantastic machines, vintage and modern, race and street.

Some of the highlights from the new-car side of the aisle include the refreshed Ford Focus ST, the updated Mercedes-Benz CLS, the GT-R-powered Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge, the Lexus RC-F, and the new Ford Mustang.

Given a whole weekend at the the event, we can only imagine all we’d see. If you’re thinking about getting in on next year’s Festival of Speed, you’d better hurry—Saturday tickets are already sold out, but Friday and Sunday may still be available.

If not, start making plans for 2016—today. Your future self will thank you.
