Goodwood Festival of Speed Features Some Amazing Porsches
Where else can you watch a pair of Le Mans winners racing alongside a 908/3 and a 954 rally car? Catch all the action online through July 2!
Since 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has brought an amazing collection of cars to Lord March‘s driveway at the Goodwood House, located just north of Chichester, England. Every summer, the event just seems to get bigger and bigger. As have the crowds, which once totaled around ten thousand but are now capped at 150,000.
This year’s event features everything from Formula One cars to vintage racing machinery to iconic supercars. And the best part? You get to see all this priceless machinery blast up a hill climb track with reckless abandon.
This year’s event kicked off on June 29 and runs through July 2. Each day carries its own unique itinerary, featuring everything from supercar unveilings to a series of moving car shows. And of course, tons of hill climb and off-road rally racing action.
Naturally, we’re most interested in the Porsche machinery in attendance. And thanks to the wonders of Goodwood’s YouTube channel and Instagram page, we’re able to catch all of it all weekend, in real time!
Aside from your “common” 356s, air-cooled 911s, and GT3s, you’ll see priceless machinery like the legendary 917/30. And fresh off its incredible, 3rd straight Le Mans winning performance, the 919 is also in attendance once again. We guarantee this onboard video of last year’s blast up the Goodwood hill sends chills up your spine.
And where else can you see Emanuele Pirro behind the wheel of the Targa-winning Porsche 908/3?
Or the legend, Mark Webber himself, piloting the Le Mans winning Porsche GT1?
Even if you’re more of a dirt-racing kinda person, there’s plenty of vintage Porsche rally action to see, like when the virtually priceless Bastos car took flight there a few years ago.
This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed promises to be busting at the seams with drool-worthy Porsches once again. And even if you didn’t make the flight across the pond this weekend, you can still enjoy all the action online.
