Goodwood Festival of Speed

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the hill climb and rally celebration, features as a theme "Flatout and Fearless: Racing on the Edge".  It is set to be one of the most action-packed events yet for motorsport fans, in particular motorbike enthusiasts, as MotoGP racing legend Valentino Rossi will make his debut at Goodwood for the first time, alongside Casey Stoner.  Bookings can still be made for the event 25-28 June.

Five of the top Formula One racing teams will be in attendance to showcase their latest championship race cars: Mercedes, Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren and Williams.  There will also be four LMP1 Le Mans Endurance prototype models from Audi, Nissan, Porsche and Toyota, along with a huge NASCAR display including legends Richard Petty and Kerry Earnhart.

Sir Stirling Moss (85) will once again be in attendance, celebrating the 60th anniversary of his landmark victory at Mille Miglia in 1955.  Seven of the historic Mercedes 300 SLR racers will also be brought along and will tackle the hill climb.   

There will be hill climb debuts from some of the latest new models including the Ford Focus RS, the Ford GT concept and Ferrari 488 GTB.  Alongside this will also be a McLaren P1 GTR, Ferrari FXXK and updated Bentley Continental GT.   https://grrc.goodwood.com/section/festival-of-speed
