Goodwood 2015

The dates have been announced for Goodwood’s annual motoring extravaganzas for 2015 in June and September of next year. 

The Festival of Speed, which celebrates the very best from the past and present of motoring and motor sport, will be held on 25-28 June 2015.  As usual, the event will open with the Moving Motor Show on Thursday 25 June.  The event will pay tribute to the 60th anniversary of two sensational victories; Sir Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson’s triumph on the 1955 Mille Miglia and the first post-war grand prix win for an all-British line-up: Tony Brooks in a Connaught at Syracuse.  Sports car legend Derek Bell will be honoured as 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the first of his five Le Mans 24-hour wins, which came behind the wheel of a Mirage-Ford.

The Goodwood Revival, firmly established as the world’s largest and most popular motor racing and vintage culture event, will take place 11-13 September, ensuring neither event will clash with the Formula 1 World Championship calendar.  The Revival will pay tribute to the legendary driver, engineer and racing car constructor, Bruce McLaren, with a special parade of vehicles associated with his career.

Revived this year the Members’ Meeting will be held on 21-22 March 2015.   www.goodwood.com
