What to expect at The Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place at Goodwood Estate and is motorsport’s ultimate summer garden party. It is billed as an intoxicating celebration of the world’s most glamorous sport. You can get close to the cars and bikes as they blast up the Hillclimb track. There is unrestricted access to the machines and the drivers who made them famous.

The festival includes a number of displays using a playground of jumps where pedal and petrol powered skills will be showcased in front of packed audiences. Meanwhile the Sky Sports F1 Paddock is the place to be if you want to get within inches of the latest F1 cars from the top teams around the world.
