One of the finest and fastest festivals in the motor calendar is back for 2017. The Festival of Speed is returning to Goodwood House from 29 June to 2 July, for four days of incredible cars and motorsport stars.
There’s an awful lot jammed into the four days of action, so here’s our quick look at what’s happening on each day of the festival.
Thursday: fewer crowds, same number of cars
Normally, the Thursday is a little quieter than the rest of the weekend, with smaller crowds and cheaper tickets.
This year, the Thursday is just as busy as the rest of the weekend (but the crowds are still smaller, and the tickets cheaper)! Supercars will be taking on the Hillclimb, the Formula 1 paddock will be open for attendees and there will be plenty of action at the Rally Stage and more.
The Thursday is a cheaper alternative, but still a great day for car fans.
Thursday tickets cost £34 for adults, £17 for young persons and nothing for children aged 0-12.
Friday: fantastic Formula 1 and unmissable debuts
More cars will be taking on the famous Hillclimb, including ferociously fast Formula 1 cars. Blink and you’ll miss ‘em.
If the Formula 1 masterpieces aren’t enough for you, Friday at Goodwood is often the day for debuts. At last year’s event, everything from the Aston Martin DB11 to the brilliant Bugatti Chiron were debuted. And, as well as these cars, there’s a full day of activities across the rest of the festival.
Friday tickets (for admission only) cost £57 for adults, £28.50 for young persons and nothing for children.
Saturday: superstars and supercars
Over at the Hillclimb, you’ll find the supercar shoot-out. Elsewhere at the Festival, you’ll find the Goodwood Action Sports Arena, where amazing motorcycle riders will probably spend as much time in the air as they do on the ground.
Saturday is also a great day to spot a motorsport superstar amongst the supercars. So keep an eye out!
Saturday tickets (for admission only) cost £67 for adults, £33.50 for young persons and nothing for children.
Sunday: the festival finale
Sunday may be the end of the festival, but it’s still an action-packed day. There’s the shoot-out final at the Hillclimb, superstars appearing across the festival, more action at the Goodwood Action Sports Arena and more.
If you haven’t been to see it already, Sunday is a great day to check out the Activities Field, Rally Stage and dynamic Moving Motor Show display.
Sunday tickets (for admission only) cost £67 for adults, £33.50 for young persons and nothing for children.
The above ticket prices are only for admission, with different ticket offers available on the Goodwood Festival of Speed website. But, be warned, these tickets sell fast!
