The Festival of Speed will feature a large amount of F1 teams and drivers from the current season, along with the world’s most top drivers and riders. The current F1 drivers include previous World Champs, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, plus current double World Champion Sebastian Vettel. Also, if you love the world of Grand Prix, rallying and motorcycling, many stars from there will be available.

The Supercar Run will indeed, be a highlight of the main event, because guests will be able to see a sneak-preview of the latest and newest cars for the very first time, but not just to look at but they get watch as the best supercars take to the Goodwood hillclimb, unlike most motor shows.

This year’s festivities start off on June 27th with the Moving Motor Show, followed by the four-day event, the Festival of Speed, which runs from June 28 to July 1, 2012. For more information on the Goodwood Festival of Speed, please visit
