Festival of Speed | Press Article 19/07/23

After an amazing weekend of hillclimb action and anniversaries celebrating 30 years of the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, Goodwood is delighted to announce that the 2024 event will take place from Thursday 11 - Sunday 14 July.

Last weekend saw the Festival of Speed celebrate its 30th anniversary in style with a trio of thrilling balcony moments for Ferrari Le Mans winners James Calado, Antonio Giovinazzi and Miguel Molina, a host of MotoGP™ teams and riders and four-time Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel.
