The Festival of Speed opens with the Moving Motor Show and features speed runs up Goodwood hill. The Revival claims to be the “world’s largest historic motor racing and vintage culture event, bringing back to life Goodwood Motor Circuit’s glory days (1948-1966).”

Goodwood said it will announce “key highlights” of both events in the coming weeks.

Another major event at the circuit, the Members Meet of the Goodwood Road Racing club, is scheduled for March 19-20, 2016.
