If you can’t be there this year, then don’t fret – we’ll be sharing all the highlights over on our social channels. Follow along and you’ll feel like you’re there with us.
What's going on?
Step into the wonderful, many-sided world of MINI. Head to our Goodwood stand to find something right up your street, from award-winning barbers, to the thrilling John Cooper Works garage, to our eclectic Lifestyle shop. You can even get up close to our classic 1962 Mini Issi.
Explore the whole area, where you’ll find opportunities to win a MINI Folding Bike and a family annual pass to Longleat. Plus, if you’re visiting on Saturday, you’ll have the chance to meet motorsport legend Paddy Hopkirk.
Visit the MINI village.
Take a wander down our handcrafted street, which houses a host of shops and experiences. Stop by at MINI Lifestyle to treat yourself to some merchandise, dance along to some live music and stop by for some refreshments at the Electric Café (don’t forget to flash your MINI keys for complimentary treats).
Enjoy a taste of formula e.
How could we head to the Festival of Speed without bringing our latest motorsport creation? Head to the First Glance Paddock to meet Formula E’s freshest safety car – the MINI Electric Pacesetter. Inspired by our decades of racing experience and our electric know-how, the Pacesetter doesn’t need petrol to make an impact. It’ll be taking on the Hillclimb twice daily, alongside our John Cooper Works Hatch, with Charlie Cooper at the helm.
Go to the John Cooper Works garage.
You may be familiar with our John Cooper Works range, but do you know about the legend who inspired it? Make your way to the John Cooper Works garage to find out about where it all began, and also catch appearances from 1964 Monte Carlo Rally winner Paddy Hopkirk, and John’s grandson Charlie Cooper.
Win big with the MINI Countryman.
Be transported into a woodland scene when you stop by to meet the MINI Countryman. Discover its spacious interior and adventurous nature – and don’t forget to enter our Big Days Out competition to win an annual family pass to Longleat before you go.
Take in the classic MINI on display.
A very special, restored vintage MINI will be with us this year. The classic 1962 ‘Issi’ – named after MINI founder Alex Issigonis – will be on display for you to come and take pictures with. Whether you’re a MINI fan or a classic car enthusiast, you won’t want to miss it.
Meet the modern MINIs.
This is your chance to explore the MINI range up close, and meet the models you’ve only seen in pictures. Take in the spacious MINI Countryman and get familiar with the feel-good MINI Electric. Visit the Switch Lounge to ask our experts more about living with an electric car.
Experience the big benefits of our Tiny Forests.
Come have a photo with our lush, living wall. A celebration of our Tiny Forests initiative, the living wall is where you can find out more about our Earthwatch Europe collaboration.
Our top tips for making the most out of Goodwood.
Start your day right. Visit Murdock barbers at the MINI stand to get yourself looking and feeling fresh.
When you – or your phone – start to flag, stop by the MINI Electric Café to recharge. We’ll have complimentary coffee and charging points. Simply show us your MINI keys and let us take care of you.
The Michelin Supercar Paddock will be home to some of the most breath-taking (and expensive) cars at the festival. Be sure to check them out.
The Forest Rally Stage isn’t to be missed. Stop by to witness the world’s most iconic rally cars in action, tearing through the stage.
There's free parking. Ignore your sat nav and instead follow the signs to your nearest car park.
Goodwood Radio makes for the perfect soundtrack for your journey to the festival, simply tune your radio to 87.7FM for updates from the Festival.
You’ll be doing plenty of walking and spending a lot of time outside, so wear comfortable shoes and pack the sunscreen (and maybe an umbrella too – it is England, after all).
The Goodwood Festival of Speed app is a super handy tool for up-to-date information. Download it before you set off.
