The Goodwood Festival of Speed is going to be the place this summer to see the latest and fastest supercars from around the globe. Some 180,000 motoring enthusiasts are expected to turn up to what is the largest motoring garden party in the world. It’s a unique summer weekend that brings together an impossibly heady mix of cars, stars and motor sport 'royalty.'

More than 100 top drivers, riders and famous faces to the world’s greatest celebration of motor sport and car culture will be welcomed to the four-day event, just outside of London. Once again, The Festival of Speed has attracted the majority of the current season’s Formula 1 teams and drivers, with at least seven of the 2012 F1 teams confirmed for Goodwood.

Current F1 drivers and leading characters in action at the Festival will include current double World Champion Sebastian Vettel, plus the two previous World Champions, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton. There will also be stars from the world of Grand Prix, rallying and motorcycling.

In association with Michelin, the Supercar Run is a car show with a difference, where visitors can view new models for the first time. Unlike a conventional motor show, the Supercar Run affords a fantastic opportunity not only to exhibit the very latest and best supercars, but also to show them in action on the Goodwood hillclimb.
Cars expected to make their dynamic debuts will include the newest models from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Lotus, Bugatti, Jaguar, and many others. Diners are also catered for at the prestigious event.
