  • It takes place between the 23rd and 26th June 2016 in West Sussex, England
  • This year’s festival is themed “Full Throttle – The Endless Pursuit of Power”
  • The Goodwood Festival of Speed was founded in 1993 by Lord March in order to bring motor racing back to the Goodwood estate

ZURICH, June 22, 2016At the 23rd Goodwood Festival of Speed Chevrolet will take part with the Corvette Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06 and the all-new Sixth Generation Camaro. “The Goodwood Festival is the largest event of its kind. An unrivaled come together of stars, motorsport royalty and world’s prestigious cars, like the sixth-generation Camaro” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro Chief Engineer.   

The theme for this year’s Festival of Speed is „Full Throttle - The Endless Pursuit of Power“. The topic celebrates the most powerful competition cars in the history of motor sports and their heroic drivers. Visitors will see an impressive collection of cars and some very interesting personalities behind them, like 2009 world champion Jenson Button, multiple F1 Grand prix winner Mark Webber or F1 legend Sir Stirling Moss.

Lord March, Festival of Speed founder, said: “This year’s Festival will see the wildest, fastest, craziest, baddest cars and bikes ever to ascend the Goodwood Hill. Not to mention of course the heroes that tamed those mighty machines. There will be lots of noise, speed, colour and, of course, power. That’s what the Festival of Speed’s all about. I’m really excited about it and hope it will be an absolutely spectacular and memorable weekend.”

In dependence on his grandfather’s private Hillclimb for the Lancia Car Club in 1936, Charles March created the Festival of Speed in 1993, as a platform to show off modern and heritage cars. Today the 1.6 mile Hillclimb is the most iconic aspect of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed and is challenging world's greatest drivers, sitting behind rare and priceless motor racing vehicles. These cars can be inspected point-blank by all guests on the paddocks during the weekend.
