:: Goodwood Festival of Speed, United Kingdom ::

Take a peek at the Goodwood Festival of Speed photo gallery.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed (FoS) is a major motoring event with a quirky British quality to it. You know that it's an event for the true enthusiast by the special cars that seem to be travelling in the same direction with you on motorways. In fact they are. Lord March created it in '93 as an annual event and it has grown to be one of the more prominent events in the British motoring calendar.

It mixes serious hill climbing challenges with motoring heritage, silly Wacky Racer hill-climbs, exciting supercar runs and car exhibits.

Each year is a themed event with a spectacular sculpture incorporating full-sized cars displayed in the front yard of the mansion - this year the occasion was Land Rovers 60th birthday. The entire event wrapped up with an aerobatic performance by the Red Arrows team.
