The Goodwood Festival of Speed, one of the biggest celebrations of motor racing in the world, takes place annually in the grounds of Goodwood House, West Sussex. This show, available on Motor Trend OnDemand, provides a holistic view of the festival in its entirety, showcasing the highlights of the event that pretty much engulfs everyone's automotive passions.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a four-day event that takes place in July every year. It features both traditional and modern motorsports, including hill climb racing, rally stage exhibitions, endurance racing, drifting, and many more. The festival attracts thousands of motorsports enthusiasts from all over the world, including Formula 1 teams and drivers, supercar manufacturers, and classic car collectors.

The show takes us through the various displays at the Festival of Speed. From the full-size statues of some of the legendary motor racing drivers to the wide range of cars on display - classic, road-going, and modern racing need it.

One of the hallmark events of the festival is the hill climb, which sees cars and motorcycles of all shapes and sizes attempting to accelerate up a narrow, winding, 1.16-mile course that starts at the front of Goodwood House. The hill climb is a daunting task, which the drivers have to complete without making any mistakes. It's not just about speed, as the drivers also have to consider the corners and difficult gradients to get to the top of the hill in one piece.

Another highlight of the Goodwood Festival of Speed is the Michelin Supercar Paddock. This is an area dedicated to the latest and most exotic supercars from the world's most prestigious car manufacturers. Visitors can get up close and personal with the cars and see them in action on the hill climb. The cars also participate in a timed shootout, known as the Supercar Run, which is a thrilling spectacle for both the drivers and the audience.

Another event that attracts much attention is the rally stage. This is where cars from the golden era of rally racing take on a six-turn circuit on the Goodwood estate's grounds. The rally stage features classic models like the Escort Mk1, Audi Quattro, and Lancia Delta HF Integrale.

The show also showcases the Goodwood Revival. This event is held every September and is a celebration of classic cars and vintage racing. It aims to recreate the atmosphere and glamour of motor racing in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. Visitors are encouraged to dress in period clothing and enjoy the spectacle of classic cars racing around the Goodwood circuit.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed also features various displays and exhibitions from car manufacturers and other companies associated with motorsports. One such exhibition is the FoS Future Lab, which showcases the latest technologies and innovations in the automotive world. Visitors can experience virtual reality, autonomous driving, and other cutting-edge technologies that are revolutionizing the automotive industry.

Overall, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is an unmissable event for any motorsport enthusiast. The show on Motor Trend OnDemand does an excellent job of capturing the atmosphere and excitement of the festival, showcasing the variety of events, cars, and people involved. It's a perfect way to experience all the action of the festival from the comfort of your own home, and it's definitely worth watching.
