Goodwood Festival of Speed

Held in the grounds of the historic Goodwood House, West Sussex, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has been an annual event in the car calendar since 1993. One of the main aspects that sets the Goodwood Festival of Speed apart from almost any other motoring event on the calendar is the close proximity car enthusiasts can get to some truly awesome motoring machines. Whether you want to walk the paddock to view rare and powerful cars and meet some famous faces, or prefer being a bale of hay away from the action, this is the event for you.
