2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed moves dates for German Grand PrixSun, 16 Dec 2012
The Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2013 has been rescheduled to avoid clashing with the 2013 German Grand Prix.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed – and the ultimate test drives that is the Moving Motor Show – is perhaps the best event of its kind in the world. And one of the keys to its success is the ongoing attendance at the FoS by Formula One teams and their personnel.
So when Bernie Ecclsetone’s F1 calendar schedulers moved the 2013 German Grand Prix forward by two weeks to accommodate an extra European Grand Prix, the dates (weekend of 7th July 2013) clashed with the Festival of Speed so, to make sure the F1 Circus could attend Goodwood in force, the dates for the 2013 Festival of Speed have been changed to the 12-14 July 2013, with the MMS on 11th July.
If you’ve already bought tickets for next year’s Festival of Speed they’re still valid - just for the revised dates – so you don’t need to do anything, but if you have problems with the new dates you can contact the Goodwood Festival of Speed ticket office on +44(0)1243 755055 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s a pragmatic move by the Goodwood organisers to make sure the FoS is as special as ever in 2013 – especially as 2013 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Festival of Speed.
