Goodwood Festival of Speed - 2009


A credit crunch year with minimal new models released from manufacturers, however the Festival of Speed, more commonly known as FoS never fails to provide a spectacle. One of the most prestigious motoring events in the world and it's not hard to see why with all the different generations of automotive heritage to keep all ages entertained and with the location by the famous Goodwood racecourse even the weather cannot ruin the picturesque hillside.

Jaguar showed off their latest XKR and Land Rover unveiled the new Range Rover Sport (not that I could see much difference). A new model from Infinity, which looked fantastic and is pictured above after the Veyron. Celebrity faces included Derek Bell, Sterling Moss and Peter Fonder (Easy Rider) and various Le Mans drivers of past and present.

Dennis Owen, owner of GSO (Golf and Sporting Occasions) who provides events such as the Grand Prix Ball, is now hosting VIP tables at Goodwood FoS and the Revival events. With excellent reviews I can thoroughly recommend looking at or contacting Dennis at or on 01403 753178. For those with mega bucks to spend, helicopter transfers, 5 star hotels and the best refreshments can be provided all day.
