Goodwood has announced provisional dates for the 2016 Festival of Speed and Revival, ahead of tickets going on general sale on November 5.

The Festival of Speed, which celebrates the very best from the past and present of motoring and motor sport, will be held on June 23-26, 2016.

As usual, the event will open with the Moving Motor Show on Thursday June 23, featuring many of the world’s largest motor manufacturers showcasing their latest models, alongside exciting and innovative concepts.

From Friday-Sunday, June 24-26, the famous Goodwood hill will be taken over by a glittering collection of the greatest cars, bikes, drivers and riders from the history of motorsport.

The Revival is the world’s largest and most celebrated historic motor racing and vintage culture event, bringing back to life Goodwood Motor Circuit’s glory days as an active race track from 1948-66. It will take place on September 9-11, 2016.

A host of superstars from the world of motorsport attended Goodwood events this year, including the most iconic grand prix motorcycle racer of all time, Valentino Rossi, alongside fellow World Champions on two wheels Casey Stoner, Freddie Spencer, Kenny Roberts and John Surtees, plus F1 title winners Jenson Button, Damon Hill and Sir Jackie Stewart, US legends Don ‘Big Daddy’ Garlits, Richard Petty and Ken Block, and Le Mans heroes Tom Kristensen, Derek Bell and Emanuele Pirro.

Expect a similarly star-studded line-up in 2016. Key highlights of both events, including the Festival of Speed theme, will be announced in the coming weeks.
