The home of motoring and technology returns
In a blast from the past, ‘Mansell Mania’ took over Goodwood as Nigel Mansell joined us for the whole
weekend. The 1992 Formula 1 World Champion was reunited with his championship-winning Williams
FW14B for the first time in 30 years and fans saw the iconic ‘Red 5’ storm up the hill as Mansell celebrated
the anniversary of his win. “I have had the most sensational time of my life!”, Mansell said on the balcony
of Goodwood House on Sunday afternoon.
In a year which celebrated “The Innovators - Masterminds of Motorsport”, the Festival of Speed saw one of
its most impressive sculptures to date which paid homage to 50 years of the BMW Motorsport division,
showcasing some of the most iconic models developed by BMW M. The spectacular feature included an E9
3.0 CSL, M1 Procar, V12 LMR, E90 320i WTCC and the BMW M Hybrid V8 – the marque’s new top-level
endurance racing entry, set against the backdrop of Goodwood House.
Goodwood was delighted to welcome several current Formula 1 teams including McLaren F1 Team,
Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 Team and Williams Racing. The F1
Pit Lane presented by Sky hosted a unique space for visitors to see the impressive cars being prepped to
take on the iconic hillclimb, allowing visitors to get up close with the drivers and working engineers. Wowing
the crowds, drivers George Russell, Esteban Gutierrez and Zhou Guanyu stopped for photos and autographs
before tackling the hill. The F1 Pit Lane also hosted Mahindra Racing’s Gen3 Formula E car as well as
MissionH24’s ground-breaking hydrogen-powered endurance race car, the LMPH2G.
The Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ Lawn featured a highly diverse selection of cars, and the judging panel comprised
people from the worlds of art, design, sport and media. ‘Best in Show’ was taken by the 1965 Ferrari 275
GTB/4, from a private collection.
