Goodwood Festival of Speed 2024 - Saturday

The Goodwood Festival of Speed occurs each year as a motorsports festival showcasing a diverse array of contemporary and vintage racing vehicles. The world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture returns for a glorious long weekend with over 210,000 visitors making their way to Goodwood House. Held in the beautiful parkland surrounding Goodwood House, the Festival of Speed is motorsport’s ultimate summer garden party and involves a challenging hill climb and various other activities.

In 1993, the inception of the Goodwood Festival of Speed can be attributed to Lord March, later known as the Duke of Richmond, with the primary aim of reintroducing motor racing to the Goodwood estate. This location held a significant place in the history of British motor racing. Upon acquiring the estate in the early 1990s, Lord March was eager to revive motor racing activities at the Goodwood Circuit. However, due to the absence of the requisite permit for holding races at the circuit, he opted to organise the festival on his own estate grounds.

The festival is strategically planned not to coincide with the Formula One season, ensuring that enthusiasts have the opportunity to witness both Formula One cars and vehicles from the rich history of motor racing tackling the hill climb. Over four days guests are treated to an overwhelming mix of fast cars, legendary drivers and all-encompassing pursuit of speed. Enjoy getting close to the cars and bikes as they blast up the Hillclimb track; nowhere else will you enjoy such unrestricted access to the machines and the drivers who made them famous.
