Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Goodwood Festival of Speed was founded back in 1993, although Goodwood's racing roots go back to the 1930's, by the Earl of March who was keen to bring motor racing back to the historic Goodwood estate. Since then it has evolved in to the largest motoring garden party in the world!

In what has become a unique summer motor racing weekend there is a wonderful mix of cars, stars and the motor racing elite that celebrates the world of motor sport.

For motor sport enthusiasts, affectionately known as Petrol Heads, it has everything you could possibly want from the fastest supercars and Formula One cars to dragsters and classic rally cars.

The Hillclimb is the main attraction where 300 cars each day take on the 1.16 mile challenging course through the Goodwood estate encountering tree lined roads, flint walls, woodland groves and climbing up 300 foot to the South Downs. You can stand on the route within feet of the fastest cars and motorcycles taking on this white knuckle ride.

The Supercar Run takes places regularly over the weekend with the hottest and coolest supercars appearing on the Hillclimb. However it's not just motor cars, Motorcycle Mania see some of the world's best machines and riders take on the Hill too.

The Forest Rally Stage was designed with help from World Rally Champion Hannu Mikkola is a challenging 1.67 mile loose surface track which enables you to fully appreciate the skills of the 50 or so drivers from many vantage points throughout the Forest.

If all of that is not enough there is so much more going on including:

  • Interview Stage - hear from top drivers past and present, go autograph hunting too!
  • Exhibition area - see top motor manufacturers spectacular displays on over 200 stands
  • Off Road Activity - check out some high speed driving demonstrations pushing 4x4's to their limits
  • FOS-Tech Pavilion demonstrating the future of motor with concepts cars
  • Motor inspired Art and Sculptures Exhibitions
  • Air Displays. Breathtaking displays from a huge range of aircraft, old and new - the RAF Red Arrows have made regular appearance through the years.
  • Junior Festival of Speed. The Festival is not just for adults! It is a great day out for young and old and the dedicated Junior Festival of Speed is packed with activities for younger visitors including The Wacky Races, fun art Workshops and more
