Earmarked by Jaguar’s presence by way of a massive culinary sculpture honoring fifty years of the E-type, Goodwood’s Festival of Speed is the world’s largest and most diverse celebration of the history of motorsports and automotive culture. With nearly 175,000 in attendance over three days on the South Coast in West Sussex, the main event centers around a 1.16-mile hill climb in Goodwood Park from classic vehicles to historic collector items to modern day Formula 1 cars. It’s an absolute amazing atmosphere for anyone with automotive energy running through their veins.
Jaguar represented with an E-type Group 44 racer, D-type, XK140, XJ13 racer, XKR-S and XFR. Jay Leno took part in a few of the festivities alongside Jaguar racer Mike Cross, Frank Klaas, Jaguar Global Head of Communications and London bred UK track champion Jessica Ennis.
