Festival time. This weekend Lord March will, for the 18th year, open the gates of his Sussex estate for four days of high-octane excitement, as the car industry and racing fraternity commune at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show.
It doesn’t matter whether you drive a sports car, a classic or a bog standard family hatch; whether you spend your weekends competing in motorsport or just watching, whether you collect supercars, racing drivers’ autographs or both, whether you’re more interested in new road-going performance metal, or 40-year-old racers... there will be treats in generous number for you, and hundreds of thousands of like-minded fans, at Goodwood this weekend.
A special display of some 50 museum classics will mark Alfa Romeo’s centenary. Supercars, superbikes, concept cars, rare classics and unforgettable motorsport machinery will all be taking to the hill – among them McLaren’s new MP4-12C supercar.
