Each day of this eagerly anticipated three day event has its own unique atmosphere.
Friday – The tranquil gardens of Goodwood House are transformed with the arrival of an array of stunning cars and bikes, many of which are being prepared and tested on the famously challenging hill climb. Demonstrations, exhibitions and many shopping opportunities add to the excitement. Perhaps one of the most tantalizing purchase opportunities of the year is at the Bonhams Summer Sale where some of the world’s rarest and most valuable classic cars come under the hammer. Great music, great food & wine and a supercharged atmosphere work their magic on all guests whether motor sport aficionados or not.
Saturday – World champions past and present from Formula 1 and World Superbikes get behind the wheels of some spectacular vehicles and set the pace on the twists and turns of the demanding hill climb. The cool sound of jazz competes with the low growl of the combustion engine as action takes place on the track, in the air and at the awe inspiring rally stage.
Sunday – This is competition day. Nerves are shredded as drivers vie to take the laurels. Well known faces and cars from different eras battle it out on Sunday Shoot Out to get the fastest time of the day. As the sun sets behind Goodwood House at the end of three thrilling days, Lord March awards the much coveted trophies to the victors.
