Nick Mason returns to Goodwood Festival of Speed for 2010 event Print E-mail
Written by Matt

Nick Mason at Goodwood Festival of SpeedNick Mason is one of the many drivers who will be taking part in the 2010 Goodwood Festival Of Speed, which is taking place over the next three days (July 2nd, 3rd and 4th). The event is a must-attend annual celebration of motor racing held in Sussex on an Earl's estate. Gathering cars (and bikes), drivers, and enthusiasts from all over the world, the event celebrates motor racing from the very early days, through to the very latest F1 cars. It is held in the grounds of Lord March's estate, near Chichester, Sussex, in the south of England, and has static displays, demonstration runs, and timed runs, up the hill past Goodwood House. It's a wonderful event, and words do not pay it justice!

Nick Mason is a regular each year, having driven a range of classic cars from his and other's collections. At this year's event he will again be taking the wheel of an Auto Union D-type - an incredibly rare classic, Grand Prix winning racing car from 1939, which should excite many of the petrolheads in the 150,000-strong crowd!

Nick Mason at Goodwood Festival of SpeedThe last couple of years he has taken a D-type up the hill [click thumbnail, left and right], and he remarked that it was "fairly good for an old banger!"

Full details of the Festival can be found at www.Goodwood.co.uk/fos, where you can also still purchase your tickets for the event. Entrance is by advance purchased ticket only, and there is plenty of free parking to be found at the venue, reached easily from the main A27 coast road in Sussex.

In 2004, a lavish book was written to commemorate the Festival, and included within its pages is an article by Nick Mason, along with pictures of him at the event. Click here to see our review of the book.
