Back in the spring, the organizers of the “Festival of Speed” in Goodwood decided to postpone the annual racing event for an indefinite period, and finally this weekend the traditional event will be held in a new virtual format – without an audience in the stands and under a new name.
In 2020 it will be SpeedWeek, i.e. “Speed Week”, and motorsport fans around the world will be able to follow the events on the track in Goodwood online. The program is very diverse, on each of the three days, from October 16 to 18, from morning to evening, a variety of demonstration races, races, and meetings with celebrities will take place on the track.
The audience, as always, will see unique historical cars, unless they can feel the characteristic aromas of gasoline, hot oil and burnt rubber.
One of the main presenters of the holiday will be Mark Webber, a former Formula 1 driver. For example, on Friday he will talk about the heroes of motorsport of different years who were one step away from the title, but their dream was not destined to come true. Presumably, the Australian, who took third place three times at the end of the season, will also tell his story, since the program states that he will “share painful memories.”
