Motorsport events stopping because of a global pandemic? Not a bit of it - if you’re Goodwood Motor Circuit that is. Always one of our most popular venues here on Driving Experience, the historic motor racing circuit in East Sussex is innovating in these unusual times, and taking things virtual for their brand new event next month.
Running from Friday 16th October - Sunday 18th October 2020, Goodwood SpeedWeek is a totally virtual and streamed festival that motor racing enthusiasts here in the UK and all over the world will be able to enjoy. And whilst entry to the public will be closed off for this event, it’ll give them a chance to experience some incredible sets of wheels like never before.
All the major races from their regular yearly Revival festival will be featured - including the RAC TT Celebration for Grand Tourer performance cars, and the St Mary’s Trophy Cup, as well as the debut of the new Toyota GR Yaris on their rally stage.
And that’s not all, as a host of big names have been lined up to host the coverage online, including X Factor and BBC Radio 2 favourite Dermot O’Leary, former Top Gear star Rory Reid and Capital FM breakfast host Siân Welby.
It looks set to be a great weekend of motoring events, but rest assured there’s still a great selection of driving experience days at glorious Goodwood that you can be looking forward to before and after SpeedWeek takes place.
This includes the range of venue exclusive Supercar Experiences, starting from just £65, which offers anywhere from 2 to 4 lap packages out on the iconic circuit, including much sought after marques like the Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Ferrari 430 amongst many others.
But there’s also a special Drifting stage at Goodwood, perfect to enjoy a seriously good selection of drifting days that are more sideways than straights and hairpins, with half days and Blast and Thrill packages in a custom prepared Nissan 350Z drift car, starting from just £30.
Also just newly launched here are a selection of American Truck Driving packages, in both Taster (1 lap) and Thrill (2 lap) experiences for both Adult and Junior drivers to enjoy - a perfect day to realise those dreams of trucking in some Stateside heavyweights like Kenworth and Ford F650 pick up trucks.
So whether it’s to follow in the tyre marks of some motor racing legends, or just to try a different set of wheels out that you won’t find anywhere else, driving experience days at Goodwood are so varied.
