Goodwood Festival of Speed

This Friday the 29th of June the world’s largest motoring garden party is taking place – Goodwood Festival of Speed! This is a unique weekend with all the best cars and stars from the world of motor sport.

Throughout the festival there are at least five Vehicle Display areas where you can see the most excellent motors. And when the autos are not racing around on the Hillclimb route they are stationed in their own Paddocks. Here you have the opportunity to meet and greet the drivers and see the cars close up.

The weekend is the only event outside the Formula 1 arena where the current F1 teams attend; the regulars include Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Mark Webber.

The entire weekend is packed with fuel filled fun and here is just a quick outline of the three days:

On the Friday the doors open and people are invited to have a look at the mad and mean motor machines at the paddocks. There is also a chance to take part in Bonham’s Summer Sale – an auction of rare and valuable classic cars.

The race kick starts on the Saturday, where the world champions will compete to be the fastest on the Hillclimb track. Further up on top of the hill the World Rally Championship will take place, while further down in the Goodwood park music will be playing – this is a great opportunity for friends and families to get together over a picnic and a drink.

On the Sunday the Formula 1 cars get some action as the Grand Prix stars come out to play. There will also be a Shoot Out where both modern and vintage cars compete to be the fastest car of the festival. And last but not least Lord March will be hosting the Prize Giving ceremony.

Specialised Covers are really excited about this weekend and have supplied many of the Formula 1 teams including Mclaren, Lotus and Ferrari with covers. Paul Smith and Andrew Charlton will be attending from Specialised Covers on Friday 29th June to experience the exhilarating speed event and to assess the venue, as we are hoping to attend in 2013 in an official capacity.
