Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013 to Celebrate First 20 Years
Let’s hear it in official words, shall we? “Next summer’s Festival of Speed will focus on highlights from the Goodwood event’s glittering history. The biggest, best, fastest, loudest and most outrageous vehicles of all time will be invited back to West Sussex in early July 2013 for a weekend not to be missed.”
The 2013 edition of the Goodwood Festival of Speed will be attended by drivers and riders from all the important motorsport disciplines, from all ages, with the list including champions from Formula 1, Indycar, the World Rally Championship, Superbikes, NASCAR, World Sports Cars and Touring Cars.
The famous Goodwooh Hillclimb will see all kind of vehicles playing on it, from steam cars to Dakar trucks and even to Soapbox racers. We’ll also enjoy the Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ concours d’elegance, two-wheeled action in the Goodwood Action Sports (GAS) Arena and others.
“I really can’t believe that we’ve been staging the Festival of Speed for 20 years already; the time has simply flown by! I wasn’t too certain if anyone would be interested in coming along to our very first event back in 1993. We expected around 2,500 people, and over 25,000 turned up! Today the Festival attracts over 185,000 enthusiastic and knowledgeable spectators, which I just could not have imagined way back in 1993.” Goodwood Festival of Speed founder Lord March tells us.
