The Goodwood Festival of Speed is an annual hill climb featuring historic motor racing vehicles held in the grounds of Goodwood House, West Sussex, England in late June or early July; the event is scheduled to avoid clashing with the Formula One season, enabling fans to see F1 machines as well as cars and motorbikes from motor racing history climb the hill.
In the early years of the Festival, tens of thousands attended over the weekend; as of 2014 it attracts crowds of around 100,000 on each of the three days it is now held.
In 2016, to commemorate the 40 year anniversary of James Hunt winning the F1 World Championship, Mc Laren commissioned a P1 GTR which ran up the hill driven by Bruno Senna.
From 2000 to 2004 this was a downhill race for gravity-powered cars.
In 1994, Saturday was added, making it a weekend event.
In 1996, Friday was added, making it a three-day event.
Starting from just below the hill-climb finish line, to a finish line in front of the house.
