Goodwood Festival of Speed ready for ultimate summer motorsport showcase

ā€˜Motorsportā€™s Record Breakersā€™ are set to head to Chichester this week (July 4/5/6/7) for the ultimate adrenaline-fuelled summer garden party as the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard roars into life.

Billed as the worldā€™s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture, the four-day extravaganza will welcome tens of thousands of fans to the Goodwood estate as they showcase the past, present and future.

As has been the case in years gone by, Festival of Speed has selected a theme for the event, with the 2019 edition being Speed Kings – Motorsportā€™s Record Breakers; where they will bring together the most celebrated and successful drivers, riders, cars, motorcycles and teams that have gone further than their contemporaries in the pursuit of victory.

Those attending will be able to feast their eyes on what is likely to be another awe-inspiring Goodwood Central Feature. Situated at the front of Goodwood House, this year the centrepiece will be dedicated to Aston Martin in honour of the 70th anniversary of brand winning its first race at Goodwood.

Further celebrations and homages will be made surrounding the career of seven-time Formula 1 champion, the legendary Niki Laura and the Monaco Grand Prix, amongst much more.

One of the most eagerly anticipated parts of the event will be the coveted Hillclimb shootout, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary. With all manner of machinery set to go against the stopwatch, blistering times are expected to be set on the 1.16-mile course.

Stars of motorsport will also be in attendance across all four days with the likes of Lando Norris, Daniel Ricciardo, Alex Albon, Ken Block, Petter Solberg and Tom Kristensen as just a handful of names to be confirmed so far.

Major car manufacturers will all be present at FoS too as they showcase some of their new and innovative models.

With plenty to see and fun for all of the family on every day, the 2019 edition of the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard is not to be missed.
