Goodwood Festival of Speed 2022 dates announced
The UK’s biggest automotive event has been confirmed for another year, with the 2022 Festival of Speed set for June
Dates for the next event have been announced for the 2022’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, set for June 23-26, with tickets to go on sale to the general public from Monday November 8. The Festival of Speed made a full comeback in 2021, following Goodwood’s online Speedweek event in 2020 that was put on in place of the full public event for obvious reasons.
As always, the event will feature a raft of new and unreleased performance cars on both static display and driving up the famous hillclimb, with priceless historics, motorsport icons and cutting-edge concepts also in attendance. First introduced in 2021, ‘Electric Avenue’ is confirmed to be making a return in 2022 to showcase the very latest all-electric models.
Both Festival of Speed and Revival will partner with two new charities for 2022, Sir Jackie Stewart’s Race Against Dementia and Aldingbourne Trust. Further details on next year’s events will be announced in due course, but considering the impressive scale of 2021’s restricted Festival of Speed, a ‘full capacity’ event in 2022 should be back up to full strength.
The Duke of Richmond, host of the Festival of Speed said: ‘I am thrilled that our much-loved, sell-out motorsport events will be making a spectacular return in 2022. Thank you to everyone who attended and partnered with the Festival of Speed, Revival and Members’ Meeting this year. Your loyalty and support after a challenging 18 months made them more special than ever, and we can’t wait to see you back at Goodwood again next year. It really will be a season not to miss.’
Also announced were dates for the 79th Members’ Meeting and Revival, with these events set to take place on April 9-10 and September 16-18 respectively. Tickets for all three will go on sale on November 8, and as we saw in 2021, a ‘Ticket Guarantee’ allows for full refunds or ticket transfers should the government halt proceedings due to the pandemic.
