Last year 35,000 people attended the Moving Motor Show and an even larger crowd is expected this year.
What does it mean to Lord March to open the 24th FoS in a BMW in the company’s centenary year?
“It’s a huge thing for us because BMW are such a big part of the event and great supporter of Goodwood as a whole,” he told us. “With BMW first coming here in 1995 and Rolls-Royce making their wonderful cars here, it’s a very special relationship.”
Does the FoS founder have a message for the expected 200,000 visitors over the next four days?
“Enjoy the event, and enjoy this year’s theme. ‘Full throttle, the endless pursuit of power’ is a wonderful excuse to bring all the baddest and craziest cars and bikes to Goodwood, and weather permitting it’s going to be a sensational few days.
“My own personal highlights? The entire BMW centenary celebration is going to great. I am looking forward to seeing the Porsche that won Le Mans here, and for me the James Hunt and Barry Sheene tributes are going to be very special.”
