If you’re an adrenaline junkie thirsty for that next buzz of action, a petrol head with a passion for pistons, or a family looking for a fantastic way to kick off the summer months, then take a trip to West Sussex for the thrills and spills of the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
This huge three day event has just begun, featuring a phenomenal mix of cars, celebrities and motoring royalty, all within the stunning grounds of Goodwood House, West Sussex. Be warned: children may leave this event making unusual high-speed racing car noises and may request a Formula 1 car for Christmas – this is not just applicable to children and has been known to occur in full grown men!
The Goodwood Festival speed attracts a hugely diverse crowd of spectators, due to its equally diverse collection of supercars, dragsters, rally cars and 19th century carts and carriages. Each year, the festival pays homage to a different motoring theme – this year is titled “Racing Revolutions – Quantum leaps that shaped motor sport”, a theme that accurately reflects the tireless quest for perfection that these daredevils seek. Be prepared for a day like no other, and with a guest list as important as it is long (featuring names such as Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton) Goodwood is sure to delight everyone.
The Times describe this event as “The greatest show on earth!” so expect tickets to sell like hot cakes. For more information about this fantastic event, and for ticket prices and location details, visit http://www.goodwood.co.uk/motorsport/motorsport.aspx.
