Goodwood Festival of Speed 2022

The UK’s biggest automotive event is back for another year. Here's our show guide

The 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed has now run its course, closing one of its biggest ever weekends. Its central theme ‘The innovators – masterminds of motorsport’ focused on innovation both on and off the circuit, something that was capitalised on by the successful hillclimb record campaign by the McMurtry fan car.

The show's centre feature was designed in celebration of BMW M's 50 year anniversary, showcasing some of the marque's most iconic models and introducing new ones, including the eagerly awaited M3 Touring.

This year’s festival also celebrated the engineers, designers and drivers that broke through barriers to arrive at significant milestones in development and engineering. A number of icons of automotive development will make their way up the famous Goodwood hill on Sunday’s Shootout, including the McMurtry Spéirling took the outright hillclimb record.

As every year, the event showcased all sorts of exotica including the Czinger 21C hypercar, all-electric Hispano Suiza, a total of five McLaren F1s on the Cartier lawn, a handful of Ferrari 250s and plenty of modern Formula 1 cars to boot – the new Prodrive P25 22B restomod was also on show.

The event also featured a raft of new and unreleased performance cars on both static display and driving up the famous hillclimb, with everything from the Lucid Air to the BMW M4 CSL and Porsche's 992 911 Sport Classic on display. First introduced in 2021, ‘Electric Avenue’ also made a return in 2022 to showcase the very latest all-electric models.

Founder of the Festival of Speed, the Duke of Richmond said: ‘This year’s Festival theme – ‘The Innovators – Masterminds of Motorsport’ – allows us to celebrate some of the greatest achievements in history, while also highlighting the event’s evolving focus on future technology.

Just as race-inspired innovations such as four-valve engines, monocoque chassis and turbocharging have shaped the past and present of the cars we drive in the real world, so electrification, autonomy and other new technologies – the development of which is accelerated by the white heat of competition – will have a profound effect on the future of personal mobility.’

Both Festival of Speed and Revival will partner with two new charities for 2022, Sir Jackie Stewart’s Race Against Dementia and Aldingbourne Trust.
