Goodwood Festival of Speed

Spectators will catch a glimpse of some of the new super cars.

Goodwood Festival of Speed is the largest car festival in the world and takes place each year in the Sussex countryside surrounding Goodwood House.

The theme for this year's event will focus on celebrating 20 years of the Goodwood Festival of Speed and highlights from the festival's history. For only the second time in its history, Sir Malcolm Campbell's Bluebird V LSR car will be crossing the Atlantic Ocean to be displayed at the 2013 festival.

Visitors will be able to experience five vehicle display areas, a performance by the red arrows display team and the Goodwood Action Sports Arena, which returns bigger and better after its initial success in 2011.

Not only will you see some of the world's top performing cars but some of the biggest names in motorsport have been confirmed to be in action at this year's festival. Spectators can get close to the cars and their drivers, including Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart and John Surtees.

11-14 July - Check the local weather forecast before heading to the world's largest car festival, the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Goodwood Action Sports brings together a selection of the world's leading action sport stars for four days of jaw-dropping freestyle motocross accompanied by BMX dirt, high jump and flatland action as well as motorcycle and mountain bike trials. All-new for 2013 will be the GAS Experience Zone aimed at setting first-timers loose on two wheels through a series of petrol, battery and pedal-powered experiences catering for all ages.

Five GAS disciplines at Goodwood will mix petrol and pedal-power, with jaw-dropping freestyle motocross sharing airspace with BMX dirt jumping, while a little closer to terra firma the stars of motorcycle trials, mountain bike trials and BMX flatland will demonstrate an almost supernatural sense of balance and inch-perfect precision.
