Goodwood Announces Unique ‘Speedweek’ Event
Goodwood has announced its inaugural Speedweek event – a unique extravaganza of motorsport taking place in late October at Goodwood. But what does Goodwood Speedweek involve? Here’s everything you need to know.
Having taken the difficult decision to postpone the 78th Members’ Meeting, Goodwood Festival of Speed (Fos) and the Goodwood Revival, the estate was determined that 2020 would not be a year with no racing at Goodwood.
So, from 16-18th October 2020, Goodwood Speedweek will bring together the best elements from the Festival of Speed and the Revival, plus some races usually only seen at the Members’ Meetings, for an incredible celebration of speed, power, grace and beauty.
The event will take place behind closed doors at the Goodwood Motor Circuit and, while the organisers have stated how they are not to be able to welcome fans, the lack of spectators does mean they can host a greater variety of cars, create new racing formats, and film it in entirely new ways.
The event will be fully streamed through the Goodwood Road & Racing website in its entirety and the digital broadcast will add layers of interactivity to the action, putting viewers in the virtual driving seat.
Speedweek will be a once-in-a-lifetime event, bringing together more than a century of motorsport and motoring and celebrating the past, present and future of fans shared passions. The three-day broadcast will be packed with supercar demonstration runs, new car launches, next-generation technology from FOS Future Lab, and an online auction of beautiful machinery by the longstanding partner Bonhams.
Speedweek action will be available, free of charge, on the Goodwood Road & Racing website, through social channels and selected global broadcast partners. The programme of events and full driver line-up will be announced over the coming weeks and months Will you be tuning in?
