The dates and themes for the Goodwood Festival of Speed and second annual Moving Motor Show have been announced for 2011. The Moving Motor Show will return for a second year to Goodwood Park on 30 June, followed by the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 1-3 July, and the Goodwood Revival from 16-18 September 2011. According to the organiser, the theme for next year’s Festival of Speed will be “Racing Revolutions – Quantum leaps that shaped motor sport” to celebrate the ongoing push for increased power, efficiency and speed in the motor industry. The organiser said next year’s events will also celebrate a range of significant milestones for the motor sports industry. These include the 75th anniversary of Auto Union winning the European Championship; the 30th anniversary of rallying’s four-wheel drive age; and the 25th anniversary of turbo-charged engines in F1.The 2011 Festival of Speed will also recognise the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 with a gathering of cars and drivers from the iconic race. The highlight of the Good Revival, meanwhile, will be Jaguar’s E-Type vehicle, which turns 50 next year and will be highlighted through a one-make race. “I am really looking forward to having so many great cars and drivers here at the Festival of Speed to celebrate our 2011 ‘Racing Revolutions’ theme,” Goodwood Festival of Speed founder Lord March said. “For me it is always magical to see so many of the world’s greatest drivers, riders and machines in action.” The Moving Motor Show was developed as a dedicated manufacturer preview event and launched in 2010. Last year’s three-day Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show reported total attendance of 176,000 visitors across the four days. The organiser will also hold the second annual Goodwood Aviation Exhibition at the ex-Battle of Britain Goodwood Aerodrome as a complementary event to the Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show from 30 June to 3 July.
