It is here! The Goodwood Festival of Speed returns to the Goodwood estate in West Sussex. The event is open from 26 June 2014 to the 29 June 2014, plenty of time to breathe in all the fumes from the largest motoring garden party in the world.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is brilliant, it is my Glastonbury! The theme this year is ‘addicted to winning’ a theme that no doubt suits the majority of people attending. A theme that fits in with the cars on show!
The festival has something for all motor heads but I cannot wait to see the array of supercars this year. It is rumoured that there are plenty of exotic supercars that have never been seen by the public eye before (… can not contain my excitement!!…). I am particularly excited for the supercar run, they are timing all the supercars on show so we can really see how fast they all are! Again, it is rumoured that the McLaren P1 will be a part of this, but who knows what else is in store for us!
There are going to be new supercars for us to feast our eyes on too, the new Honda NSX hybrid, I wonder how that will compare to the McLaren in the supercar run? Only time will tell!! I am particularly excited to see how the LaFerrari, Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari California T and F12 Berlinetta all do in the time race.
Being able to get so close to these perfectly engineered vehicles is amazing, but to be able to hear the roar and small the engine as they speed past me is an unbearable about of excitement I am having to contain until Saturday!
The brilliant thing about this weekend is that you never get a chance to see that many brilliant, exotic, powerful supercars all in one place at the same time. On that note, I am off to pack! This weekend is going to brilliant and well worth the weekend of bee-keeping I have agreed to do with my wife as a compromise!
