The 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed celebrated “Maestros — Motorsport’s Great All-Rounders”. It was a celebration of teams, drivers and marques that have succeeded across several disciplines.
Like many events, the 2020 Festival of Speed was unable to proceed due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, although it was replaced by the fantastic ‘Speedweek’ which combined it’s best bits with the Goodwood Revival.
This year’s event wasn’t completely immune from disruption either, due to the delay on the lifting of restrictions announced by Boris Johnson in mid-June. However, the organisers successfully convinced the government to include the Festival on its list of pilot events – meaning that all the current ticket holders were able to attend as planned, rather than the attendance having to have been capped at 4,000, as some feared.
