LORD March has today (Friday, October 11) announced the provisional dates for next year’s two leading Goodwood motoring events.

At this stage the dates for Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival are provisional, pending ratification by the FIA of the 2014 Formula 1 calendar in December.

The 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed will take place from Thursday, June 26, to Sunday, June 29.

“The 2014 festival promises to be packed with action and excitement, as the planet’s most glamorous racing machinery and famous drivers gather together in the beautiful surroundings of Goodwood Park,” said a spokesman.

“The theme for the 2014 festival will be announced very shortly.”

It will open with the Moving Motor Show, to give new car buyers and motoring enthusiasts the opportunity to see the very latest models up close and in many cases, drive them on a dedicated vehicle-evaluation route within the grounds of the Goodwood Estate, including the revered hillclimb.

Goodwood Revival is set for the weekend of September 12 to September 14.

“The sell-out Revival truly is a magical step back in time, celebrating the halcyon days of motor racing as it used to be, with all of the accompanying spectacle and glamour of the era,” said the spokesman.

“Competitors and spectators alike dress in period fashions, with the finest sights and entertainment of the pre-1966 era for all to enjoy.”

In addition, Lord March has also confirmed the dates for the 72nd Goodwood Members’ Meeting, to be held on March 29 to March 30, exclusively for GRRC (Goodwood Road Racing Club) members at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

As in previous years, admission to Goodwood motor sport events will be strictly by advance ticket only, with 2014 ticket sales commencing at 9am on Thursday, October 31, this year.

Young people aged 13 to 21 can buy Festival of Speed and Revival tickets for half price.

Children under 12 and car parking remain free.

The price of adult entry tickets starts from £27.

Tickets, grandstand seats, camping and other products for the 2014 Festival of Speed, Moving Motor Show and Goodwood Revival can be ordered from 9am on Thursday, October 31, at www.goodwood.com/motorsport or via the ticket hotline by calling 01243 755055.
