Goodwood Festival of Speed

Being part of the bustling world which is the UK events industry it's always a brilliant opportunity to explore and attend some of the most amazing exhibitions and shows around the world. Recently Carol attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed which is an annual event based in the south of England showcasing the best of motor sport and car culture. The Festival of Speed 2013 was the celebration of 20 years of the event, with automotive enthusiasts travelling from around the globe to attend the entire atmosphere was simply fantastic. One attraction which caught many eye's was the most expensive Ferrari and Airstream set up pictured below. After working in the events and tours industry for many years this is a lavish expense people in the trade might only dream of! 

Goodwood Festival of Speed

''The 2013 Festival of Speed theme celebrated the best of the first 20 years of this, the world’s most popular motor sport and car culture event. Goodwood focused on highlights from the Festival’s glittering history, featuring the biggest, best, fastest, loudest and most outrageous vehicles of all time.
Goodwood recaptured many of the outstanding Festival of Speed moments from the 1993-2012 era, with great cars from around the world making a rare return to the UK; famous car/driver pairings reunited, for a weekend not to be missed.''

The 'Vintage at Goodwood' festival is also a delightful event held in the same location, which celebrates the history of British culture in the 40's, 50's and 60's. With stunning fashions and classic cars it really does transport you back in time to days where teddy boys and milkshake girls came together to dance all night to rock and roll. With make up and hair stylists to live bands and exhibitions, the Vintage at Goodwood event is a calender highlight for all.
