Seven Formula 1 teams confirmed for Goodwood's Festival of Speed
Seven current Formula 1 teams have now been confirmed for Goodwood's Festival of Speed next month.
Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Force India, McLaren, Red Bull, Renault and Williams will be joining the 1.16 mile hill-climb course in June – bringing the sights and sounds of the World Championships to West Sussex.
The Festival of Speed is the only event, other than the British Grand Prix, where British fans can see so many F1 cars in action in one place, with an unrivalled access to both the cars and the drivers.
Already confirmed to appear at this year’s Festival are Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg – who also took victory in last year’s Le Mans 24 Hours with Porsche – and 2009 World Champion Jenson Button, with many more expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
While no longer an active F1 driver, Sky Sports F1 commentator Martin Brundle will be taking Button’s championship-winning Brawn BGP 001 up the hill – which hasn’t been seen running since 2009.
Lord March said: “There are more top F1 teams here than ever before and I am very pleased to hear that Jenson Button’s already confirmed his appearance just before the British Grand Prix with his McLaren-Honda.”
Tickets for the event are selling fast, with Saturday tickets now officially sold out, so to avoid disappointment visit ticketing.goodwood.com or phone 01243 755055.
