We awoke on Friday morning, perched on a mountainside at roughly 9,000ft of altitude. For me and Jim Bob, it was technically the start of Day 3, but for most of the gang, the trip was just beginning.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the digital work of Khyzyl Saleem, the artist that has made an incredible name for himself by creating out-of-this-world digital automotive renderings for the last number of years.

Imagine yourself in grade school: you’re in your chair, and your desk it attached, and perhaps your feet are stuffed into the basket under your seat. You hear the creaking squeaking from down the hall, and then through the door comes a substitute teacher.

If one set wasn’t enough, we’ve got good news: We’re back with Part II of our look back at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 with 35 more photos of classic racers at their best. Peter Aylward’s stylized imagery captures the essence of the event and the cars that comprise it, leaving us yearning yet again for the chance to attend the event ourselves. With 2019’s event upon us in just a month, we’ve got to rule it out. Maybe 2020 is our year? Fingers crossed.
