Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021

I have just booked our tickets for a family day-out on the Sunday. I haven’t been for years, but with the featured marque being Lotus and the launch of the new Emira, they have tempted me back. I wonder if they’ll be a special group of historical Lotus cars heading up the hill, as well as the central feature?

Holy crap, I was just about to reply with exactly that.  I also have matching slingback wellies.

Maybe we all need to wear matching shorts so we can spot/avoid each other

CTL usually get invited, so I'd expect to see several historic Lotus F1 cars running up the hill.  Last time Lotus was featured marque there were loads on display as well as on the hill.

I might try and get tickets, never been before but the Lotus spotlight is drawing me in!

 

Excuse my ignorance but will the Emira be there everyday? Will it have a run up the hill everyday?

 

Is the normal parking okay? Presume car enthusiasts will be more careful with regards door prangs etc

 

Interested in a meet-up if I come along too 👍

You'd like to think so wouldn't you. However, large field full of mum trucks and handbags with big brass buckles and excited children. I have to admit I'm assuming nothing and have treated my Lotus to a space in the performance parking area (£29) which I think I ended up in one year without knowing it!

It's a glamour event so you get all sorts. The main parking is a field with same quality of parking care as a supermarket. Also the parking attendants can be hit and miss and you may be crawling up a hill in a field in a traffic jam for a long time... God only knows the mess if it rains!

 

If you can ease that pain for a few quid I would (and did) pay

Either take your normal car for free parking or pay for special parking if taking the Lotus

Booked for Thursday and Friday. :D

Also in Performance Parking West, so I'll need to get my finger out now and get the Evora back on the road after its 14 month hibernation. :o

My car doesn't do hibernation... What it does need after all this rain is a good wash...

Booked for Thursday, spending 2 nights away as I thought a drive from Devon and back on the 1 day was a bit too much. So can spend all of Thursday at the FOS, until the wife gets bored.

There on Thursday, travelling down Wednesday and stopping at the Goodwood Hotel. Anyone know if it is possible to walk into the event from the Hotel?

Coming all the way from Germany if the travel / quarantine / vaccination game plays in our favour. Still have a bunch of tickets from 2020. i'll be there with a group of friends all weekend on the campsite near to the main entrance.

My plan was to take my Jeep Wrangler w. rooftop tent but since Lotus is now in the spotlight I might have to bring one. Just not the perfect car to camp in for 4 days 🤣

It can be described as cosy and intimate... You just need to ask an estate agent.

I don't want anything for them since I bought the weekend bundle knowing that we won't use the sunday tickets.

If I mail them to the UK, the shipping costs is all I want. 

My exchanged tickets haven't physically arrived yet, but Goodwood said they will express ship them up to only five days prior to the event. Right now I still only have the 2020 tickets, so it may take a few more days until I can send them.

That is very, very, very kind of you Heiner. If you do have the three spare, let me know and I can send over any payment to cover any costs for when you receive them.
