Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012 Theme: ‘Young Guns – Born to Win’

Lord March has confirmed the theme for the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed: ‘Young Guns – Born to Win’.

Held next year between the 28th June and 1st July, the event will celebrate those who have made an immediate impact on motorsport.

The 2012 Festival will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of Lotus Engineering, paying close attention to Colin Chapman’s influence on Formula One.

The usual display of motoring legends, both cars and drivers, will be present at the show, and the latest race and road cars will take to the famous festival hill climb.

Following on from last year’s success, the Moving Motor Show and Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ concours d’elegance will be held next to the famous Goodwood House.

Motoring enthusiasts with an eye on the future will be able to take a glimpse at new automotive technology at the FoS-TECH.

Goodwood Festival of Speed founder Lord March says: “I am really looking forward to having so many great cars and drivers here at the Festival of Speed to celebrate our 2012 ‘Young Guns’ theme. For me it is always magical to see so many of the world’s greatest drivers, riders and machines in action.”

Tickets for both the Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival (14th-16th September) will go on sale at 9am on 29th October.

The ‘Young Persons’ ticket trialled by Goodwood in 2011 will be continued for next year, with the 13-18 age range now extended up to 21 years of age. Children of 12 years or under remain free of charge, as does all car parking.
