Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016
We’ll be reporting live from #GoodwoodFOS
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is arguably the biggest car show of the year, at least in the UK. Over three days, four if you count the Moving Motor Show, all the biggest brands pitch up with massive structures to show off their latest and greatest new models. Goodwood FOS is exceptional in scale, so most manufacturers bring their entire range of cars along for you to examine up-close while the events team stand behind you buffing away all your finger prints.
Running through the centre of the event is the legendary Hill-climb where cars from all categories try to set a new fastest time. If you’re lucky, during the Moving Motor Show you may be able to talk yourself into driving one of the latest and greatest cars up the hill, although you’re unlikely to be allowed to set a hot time.
Starting in 1993, Goodwood House has been home to the Festival of Speed and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. There’s usually an obligatory fly-pass of sorts and every year, there’s some sort of speed-related theme and main sponsor. This year the theme is ‘Full Throttle – The Endless Pursuit of Power’ with the main brand being BMW which is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
- We will be there at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed
The best part of all this is zero60 Cars will be there. We’ll be reporting live from the Moving Motor Show on Thursday 23 June, bringing you every brand, stand by stand, and taking a look at all the latest cars. We’ll be there all day, looking at every car from all the manufacturers attending this year, including Audi, Jaguar and, of course, BMW. Continue to follow us throughout the weekend for more content from the Festival of Speed, including what we find in the supercar paddock and even mini reviews on some of the latest cars.
The Moving Motor Show is the ideal time to take a real close, serious look at all the cars on display. During the weekend the event gets busy and you’ll be lucky to even see the cars on show through the crowds. We’ll be getting up close to all the cars worth mentioning and having a good look around both inside and out.
Some models we’re looking forward to seeing in person are the new Audi Q2 and the new Audi R8 Spyder; the Audi stand in general is known for being one of the biggest of the show and for showing off at least one brand-new model. We'll also be looking out for the BMW M2 Coupé. The Mazda MX-5 RF is another one on our ‘must-find’ list as this will be the first time in the UK we’ll be able to get up-close to Mazda’s new hardtop. Take a look at our Goodwood Festival of Speed Preview.
To get all this and a whole lot more, simply follow us on Twitter or Instagram – we’ll be posting different content to both so for the best look at the whole of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, make sure you’re following us.
