Goodwood festival of speed

Post by Cross Flow Lotus7 » Sun 20 May 2012, 11:08

Just found out that I am going to be very close to where this is happening next month! Told my wife that I must go and attend!

So instead of spending my money on Top Gear, I will go to the real thing!

Anybody else going?

Man you are lucky :mrgreen: :mrgreen: You will not be dissapointed.. I was lucky enough to visit the Festival of Speed and the Revival Festival, both held at the Goodwood grounds in 2008, I returned in 2009 for the festival of speed. I would love to return as the shows are some of the best I have ever seen, and the quality of the cars racing are truly remarkable. Take lots of picture's.. I am terrible when it comes to car shows as I hardly take pictures as I get too excited and forget about the camera :P

You will enjoy it, I reckon it's the best thing I've every done with cars. Get their early, and look round the paddocks of race cars first, before it gets too crowded. Then have alook up the hill and then worry about the village green and stalls (if you ever get there).

I went all three days of the weekend (in 2005) and it was just about enough!

I stayed at the Chichister local university. They hire out rooms during the uni holidays. Basic, but very cheap with slap up breakfast thrown in. Organized a taxi into goodwood every morning, taxis's use dedicated roads so you miss most of the traffic congestion. In the evening took the dedicated bus back to Chichister for pub supper and then taxi back to digs.

Worked really well for me. I just so happen to have the number of Chichister tourist office here - 01243 775 888

Cheers
