Lord March, the Duke of Richmond, likes cars quite a lot and above all he knows exactly how to round up the biggest names in the business and the most exclusive manufacturers and invites them to his massive automotive garden party: the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is an event like no other. It’s an open-air exhibition, a motor show where car manufacturers present their latest models, as well as a competition shootout to become the fastest man up the hill. And did we mention the event also has its own rally stage?
The result is an eclectic collection of cars and drivers who make demonstration runs up a hill climb course in front of Goodwood house. The event attracts top-notch machinery from every possible level. In no other event on the planet do Formula D drift cars, WRC rally cars, Le Mans winning legends and iconic pre-war classics all share the same piece of tarmac. It might be the biggest show on four wheels the world has ever seen.
Seeing is believing, so enjoy the gallery below, which help conjure up the atmosphere.
