New at Goodwood this year, the day before the Festival of Speed is a dedicated Manufacturer Day – being dubbed the ‘Moving Motor Show’ and being held within the spectacular grounds of Goodwood Park.
The exclusive format of the show is an important addition to the Festival of Speed, enabling a limited number of lucky motoring enthusiasts and new car buyers to see the very latest models for the first time in the UK.
During this day, new car buyers and enthusiasts will be able to enjoy an exclusive motor show preview day, where they will not only be able to see the very latest new car models on display in a dedicated covered exhibition area, but in some cases also climb aboard and experience the vehicles first-hand, strictly at the invitation of the attending manufacturers. The cars will undertake hundreds of runs on a special near-four mile evaluation route that includes the world famous Goodwood hillclimb, fully dressed and prepared for the Festival of Speed, which kicks off the following day. During the three days of the Festival itself, each of the Moving Motor Show exhibits will remain on static display for all Goodwood visitors to see and admire.
The Sunday Times Supercar Run is unique in providing a dynamic environment in which the public can view new models for the first time. Unlike a conventional motor show, the Supercar Run affords a fantastic opportunity not only to exhibit a new supercar, but also to show it in action on the Goodwood hillclimb during the Festival of Speed. This year 50 cars will participate in the Run, many of which have never been seen publically in action before, including the public world debut of the much-anticipated McLaren MP4-12C. Other supercars set to make their UK debuts include Zagato’s striking Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa, the Ferrari 458 Italia, Spyker C-8 Aileron and Veritas RS III.
Away from the Supercar Run, the FoS-TECH technology pavilion showcases a variety of exciting future-focused automotive technologies. Rarely-seen concepts being displayed in this year’s FoS-TECH include the Audi e-Tron, Citroen ReVolte, Rinspeed UC, Lexus CT200h and Vauxhall Ampera.
