The Goodwood Festival of Speed is an annual Hill Climb featuring historic motor racing vehicles held in the grounds of Goodwood House, West Sussex, England in late June or early July. The event is scheduled to avoid clashing with the Formula One season, enabling fans to see F1 race cars as well as cars and motorbikes from motor racing history climb the historic Goodwood hill. The hill climb is the Festival of Speed’s principal attraction. Each day, no fewer than 300 cars and motorcycles sprint their way up the iconic hill climb in an breathtaking display of performance including Lewis Hamilton in his Mercedes Petronus 2013 F1 W04 race car.
Lord March said, “Once again the Festival of Speed has produced a thrilling spectacle on the Hillclimb and delighted hundreds of thousands of visitors who have brought their enthusiasm for motorsport to Goodwood. Our event theme was ‘Addicted to Winning’ and with reams of guests that include seven Formula 1 world champions and some of the greatest drivers from NASCAR, rallying, sportscars and motorcycling, we’ve managed to gather more famous names from motorsport than ever before. And we were blessed with splendid weather all weekend too.”
