Goodwoord 2010 FESTIVAL OF SPEED 1The 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed will have the theme: ‘Viva Veloce! – The Passion for Speed’. This theme celebrates Italy’s all-consuming fascination with motor racing.

Italian influences can be found in many of motorsport’s most memorable and enduring performances. Whether it’s Fangio and Wimille dominating the immediate post-war years in Alfa Romeos, Moss and Behra battling against the odds in Maseratis, Villeneuve and Schumacher’s towering achievements in F1 Ferraris, or Toivonen and Kankkunen surging through the forests in Lancias they all shared in Italy’s glory.

Goodwood Festival of Speed founder, Lord March says: ‘It will be fabulous to have so many great cars and drivers here at Goodwood to celebrate our Italian-flavoured Viva Veloce! theme for 2010. I look forward with much anticipation to seeing some of the greatest drivers, riders and machines in action.’

Running alongside the 2010 Festival central theme, Goodwood will also celebrate 60 years of the Formula One World Championship, with a gathering of cars and drivers that have shaped the history of motor sport’s most glamorous series.

The provisional date for next year’s Festival of Speed is 2-4 July 2010.
