Goodwood Festival of Speed

About the Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Festival of Speed is the largest motoring event 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 event is a true gala of motor sport and all things automotive.

‘No other event combines such diverse and authentic cars and motorbikes with a star-studded line-up of drivers in one place.’

From current Formula 1 race cars and 200mph dream supercars to steam-powered carriages of the 19th Century, and from 3000bhp top fuel dragsters to vintage racing 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 Goodwood Festival of Speed is perfect for any petrolhead or classic car enthusiast.

The Festival pays homage to the most significant 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.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a fantastic place for companies to do business, to entertain and reward your clients and customers or just enjoy yourself as a group of friends.


There is simply nothing like it anywhere else in the world.


‘The Festival of Speed is one of the most successful events to have been invented in the last 50 years. A wonderful event, a wonderful day out… It’s a beautiful place to go’ – Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Group
