Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016-highlights
We are very lucky that one of the worlds greatest celebrations of motorsport is right on our doorstep, even if it appeared to cause more traffic chaos than usual this year!!Since 1993, the March family has allowed people to come and play with their toys on the Goodwood driveway. And by people, we mean car manufacturers and racing drivers. And by play, we mean speed, tyre smoke and lots of noise. The toys? Well, have a look through the pictures attached.
Its now 23 years since the first FOS and it has entertained motorsport fans with its mix of British summer-party vibe laced with rampant oversteer. It’s now a key fixture on the motoring calendar, and home to some actual car reveals - this year we saw Mercedes announce its rather loopy new 577bhp AMG GT R. There’s much more though: everything from hot hatches, super saloons, trackday specials, vintage F1 racers to bikes. Oh and to add the icing to the cake drivers like Nico Rosberg, Jenson Button and Holywood film star Keanu Reeves among many other noted motoring luminaries.
