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 heldin 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!

Spectators can gain access to the cars and their drivers, allowing them to get up close and personal with the drivers and riders.
