New grandstand for flint wall

Goodwood’s famous Flint Wall will have its own grandstand for the first time during the 2014 Festival of Speed, giving visitors to the June 26-29 event the chance to see more of the action from a prime viewing location than ever before.

The Flint Wall is renowned as the most iconic and demanding section of the fabled 1.16-mile hillclimb, with superstars of motor sport often skimming the wall’s surface in search of a perfect run towards the finish line.

Sir Stirling Moss, Emerson Fittipaldi, John Surtees, Richard Petty and Sebastien Loeb will be among the heroes of motor racing proving their addiction to winning during the Festival of Speed weekend, and all driving past the Flint Wall on their runs up the hill from Friday-Sunday.

Giacomo Agostini, Freddie Spencer and Wayne Gardner will add two-wheeled heroism to the event as the three former grand prix motorcycle world champions ride during the event.

And you will not want to miss the chance to watch the event’s exciting conclusion – the all action Sunday afternoon fight to set the best time of the year – which this time will feature nine-time World Rally champion Loeb in Peugeot’s Pikes Peak Special 208 T16.

The new 600-seater stand, which will give fans a better view of the action than ever before at the Flint Wall, increases the number of seated trackside viewing locations at the Festival of Speed to nine.

This means that everybody with a roving grandstand ticket for the weekend will have more choice of superior viewing opportunities than in any of the event’s previous 21 editions, enhancing the experience of the world’s greatest automotive garden party even further.
