Simon Ostler

It’s that time of the year again, and we’re very excited to reveal the timetable for the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard; four days absolutely packed with exciting action as we celebrate stories, machines and people from the past, present and future of motoring and motorsport.

Thursday timetable at the 2024 Festival of Speed

Thursday morning will begin once again with the Duke of Richmond’s traditional opening moment on the Hill at 09:00. Then the first batch of cars will be at the Startline at 09:40 for the first celebration of this year’s Festival of Speed theme: Horseless to Hybrid – Revolutions in Power, which will see cars spanning 1890-1960 take to the Hill.

The cars in First Glance presented by heycar and the supercar batch will be in action for the first time at 10:30 and 11:10 respectively before the Red Arrows arrive at 11:45. The first of our celebrations kick off at 12:55 as we shine the spotlight on Joest Racing, Niki Lauda and Mercedes-Benz, a batch supplemented with the legends in the Drift class.

Attention turns away from the Hill at 14:00 for the MG moment in front of Goodwood House before the first F1 action of the weekend kicks off at 14:20 together with the riders of the Isle of Man TT bikes.

The second half of our theme celebration closes the Hill action on Thursday, as cars from 1970-2024 depart from the Startline at 17:20.

They return on Friday morning as both halves of the theme batch kick off the second day of Hill running at 08:30 before the sound of F1 engines provides the perfect wake-up call at 10:05. First Glance and road bikes head out for their first runs of the day at 10:55 with the celebrations kicking off at 11:35.

Friday’s MG moment takes place at 13:05 before the first Timed Shootout action of the weekend gets underway with the drivers’ only practice runs at 14:45. We’ll turn our attention to the House again for the Richard Petty Balcony Moment which we’re sure is going to draw an impressive crowd beneath the Central Feature.

Hill action resumes at 15:30 with more theme celebrations, First Glance and supercars before the day ends with Drift cars, and celebrations of Joest Racing, Niki Lauda and Mercedes-Benz.

Sticking with the TT theme, Saturday’s balcony moment will celebrate the remarkable achievements of the road race’s most successful rider: Michael Dunlop who took his 29th victory on the Isle of Man in 2024, at 12:20.

Qualifying for the Timed Shootout begins at 14:50 before another special moment to remember Gil de Ferran, who died in December 2023, in the Ballroom Assembly Area. Final runs for First Glance, supercars and the cars of the main theme celebration from 1890-1960 will close the day.
