Goodwood Festival of Speed revved up to make triumphant return

The Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard will make a triumphant return this year, revving into life on July 8/9/10/11.

Billed as the world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture, the four-day extravaganza will welcome thousands of fans to the Goodwood estate in West Sussex for the first time since 2019.

With coronavirus restrictions continuing to ease, Goodwood has worked tirelessly with the UK Government to be operate as a pilot event as part of the Events Research Programme (ERP).

As a pilot event, all people on site will need to agree to the conditions of entry set out by the Events Research Programme in order to enjoy the event safely. This will include either having had both doses of the vaccine at least 14 days before the event, or proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test, which can be taken at home or at a recognised centre within 48 hours of the event.

This year’s theme for Goodwood FOS – “The Maestros – Motorsport’s Great All-Rounders” – is carried over from the abandoned 2020 event and it will highlight those drivers, teams and manufacturers that have transcended the boundaries of motorsport.

One of the most eagerly anticipated parts of the event will be the coveted Hillclimb shootout, which takes centre stage on Sunday, 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, John McGuiness, Mario Andretti, Jamie Chadwick Alex Albon, Lance Stroll and Emerson Fittipaldi are just a handful of names fans will see.

Major car manufacturers will all be present at FoS too as they showcase some of their new and innovative models, with one new feature being the ‘Electric Avenue’, which looks towards the future of cars.

With plenty to see and fun for all of the family on every day, the 2021 edition of the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard is not to be missed.
