Goodwood announces 2022 Festival of Speed theme

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard will celebrate ‘The innovators – masterminds of motorsport’.

Scheduled to take place between June 23-26, FOS will be dedicated to innovation in motoring and motorsport, including the drivers who pushed the sport to the next level and engineers who stretched the rules to breaking point in the name of progress.

A number of iconic and innovative machines will also line up to take on the famous Hill during Sunday’s Shootout as well.

After proving to be a smash-hit last year, the Electric Avenue will return to showcase the latest electric vehicles available and help people understand how they can best make the transition into a zero-carbon future. 

The Future Lab will also be open to visitors throughout the four-day event with the best in innovative future mobility, robotics, aeronautics, space travel and artificial intelligence all set to be on display.

“This year’s Festival theme – ‘The Innovators – Masterminds of Motorsport’ – allows us to celebrate some of the greatest achievements in history, while also highlighting the event’s evolving focus on future technology,” said the Duke of Richmond. 

“Just as race-inspired innovations such as four-valve engines, monocoque chassis and turbocharging have shaped the past and present of the cars we drive in the real world, so electrification, autonomy and other new technologies – the development of which is accelerated by the white heat of competition – will have a profound effect on the future of personal mobility. 

“The Festival of Speed is the only place in the world to bring all these stories together in one place, celebrating the past, present and future in a uniquely immersive, dynamic way.”
