Goodwood Festival of Speed will next year celebrate 30 years since it first opened in 1993.

The 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed will be held from 13-16 July next year, as the world-famous motoring event celebrates its 30th anniversary.

First held in 1993, the Festival of Speed will this time celebrate its prominence as the ultimate destination for technology and future mobility for 30 years.

The Electric Avenue and Future Lab will both return, as will a selection of the world’s biggest new vehicles, motorsport teams and drivers.

The event will be followed by the Goodwood Revival two months later, running from 8-10 September.

The year 2023 marks several significant milestones for the Sussex estate. The Festival of Speed celebrates its 30th anniversary, the Revival will return for its 25th iteration, the Goodwood Road Racing Club turns 25 and it will be 75 years since the Goodwood Motor Circuit first opened.

“Following a spectacular season at Goodwood, we’re delighted to announce the dates of our 2023 motorsport events as we start preparing for an exhilarating year both on and off the track,” said patron the Duke of Richmond.

“2023 is already set to be very special as we celebrate 75 years of motorsport at Goodwood, encompassing 25 years of the Goodwood Road Racing Club, 30 years of the Festival of Speed and 25 years of Revival. It’s certainly going to be an unmissable year.’

The Festival of Speed has grown to become the UK’s most significant automotive event, celebrating both vintage and modern-day vehicles. Since 1997, it has also celebrated the industry’s biggest firms with its central sculpture, in 2022 that being BMW M.

This year’s Festival of Speed played host to the public debuts of several exciting new cars, including the Aston Martin Valkyrie, BMW M3 Touring, GMA T50 and Lotus Eletre.
