What's The Festival of Speed about?
12 - 14 July 2013
The Festival of Speed is the largest motoring garden party in the world – a unique summer weekend that brings together an impossibly heady mix of cars, stars and motor sport ‘royalty’ to create the largest car culture event in the world. Held in the immaculate grounds of Goodwood House, this annual Hillclimb event is a true celebration of motor sport and all things automotive.
The 2013 Festival of Speed Theme
The 2013 Festival of Speed theme will celebrate the best of the first 20 years of this, the world’s most popular motor sport and car culture event. Goodwood will focus on highlights from the Festival’s glittering history, featuring the biggest, best, fastest, loudest and most outrageous vehicles of all time.
Goodwood will recapture many of the outstanding Festival of Speed moments from the 1993-2012 era, whether that’s great cars from around the world making a rare return to the UK; or famous car/driver pairings reunited, for a weekend not to be missed.
Petrol Head Nirvana...
'No other event combines such a diverse collection of cars & motorbikes with a star-studded line-up of drivers in one place.'
From current Formula 1 racers and 200mph supercars to steam-powered carriages of the 19th Century, and from 3000bhp top fuel dragsters to classic rally cars, the Festival of Speed attracts the heroic and the evocative from every era in an exuberant display of style, sound, smell and colour.
The Festival pays homage to the most significant and salient cars in the history of international motor sport, with entry by personal invitation from Lord March.
All cars and motorcycles are painstakingly selected to reflect the event’s major theme of the year, and to ensure their authenticity and provenance, all competing vehicles are presented in their original condition and livery.
