The Festival of Speed is the highlight, but there's a lot more to look forward to in 2023.
Every year, the Goodwood Festival of Speed amazes the public with incredible displays, stunning views, and incredible cars. This year, BMW M headlined the event in celebration of 50 years of existence, bringing with it the BMW M4 CSL, but we're already in the final quarter of the year, and it's time to look ahead to a special celebration program for 2023.
Next year will see Goodwood celebrate 75 years since the Motor Circuit opened in 1948, 30 years of the Festival of Speed, and 25 years of the Goodwood Revival. It's also been a quarter of a century since the inception of the Goodwood Road Racing Club.
In 2023, the Festival of Speed will see the return of the increasingly popular Electric Avenue showcase, which obviously highlights the latest and greatest from the world of EVs, alongside Future Lab, a display of what technology to expect in the coming years and decades. The traditional hill climb will also take place, but it's unlikely that anyone will be able to beat the McMurty Speirling EV, an electric racer that decimated the 23-year hill record with a time of just 39.08 seconds.
The Festival of Speed will be held from July 13-16 , followed by the 25th edition of the Goodwood Revival on September 8-10. Tickets for both events go on sale to the general public on November 7 at 9am.
"Following a spectacular season at Goodwood, we're delighted to announce the dates of our 2023 motorsport events as we start preparing for an exhilarating year both on and off the track," said the Duke of Richmond, founder of Goodwood's motorsport events. "2023 is already set to be very special [...] it's certainly going to be an unmissable year."
It will still be a little while before manufacturers begin confirming their attendance and what they will bring to the 2023 event, but we expect to see Singer, Gunther Werks, Bugatti, Koenigsegg, and many more of the world's best automakers once again.
