Goodwood has paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during the 2012 Festival of Speed with a special Diamond Jubilee display honouring her 60-year reign. For the first time ever, the Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ concours had just one subject, with royal vehicles ranging from stately saloons to an aeroplane via a train, a caravan and even a half-scale American Midget Racer starring on the Cartier lawn. The judging committee consisted of the likes of the Queen’s nephew Lord Linley, AC/DC frontman and racer Brian Johnson, fashion accessories magnate Anya Hindmarch and actor Rupert Penry-Jones.
This year, the overall winner was HRH The Prince of Wales’ Aston Martin DB6 MkII Volante, while the sublime Chapron-bodied Citroen SM Cabriolet emerged on top in the Overseas’ Engagements class. The Duke of Edinburgh’s 1961 Alvis TD21 DHC SII claimed the Regal Runabouts category.
