Goodwood Festival of Speed to be seen from the sky for the first time

22nd June 2016

Visitors and fans of the Goodwood Festival of Speed will be granted an entirely new and exciting perspective on the iconic event this year, thanks to a new partnership with global drone and aerial photography leader, DJI.

A team of experienced DJI drone pilots will use the firm’s innovative Inspire 1 drones to gather images and video content taken from angles never before seen at the Festival.

This will create unique vantage points and aerial photography taken from above the glorious Goodwood Estate, providing stunning new coverage of the event.

DJI will also have its own stand at the Festival, where visitors will be able to peruse the company’s stunning range of drones and state-of-the-art cameras.

DJI is the world leader on camera drone technology and already has experience in capturing major motorsport events, including the World Rally Championship and Nurburgring 24 Hours, in exciting and dynamic new ways.

Keep an eye on www.goodwood.com to see some of the amazing aerial footage of this year’s Festival of Speed.
