Join us to enjoy one of the biggest and fast paced motoring events in the world, the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Get up close to all the high speed action as you rub shoulders with the hottest stars and cars, whilst taking in the exhilarating atmosphere of this spectacular event. An invitation to the Goodwood House at this Hillclimb event is one of the most coveted in the sporting calendar. For spectators the Festival of Speed is a garden party, a motor racing picnic in the park and a weekend to soak up the biggest, loudest and most outrageous vehicles.

Attracting over 250,000 visitors over the four days, the Festival of Speed showcases some of the world champions from Formula 1, Indycar, World Rally Championship, Superbikes, NASCAR, World Sports Cars and Touring Cars. This year will feature some of the highlights from the Festival’s history over the past 20 years. Mingle with some motoring superstars and legends with the likes of Moss and Surtees, Button and Hamilton, Stewart and Andretti, Solberg and Fogarty. Confirmed F1 attendees this year include world champions Mercedes AMG Petronas F1, Williams Martini Racing, Scuderia Ferrari, McLaren-Honda and Infinity Red Bull Racing.

This amazing historic motorsport spectacle began from a vision of Lord March as he wanted the event in the backdrop of his beautiful home, Goodwood House. Now the Festival of Speed has developed into the largest and most exhilarating motorsport event in the world.

Treat guests to quite simply, the greatest gathering of motor racing machinery in the world, a high point of the sporting summer and a social occasion not to be missed. Choose from a fantastic range of hospitality giving you stunning views overlooking the Formula 1 paddock and track in the Moss Pavilion or how about witnessing all the action from the first corner in the Hill Pavilion. This sporting spectacle will definitely impress all your guests giving them a thrilling day from start to finish!

The Library Lawn

The Library Lawn is a more secluded area, where you will be looked after in a marquee on the private lawn in front 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 a roving grandstand ticket that allows you to sit in any of the trackside grandstands.

The GP Club

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. 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 Trackside Pavilions

Trackside Pavilions offer a classic entertaining experience in your own private pavilion for 30 guests. Here you are on the outside of the track with views from your balcony of the start line and up past Goodwood House. This is a favourite place for the F1 drivers to demonstrate the raw power and spectacle of a modern Grand Prix racing car.

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).
