The gates are open to event-goers for the first time since 2019 as the legendary Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard returns to Goodwood.
Running as a pilot event as part of the Events Research Programme, the Festival of Speed will welcome back fans to witness the thrills, drama, stars, cars and interactive experiences that the event is renowned for.
For those unable to attend in person, there are many ways to still get involved from home and absorb all the action.
Three free live-streams will be available on Goodwood Road & Racing: a full event stream, the rally stage in full and a no commentary stream for those who just want to enjoy the sounds of the cars. It will also be streamed in batches on Facebook and Twitter, in full on YouTube and on Recast for the first time. The stream will start at 09.00 on Thursday, 08.30 Friday, Saturday and Sunday and run until the end of the hill action.
Highlights from the event will also be shown on ITV4 next week:
Festival of Speed Highlights 1 - ITV4 on Wednesday 14 July at 21:00
Festival of Speed Highlights 2 - ITV4 on Wednesday 15 July at 21:00
Future Lab Highlights - ITV4 on Friday 16 July at 21:00
The Central Feature makes an anticipated comeback (see photo) , in a slightly different guise than previous years. Created in celebration of the Lotus ethos of ‘adding lightness’, the delicate sculpture created by Unit 9, is interactive and immersive – as appealing to those watching from home as on the ground in front of it. With a specially designed accompanying app, users at the event and from afar will be able to experience the Lotus ‘Aeroad’ Central Feature.
A limited number of tickets and grandstands are still available at goodwood.com
