The 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed will take place between 26-29 June 2014.

The theme of the festival will be: "Addicted to winning - the unbeatable champions of motorsport". The event organisers say the theme "will celebrate the legendary drivers and riders, teams and manufacturers, who have swept all before them in their sport."

Manufacturer celebrations include Bentley, who won five 24 Hours of Le Mans races in the 1920s, the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows, and Juan Manuel Fangio's five Formula One world titles. Lotus and Porsche are also expected to celebrate their motorsport achievements.

Legendary motorcycle riders John Surtees, Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, Kenny Roberts and Valentino Rossie will also be honoured.

Alongside the main theme, the Festival will also be celebrating the centenary of Maserati, and the marque will have a dedicated class in the annual concours d'elegance. Other significant events include marking 100 years since the 1914 French Grand Prix, 60 years of the Jaguar D-type, the 50th anniversary of Mini's first Monte Carlo Rally victory and the 40th anniversary of McLaren's first F1 title.

The famous Goodwood hillclimb will again return, with a star-studded line-up of drivers expected. This year saw the 20th anniversary of the event, with highlights including the world dynamic debut of the McLaren P1, and public debuts for the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Jaguar C-X75

The Moving Motor Show, which provides allows prospective car buyers to test drive the latest models, will also be running on Thursday 26 June.
