Goodwood Festival Of Speed

Goodwood Festival Of Speed

Sporting Event

‘Unique’ is an over-used word these days but one that accurately describes the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

There is simply nothing else on the planet to match it – the setting, the history, the passion and a formula for motor sport enjoyment that has captivated enthusiasts for more than two decades. No wonder this mix of high-speed drama and Sussex garden party ranks today as the world’s pre-eminent celebration of motor sport and automotive culture in all its forms.

The Festival of Speed is one of the world’s must-do motoring events, as much for the motor racing ‘royalty’ who attend as for the thousands of enthusiasts for whom this quintessentially British celebration is an unmissable part of summer.

No other motoring event attracts better cars or bigger names – and the unique Goodwood atmosphere ensures unparalleled access to both. It wouldn’t be the Festival of Speed if visitors weren’t able to get close to the cars and chat to the drivers. The Festival of Speed is where fans and their heroes meet, united in their passion for motor sport and man’s quest for ever greater speed.
