Rev Up Your Engines: Goodwood Festival of Speed 2023 Set to Celebrate 75 Years of Automotive History in Style

  • 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed to honor Porsche’s 75th anniversary with a diverse range of past and present models on display, including the latest 992 GT3 RS.
  • The Festival will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with an unprecedented assemblage of race cars and legends.

The Porsche 356 was the first in an incredible run of road and race vehicles from Stuttgart, and it is 75 years old this year. To commemorate the event, the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed will highlight the renowned German manufacturer by exhibiting a diverse range of Porsches from the past and present.

As is customary, a massive sculpture will be erected in honour of this year’s famed marque, which has previously led the Festival of Speed three times, most recently in 2018. This year’s event will feature a display of Porsche’s most revered models being driven up Goodwood Hill, including the latest 992 GT3 RS.

Porsche’s anniversary coincides with the Festival’s 30th year, which is expected to expand on the success of the full capacity crowd in 2022. Though more features have yet to be disclosed, the 2023 Festival of Speed will once again feature the iconic Electric Avenue, with new metal and motorsport icons on display from July 13-16.

The 30th Festival of Speed will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with an unprecedented assemblage of race cars and legends. ‘It’s remarkable that Le Mans has been holding this magnificent race for 100 years,’ remarked nine-time Le Mans champion Tom Kristensen. I always like visiting Goodwood and Le Mans and have had the honour of driving amazing automobiles there. It was fantastic to see all of the Le Mans winners at Revival this year, and I’m already looking forward to the reunion next year. I’m confident it will be a memorable occasion.’

The 25th Goodwood Revival will also take place in 2023, from September 8 to 10. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was acknowledged at the 2022 event, which marked a decade of the Settrington Cup (the children’s pedal car race) and three days of some of the most spectacular track action on the year.

‘Following a spectacular season at Goodwood, we’re happy to announce the dates of our 2023 motorsport events, as we begin planning for an incredible year both on and off the track,’ said The Duke of Richmond, originator of Goodwood’s motorsport events. 2023 is already shaping up to be a very unique year as we celebrate 75 years of motorsport at Goodwood, including 25 years of the Goodwood Road Racing Club, 30 years of the Festival of Speed, and 25 years of Revival.’

As in past years, children aged 12 and under are admitted free, and a Young Person ticket is offered for individuals aged 13 to 21.
