Famous names aplenty at this year’s Festival of Speed

Written by: Neil

It's one of the most highly-anticipated annual celebrations of motoring here in the UK, so forgive our excitement for this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed!

With an array of famous names now confirmed to be taking to the track over the course of this special event, the Petrol News team really can't wait for the action to get underway on the final weekend in June.

Big name stars from across the realm of motorsport will be riding and driving in a wealth of races across the weekend's festivities, making it a highly enjoyable spectacle for all those lucky enough to have tickets.

Current Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 ace Valtteri Bottas, Goodwood Hill Climb record holder Nick Heidfeld, former WRC and F1 driver Robert Kubica and three-time British Touring Car champion Matt Neal will be just some of the stars to look out for.

And it's not just our heroes of motorsport that will be at this year's Goodwood, as Mr Bean himself (actor, comedian, car lover and confirmed petrolhead Rowan Atkinson) will be a judge in the renowned Style et Luxe Cartier Lawn concours d'elegance.

Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, adds: "With so many famous names on track and around the venue, as well as some of the finest automobiles from around the world, attendees are sure to have plenty to see and enjoy at this Goodwood Festival of Speed."
