While the Subaru XV e-Boxer is far from class-leading – the CVT gearbox being the main issue – it offers an interesting and unique alternative to the norm.

Goodwood Motorsport has announced provisional dates for its two flagship motorsport events for 2018 – the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival.

The dates are subject to the final Formula One calendar being released later this year, so there may be movement to the dates below (as happened this year). The dates for the Members’ Meeting in March are final as that pre-dates the opening of the F1 season.

76th Members Meeting: 17-18 March 2018
Goodwood Festival of Speed & Moving Motor Show: 12-15 July 2018
Goodwood Revival: 7-9 September 2018

Tickets for the 76th Members’ Meeting are on sale now, while the two big events will go on sale in the next month or so. Tickets seem to sell out earlier and earlier every year (especially Saturday tickets), so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.

   

2018 marks 20 years of the Goodwood Road Racing Club (GRRC) and the 25th Anniversary of the Festival of Speed, so Goodwood is sure to celebrate by putting on an even bigger show than usual.

The world’s top motorsport teams flock to Goodwood for the Festival of Speed each year, with most of the top F1 teams represented. Both Porsche and Audi have sent their winning Le Mans cars almost directly from the Sarthe circuit up to Goodwood for the last decade or more, usually still covered in dirt and grime from the world’s toughest race. The rally stage grows larger every year, and the other assorted attractions never fail to please the massive crowds.

The Goodwood Revival continues to attract some of the finest historic racing cars in the world, along with a formidable field of world-class drivers going wheel to wheel in what must be an insurance company’s nightmare. Make an effort to get into period costume and you’ll feel much more at home – this year, there seemed to be more people who didn’t bother getting dressed up and they looked completely out of place among the 1940s-1960s efforts of everyone else.
