Goodwood Motor Circuit is an extraordinary place. The only classic circuit in the world to remain entirely in its original form, it was sympathetically restored over a six year period to 1998 in preparation for the inaugural Goodwood Revival that year. Thanks to that investment, it is a unique and exceptional venue for track hire.
Nestling at the foot of the South Downs, the picturesque venue was the scene of legendary battles between great heroes from 1948 through to 1966. Brabham, McLaren, Surtees, Moss, Gurney, Fangio, Gonzalez, Salvadori, Hawthorn, Farina, Bira, Collins, Parnell, Graham Hill, Phil Hill, Clark, Ireland, de Fraffenried, Taruffi, Fairman, Hamilton, Brooks, Shelby, Bonnier, Gendebien, Von Trips, Trintignant, Parkes, Gregory, Sears, Amon, Hall, Penske, Stewart, Courage, Rindt… the list goes on and on. And they drove everything here from diminutive 500cc Coopers to the then greatest jewels of sports car and Grand Prix racing.
The Goodwood Revival is the world’s largest historic race meeting, which relives the glory days of historic Goodwood Motor Circuit. But the Revival is far more than a series of races for historic cars – it is a magical step back in time, a chance to get away from the modern world and revel in the romance of motor racing as it used to be.
The Festival of Speed is far more than just a hillclimb: it can justifiably claim to be the world’s biggest and most diverse celebration of the history of motor sport. It is the only occasion where you will see in action the greatest competition cars and star drivers from all eras: everything from 19th century steam carriages to current Formula One; fabulous racing motorcycles; classic rally cars to 3000bhp dragsters; plus motor sport legends like Moss, Surtees, Brabham and Andretti rubbing shoulders with today's hottest properties such as Jenson Button and Colin McRae.
