Goodwood Festival of Speed 28th June to 1st July 2012

Wow, I have just looked at the line up for this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.  One word AWESOME.

Now I am definitely not a Petrol Head, I enjoy the Formula One Grand Prix season but that’s as far as my motor racing knowledge goes, so when I started looking at the programme I assumed it wouldn’t be my thing.  But, I was very wrong.

Starting next Thursday (28th June 2012) through to Sunday (1st July) it is packed full of attractions, events and family fun.  The 2012 theme is ‘Young Gun – Born to Win’ which will be celebrating the drivers, riders, designers and engineers.

At the Festival you get to see world champions try to set the fastest time of the day on the famous hill climb that runs up the Goodwood Estate. Or why not see the World Rally Championship teams compete through the Forest on the demanding circuit.

Of course there are lots of fast cars, both modern and vintage, to see including supercars, dragster and rally cars. See 4×4’s performing at their limits on the off-road centre and check out the future of motoring in the FOS-Tech Pavilion.  Add to all of that dramatic air displays, family fun at the Junior Festival of Speed, exhibitions and interviews with stars all against the backdrop of the wonderful Goodwood House and Estate and you get some idea of what’s on offer.

There is so much to do it is well worth making a weekend of it!  Find out more about the Goodwood Festival of Speed Cottage Breaks.
