Goodwood Festival of Speed 2007

The event theme this year is; "Spark of Genius - Breaking Records, Pushing Boundaries" and runs from the 22nd - 24th June. The rally stage will be improved again this year with the addition of a YUMP on the back straight which should be worth watching.

Goodwood's relaxed "garden party" atmosphere attracts many of motor sport's biggest names, both past and present, to come and enjoy a fun weekend of driving, free from the pressures and hassle so often experienced elsewhere. The Festival of Speed paddock is possibly the only place in the world where you can approach, talk to and seek autographs from perhaps 50 world-famous drivers and personalities without encountering frustrating restrictions such as barricades, obstructive minders and unwilling, reclusive stars. One of the main draws to this years event is again Colin McRae who we understand will be debuting his R4 Performance car......... there will also be a brace of other World and National rally stars including ex member Andy Burton who will be bringing his famous Peugeot Cosworth and many of the current works team and "semi-retired" drivers with cars of yesteryear.

Visitors to Goodwood have traditionally treated the drivers with courtesy and respect, therefore encouraging them to interact with the public in a uniquely informal, friendly and patient manner. Nowhere else are you more likely to come face to face with your motoring hero and chat as if you were dear friends.

Several club members will be helping the Southern Car Club and the Goodwood Team again this year with the rally stage so come up the hill and have a chat ? see you there.
