The 2018 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard theme will celebrate the event's 25th anniversary: "Festival of Speed - The Silver Jubilee". The first Festival, in June 1993, redefined what a car event could be, and, in the years since, it has firmly established itself as the world's greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture. Now, to mark the Silver Jubilee, the Duke of Richmond (formerly Lord March) will choose his 25 favourite moments from the first 25 events - personal highlights which, in very different ways, have been landmarks in the Festival's history. These moments, and the cars and drivers which created them, will be cornerstones of this year’s event, alongside the usual gathering of extraordinary vehicles from the dawn of motoring to the present day and beyond.
The Festival of Speed is the largest motoring garden party in the world - a unique summer weekend that brings together an impossibly heady mix of cars, stars and motorsport Royalty to create the largest car cultural event in the world.
Location: Goodwood House nr Chichester
Region: London+South East
Goodwood - Shortly after taking over the estate in the early nineties, Lord March wanted to bring back motor racing to Goodwood Circuit. He has established two events -the Goodwood Revival, based on the circuit - representing a magical step back in time to the romance and glamour of motor racing as it used to be. In front of Goodwood House, the annual Festival of Speed has established itself as the world's biggest celebration of the motor car with 150,000 visitors.
