Festival of Speed ready for June with ‘innovations’ theme.
This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will celebrate ‘The Innovators – Masterminds of Motorsport’, a theme which will focus on the technical innovations that have shaped motor racing over the decades.
Goodwood said the event will focus on “the technical landmarks that have seen the racing automobile develop from crude behemoth to space-age projectile”, while promoting the link between motorsport-derived technology and the future of mobility.
The 2022 Festival of Speed will run from Thursday 23 June to Sunday 26 June (having taken place in July for the past few years), with the newest models, technology and innovation on display.
Formula 1 cars, drift displays and champion drivers will also make a return, as will the festival’s Future Lab and Electric Avenue, which made its debut this year.
“I’m thrilled that our much-loved, sell-out motorsport events will be making a spectacular return in 2022. Thank you to everyone who attended and partnered with the Festival of Speed, Revival and Members’ Meeting this year,” said the Duke of Richmond in 2021.
Goodwood also announced the return of its annual Members’ Meeting for its 79th year, which will take place from Saturday 9 April to Sunday 10 April, and the Goodwood Revival, which returns from Friday 16 September to Sunday 18 September.
Two new events will also launch at Goodwood this year, with dog-themed a new play on the event called Goodwoof taking place from 28 to 29 May and cycling-focused Eroica Britannia from 6 August to 7 August.
The two new events will respectively bring “all things dog” and vintage cycling to the estate’s popular events portfolio.
