One of the best automotive events of the year is just days away

The annual Goodwood Festival of Speed is a petrolhead’s idea of nirvana, and this year’s event is set to be better than ever.

There is a plethora of exciting things happening over the four day extravaganza, and even our home grown HSV GTS-R will be making an appearance.

Other highlights include the first public appearance of Aston Martin’s bonkers 671kW (900hp) hyper car, The Valkyrie, and Porsche’s Le Mans-winning 919 hybrid LMP1 car, complete with dead bugs and stone chips fresh from the 24 hour race. 

The event will also play host to a star-studded cast from the motoring world.

These stars include: Alan Jones, Valtteri Bottas, Giacomo Agostini, Martin Brundle, Ross Brawn, Emerson Fittipaldi, Nick Heidfeld, Damon Hill, Tom Kristensen, Nick Mason, Hannu Mikkola, Gordon Murray, Tiff Needell, Adrian Newey, Jean Ragnotti, Nico Rosberg and many more.

The event will be covered live on Goodwood’s own website and on YouTube. So, if you’ve got some spare time this weekend, do check it out.
