Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 - July 12th-15th

Ive been to this a few times before- great stalls and lots of them, and quite a few of the major manufacturers in attendance with their top models
A bit of racing up the hill, access to some of the buildings, bit pricey on the food and drink front though

Came home with a multi folding aluminium ladder one year- LOL

Thursday is usually the cheapest day, (And quietest cos a work day) so i will probably go to that- THURSDAY 12th July- usually called the Moving motor show- if you get there early u can even get free test drives up the straight.

Get my tickets through the CSSC club at £20 each- maybe you are a member of a Club and can get cheap tickets too

Be good to meet up with any other Cliosport members that go there

We went for three days last year, by contrast I ignored most of the stalls and a lot of the new stuff and enjoyed watching the historic hillclimbing and the older formula cars etc in the paddock. Well worth the effort to go, but will likely leave it a couple of years before I go again to allow some change.

Quite fancy the revival next year!

Yes, many go for the old crocks and they are nice to look and listen too, wheras i prefer the bang up to date new stuff. some so new it doesnt event get built (VW R400)

Edit- Tickets for the Thursday for me n the Mrs have been bought :)
might even be looking for a new motor at the show..... only to compliment the Clio of course ;)

Hi Chris,
I'll pop along on the Thursday, I don't normally bother with the other days at the FOS as I tend to prefer the revival and members meeting.

Would be good to meet some CS members there and go for a beer.

Hoping to get some tickets for Saturday.

Any advice on parking? I guess I’ll be aiming for a public car park, unless you can pay to park somewhere more convenient?

What kind of time do I need to arrive?

great day yesterday- was even offered a test drive up the hill in a new Honda Civic Type R at 320bhp. (So took the opportunity obvs)

Thanks to Mike (FatRS) on here for sorting that- lovely motor

Fabulous- stacks stalls and dealers there- PORSCHE 70yr anniversary, and weather held pretty much

Hope all you that go today and over the weekend have fun....

Food and drink still bleeding pricey- so take some food n drink

I went about ten years ago. Have wondered about going again, but it seems to be turning into more of a motor show for OEMs, rather than a haven for old race cars, so not so sure. All I remember from last time I went is that it was a bloody long walk to the top of the hill...

I'm going on Sunday now, don't think I would have paid to go there but I work in motorsport so managed to get passes.

Haven't been for a few years, I'm going to try and watch a bit more of the action on the hill this time.

Picked up two tickets for Sunday on a whim yesterday.

Something I say I’m going to go to every year but I’ve never been.

Looking forward to it, especially seeing the new Singer in the flesh/metal.

Any F40’s there?
Yep, there was a whole specific collection of Ferraris around a dozen, and think I saw an F40 in the Supercar paddock. There sure were some motors there. Oh, and a dozen helicopters coming and going

There were McLarens queing on front and behind me to go up the hill, and I asked my passenger who was driving them, he just said prospective purchasers at around 1/3rd of a mill each!

and some say we are almost bankrupt as a nation- well we may be as a nation, but theres a fair few people worth multi millions that's for sure
(Gets ready for a Corbynesque rant lol)

Really, bugger I’ve missed it if there was an F40. Walked round the super car paddock yesterday and didn’t see it.

My favorite two cars so far have been these (yes I like 911’s)
