The Goodwood Festival of Speed – Motorhome Camping
For a quarter of a century, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has been a Mecca for motoring enthusiasts. Described as the largest motoring garden party in the world, it has a friendly feel, like a picnic for petrolheads and is held annually on the idyllic West Sussex Goodwood Estate. It’s a four day event, so you’ll need somewhere to stay and we can’t think of a better way to get into the spirit of a motoring festival than to hire a motorhome and book a pitch on the campsite.
The festival is motorhome friendly and electric hookups are available, but once you’ve arranged motorhome hire, it’s best to contact the organisers to check the available camping options. You can arrive as early as Wednesday lunchtime and stay on site until midday the following Monday.
When is the Goodwood Festival of Speed?
The summer is the time for festivals of all kinds and the Goodwood Festival of Speed is no exception, taking place from the 4th to the 7th of July this year. It’s a must see event for anyone who has any interest in motorsport, roaring engines, the shredding of tyres and high octane action.
The 2019 theme has been announced as “Speed Kings – Motorsport’s Record Breakers” and while not much is known about how this theme will be played out, we do know that, as well as the usual racing you’d expect, there’ll be displays of drifting as well as stunt driving and shootouts to thrill spectators. There will, of course, be the Goodwood Hill Climb. Will anyone be able to break the record of 41.6 seconds that’s stood for 20 years? Only time will tell!
The Goodwood Festival of Speed and the GoodWood Revival
While the festival of speed is the longest running and most famous, it’s not the only motorsport festival to be held at the Goodwood Motor Circuit. ‘Goodwood Revival’ is a celebration of classic motoring and takes place later in the year from September the 13th to the 15th. Expect to see classic cars on show and on the racetrack too, along with drivers and their pit crews in period dress for a real flavour of motoring’s yesteryear. What better way to pay homage to motoring’s proud history!
