As a nation, we’re often accused of living on our past; of dwelling in a legacy of empire. Yet if there’s one thing that centuries of plunder and reckless adventure has taught us, it’s how to put on a show! And every summer, that’s precisely what we do.
A memorable Goodwood weekend has drawn to a close with Jaguar remaining the focus of the Festival as 50 years of the E-type were celebrated.
An estimated 180,000 people attended over the four days of the event, breaking previous records for the Festival – now in its 19th year.
Following the recent announcement that the 2011 Festival of Speed (1-3 July) will include the largest celebration of 100 years of the famous Indianapolis 500 race outside of the USA, Goodwood can today (1st April) confirm that it is commencing construction work on the challenging Festival track to cover the entire 1.16-mile hillclimb with one million bricks.
