With Goodwood Revival sadly cancelled this year we look back on some of our favourite pictures from previous years and look forward to Goodwood Speedweek.
After much speculation, we’re pleased to reveal that Goodwood Speedweek presented by Mastercard will take place on 16-18 October 2020. The greatest elements of the Festival and Revival will be combined into one unmissable three-day extravaganza, staged behind closed doors at the Goodwood Motor Circuit. With no spectators, Speedweek will be optimised for broadcast and will be transmitted free of charge globally via the website www.goodwood.com, social channels and a range of broadcast partners.
Nothing like Speedweek has been seen before, as organisers bring more than a century of world class motorsport to life to celebrate the legendary feats of speed, courage and endurance that make it the most compelling sport on earth. On the track, the most valuable cars will do battle in the closest, most competitive historic racing in the world, driven by a glittering line-up of famous faces. Embracing the lack of spectators, a dramatic rally competition will see cars go on, over and even under the circuit, the inaugural ‘Goodwood Gymkhana’ will literally take over the venue, going to places that would normally be strictly out of bounds, and a never-to-be-repeated competition will see some of the fastest cars in motorsport history vying for honours in a winner-takes-all shoot-out over one lap. Of course it is the track action we are most excited to see and Speedweek will be doing it bigger, better and louder than ever. The favourite races from the Revival and Members’ Meeting will bring you three days of wheel-to-wheel action in everything from Edwardian aero-engined monsters to glorious ‘60s GTs and gnarly ‘70s saloon cars. There will be action off the track as well with the first-ever Goodwood Gymkhana and a Rally Sprint bringing the action screeching sideways onto your screen. The weekend will culminate in a Speedweek-exclusive Timed Shootout round the challenging 2.4-mile Goodwood Motor Circuit.
