Next year the Festival of Speed will return on July 8-11, with 2020’s planned theme of ‘The Maestros – Motorsport’s Great All-Rounders’ featuring drivers, teams and manufacturers who have succeeded across a variety of motorsport disciplines.Legendary American racer Mario Andretti has already confirmed his attendance and said: ‘Goodwood in July sounds wonderful to me right now. I welcome the invitation and look forward to being there for the third time. It is truly one of the most fan-friendly motorsports events. A very unique jewel. There is simply nothing like it on the planet.’Finally, the Goodwood Revival takes place on September 17-19, recreating the golden age of the Goodwood Motor Circuit between 1948 and 1966, when legends such as Stirling Moss, John Surtees, Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart regularly battled it out on the spectacular track.

Those attending will see some of the most beautiful and valuable cars of all time racing in favourites such as the RAC TT Celebration and the newly-renamed Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy.Looking forward to welcoming fans back to Goodwood next year, the Duke of Richmond said: ‘More than anything else it is the people who make our events so special; the drivers, the teams, our staff and above all the fans.

‘We were incredibly disappointed not to be able to welcome them to our much-loved events in 2020. Now we are thrilled to be able to announce that all three motorsport events are planned to be back next year.‘Thank you to all our loyal followers who either rolled over their tickets or joined the Goodwood Supporters’ Association, which helped us immeasurably in a very tough year. We absolutely cannot wait to see them and plenty of new fans in 2021.’Tickets for 2021 events go on sale to the public in February, but as many motorsport fans elected to carry their 2020 places forward to 2021, tickets will be limited.For more information, visit www.goodwood.com/motorsport/
