Provisional 2018 Festival of Speed and Revival Meeting dates announced!
The dust has barely settled on Goodwood’s 2017 motorsport season, with another trio of epic events – the 75th Members’ Meeting, Festival of Speed and Revival Meeting – consigned to the history books and memory banks.
Now, though, attention turns to 2018 as we plan yet more exciting race programmes, demonstrations, anniversaries and parades at the Hillclimb and Motor Circuit.
We’re delighted to share the provisional dates for the Festival of Speed and Revival Meetings, both of which celebrate important milestones of their own next year.
The Festival of Speed, the world-renowned motorsport garden party that each summer gathers motorsport heroes from the past and present, as well as hundreds of legendary race and rally cars and motorcycles, to celebrate the sport’s colourful and dramatic history, will provisionally take place between July 12-15.
The Festival celebrates its 25th birthday in 2018 and a unique and thrilling programme will reflect its extraordinary growth in size and popularity since that inaugural taster event back in 1993. Rest assured that a mind-blowing assortment of metal will be assembled to send shivers down the spines of petrolheads, whatever their age or persuasion.
The Revival Meeting, since 1998 a magical step back in time that each September recreates and celebrates the circuit’s golden age of racing between the late 1940s and mid-1960s, all played out in front of a period, movie-set backdrop, will provisionally take place between September 7-9.
As part of the event’s 20th anniversary celebrations, a stunning array of valuable and historic competition machinery will do battle on the superfast and challenging Motor Circuit, with the now-traditional series of demonstrations and parades set to be extra special as we remember 20 years of the world’s finest historic motorsport meeting.
Remember, though, the dates are provisional and subject to change so pencil them in for now and keep your eyes peeled for confirmation later in the year.
Don’t forget to book tickets early, once the dates are inked, as both events sell out each year.
