Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014, Be there

In Goodwood by Jonathan Humphrey

Tickets remain available for the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, but going quickly, this years event is on the 26-29 June.


While weekend and Saturday General Admission tickets now sold out, there are still plenty of opportunities to see some of the biggest stars and most iconic machines from the past and present of motor sport and motoring on both the Friday and Sunday of the event.

Friday will give visitors a first opportunity to see machinery from five contemporary front-running Formula 1 teams – including Mercedes, McLaren and Red Bull – in action on Goodwood’s iconic 1.16-mile Hillclimb, while the must-see Bonhams’ fine automobile auction takes place as well.

Sunday hosts the Festival of Speed’s traditional show-stopping finale, in which the fastest cars of the weekend will make one flat-out afternoon attempt each against the clock to take home the honour of the quickest time of the event.

Each day features exhilarating stunts from X Games heroes – including Petr Pilat, Kye Forte and Edgar Torronteras – in the Goodwood Action Sports Arena, sideways action on the Skoda Forest Rally Stage and some stunning displays of aerobatic prowess with appearances by the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet.
