You will also notice the gap in July and September that would be for both the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival. The Festival of Speed will take place between the 26th and 29th of June and the Revival happening between the 12th and 14th of September.
The theme of the 2014 Festival will be: “Addicted to winning – the unbeatable champions of motorsport”. The event organizers say the theme “will celebrate the legendary drivers and riders, teams and manufacturers, who have swept all before them in their sport.”
Manufacturer celebrations include Bentley, the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows, and Juan Manuel Fangio. Lotus and Porsche are also expected to celebrate their significant motorsport achievements.
Legendary motorcycle riders John Surtees, Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, Kenny Roberts and Valentino Rossi will also be honored. Alongside the main theme, the Festival will also be celebrating the centenary of Maserati, 100 years since the 1914 French Grand Prix, 60 years of the Jaguar D-type, the 50th anniversary of Mini’s first Monte Carlo Rally victory and the 40th anniversary of McLaren’s first F1 title.
The Goodwood Revival which takes place in September is a step back in time and focuses on pre-1966 motor racing, featuring a myriad of classic race cars, motorbikes and planes. Both spectators and competitors alike are encouraged to dress in attire from appropriate eras, adding to the glamor and appeal of the event. Motorsport legends including Sir Stirling Moss, Richard Attwood, Derek Bell and John Surtees will be attendance at the 2014 Revival.
Make sure you get your tickets early as both the Revival and Festival are expected to sell out.
