Goodwood has announced the theme for its 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which will be “Peaks of Performance — Motorsport’s Game-Changers.” The 2017 Festival of Speed, scheduled for June 29 through July 2, will celebrate racing machines that were so fast, powerful, expensive or complicated that the rules had to be changed to rein them in. These are the high-water marks of motorsport, machines that left their mark on the history of the sport.
The Festival will showcase the greatest examples of this theme, including monstrous unlimited sportscars, 1930s-era 750-kilogram Grand Prix cars, Group B rally monsters (above, Nick Dungan photo courtesy of Goodwood), and ground-effect and turbo-powered F1 brutes.
Alongside this central theme, this year’s Festival will also feature a glittering array of cars and motorcycles from a broad array of disciplines, further enhancing the Festival of Speed’s reputation as an event unlike any other. Tickets and further information are now available at www.goodwood.com
