It's the first time the event will be held since 2019

Today the gates open to event-goers for the first time since 2019 as the legendary Festival of Speed returns to Goodwood.

This is year it’s 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 well known 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 including; 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.

The Central Feature will make an anticipated comeback as a celebration of Lotus. 

Created in celebration of the Lotus ethos of ‘adding lightness’, the delicate sculpture created by Unit 9, is interactive and immersive. With a specially designed accompanying app, users at the event and from afar will be able to experience the Lotus ‘Aeroad’ Central Feature.

The full timetable of events is available on the Goodwood website
