The Library Lawn
As the name suggests, The Library Lawn is a more secluded area where you will be looked after in a marquee on the private lawn of Goodwood House. Here you can enjoy some privacy away from the track itself. For those who cannot take their eyes off the cars, you will have reserved seats in the VIP grandstand at Crossroads corner and a roving Grandstand ticket. This exclusive area is perfect for smaller groups to entertain less formally.
The GP Club
New for 2015, The GP Club is located trackside and opposite the Formula One Paddock. This exciting facility is elevated to give the best view possible of the action, with a wrap around balcony so that guests can enjoy both trackside and unique paddock facing views. The Pit Lane for the F1 cars will also be located between the hospitality and the paddocks so that you will get front row seats to watch the cars as they come in and out of the paddocks. Mingle with legends of racing and enjoy superb food in the informal atmosphere of this exclusive hospitality facility. With informal dining and private tables of between two and ten, this experience includes a motorsport host and viewing of the Paddock and action on the track from the balcony.

The Pavilions are air conditioned and have plasma screens so guests can watch the racing from the comfort of their facility

A Short History of the Festival of Speed
It was in 1934 that Freddie March first amused his friends with the challenge of driving up the Park road in front of Goodwood House at breakneck speed, thereby sowing the seed for what was to become the most successful event on the motor sport calendar and the greatest car culture event of its type in the world.
For three days each year Goodwood plays home to the world’s greatest car collection. Cars and drivers are gathered from all over the globe to participate in this spectacular celebration of the internal combustion engine in all its forms. From F1 to rally, from Nascar to MotoGP; the festival has them all, not to mention a more complete collection of current Supercars than you will see at any motor show.
You could easily find yourself in the paddock rubbing shoulders and chatting with a world champion or you could be sipping champagne in the bar as the A380 Airbus makes a low pass right above your head. There is so much to excite and enthuse everyone that you’ll find entertaining guests of all ages easy and rewarding; they will be blown away by the scale of the whole sensory experience.
The noise of high revving engines, the smell of burning rubber, and the high octane atmosphere surrounding the theatre on the track are what compel people to come back time and time again to this, ‘the greatest show on earth’ (The Daily Telegraph).
