Between covering auctions, events, rallies and vintage races, in addition to profiling and reviewing modern and classic cars, collections, historic races and more, 2012 was, thankfully, an increasingly busy year at Sports Car Digest. The grand total of stories published during the year came to nearly 550, an average of more than ten per week and growing the archives to nearly 2,800 articles.
And how could we call ourselves car enthusiasts if we didn’t obsess over numerical statistics and analyses? A mere tally of stories published wasn’t the only thing we were keeping our eye on, we also kept track of the stories and galleries that were getting the most views, too, and compiled the most popular here. Leading the way in page views for 2012 was the Goodwood Festival of Speed, followed by the vast photo galleries from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and the Le Mans Classic. Just as in 2009, 2010 and 2011, nearly all of the top stories included extensive photo galleries, which accounted for a majority of the page views.
So without further ado, enjoy the year in retrospect with our Top 10 Most Popular Stories of 2012.
