Russ-Turner should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Hi folks,

Just planning ahead really. Have been going for the last three years and we love it. Should be a few of us going this year, and the plan is to sit in a grandstand on the Saturday and watch the action having a few drinks, camp overnight, then have a wonder around on the Sunday to see all of the stands and mini events etc. The problem is that the nearest camping is four miles away. This will prove troublesome if it's 1) dark and 2) we're hammered. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to camp a stones throw away from the grounds? We are probably only talking a couple of tents and two cars maximum? Thanks in advance, Russ.

I have a related question - aren't vintage cars and attire required throughout the venue...(excluding car parks)?

A solution may be to obtain/rent a late-50's style Vespa for on-site transport?

Sound fun.

Seoigh- Your thinking of the revival meeting in september.

There must be some camping facilities nearby. Cant see you being allowed to camp in the grounds on security reasons.

Mea Culpa...'case of 'tunnel vision' here...we salivate at videos of Lord March's big fete' ,and find it too easy to forget that there are other events held there throughout the year.

Thanks.

On this day next month the Festival of Speed will begin. Just thought I'd bring this thread back up to see if anyone is going.

I have tickets for all three days but am still unsure about transport and accomadation.

I'll likely spend most of the three days in the paddocks with my camera (and hopefully a new wide-angle lens by then) with a walk through the rally stage as well as the various shops and stalls at some point.

You cannot camp in the grounds unless the rules have changed (which I doubt.) I remember camping in the car park of the Chichester Sainsburys a few years ago!

I'm doing the Friday for the paddocks, assuming it's not as crowded as last year, and the rally stage. Sunday we have grandstand tickets so will be close to the track for shooting the runs.

Highlight of the year

Gerben24 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
It will be my first time this year. Never been to Goodwood, so dont know what to expect. We were unable to score any grandstand tickets. Looking forward to it!

You'll still get to see what, for me, makes Goodwood so special, the paddocks. I have barely been near the hill in three years ...

I'd love to go to the Festival but don't think I can afford to fork out for tickets and there doesn't seem to be any promotions like there was last year. Never mind, looks like I'm missing out this year.

For someone that's supposed to have weekends off...they're now trying to make me work for FoS too! Which means missing that and DTM....

I want to go!

I thought one of the national papers (Daily Telegraph?) were giving away free tickets for the Friday as they did last year?

Have you tried either the Goodwood website for camp sites or tried calling them for help and information?

I had a look at the prices earlier and was £45 for the Sunday for GA...

I agree with Owain - you don't need grandstand tickets at all! The paddock, all the good spectator vantage points, the rally stage (which I am told is even larger this year) , the Concourse d'Elegance... Too much to see - you can sit on your butt any other time of the year
