To celebrate 70 years of its sports cars, Porsche will once again headline the Goodwood Festival of Speed.


Porsche has been named as the title manufacturer for the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The move has been made to mark 70 years of Porsche sports cars and sees Porsche headline the festival for a third time.

The annual event will feature numerous exhibitions paying tribute to Porsche’s extensive motorsport success, with cars from multiple disciplines including WEC, Formula 1 and rallying on display. A wide-range of Porsche road cars, sure to include the likes of the 911 2.7 RS and generations of 911 GT3, will also be displayed. Meanwhile on the hillclimb, spectators will be treated to an all-Porsche demonstration run to further celebrate the revered marque.

In 1998 Porsche assumed the leading sponsor role to celebrate its 50th anniversary and returned in 2013 to honour the Porsche 911. Speaking about Porsche’s starring role, Alexander Pollich, Managing Director of Porsche Cars Great Britain said; ‘We thought long and hard about how best to celebrate the 70th anniversary of our sports car and how we could share this with enthusiasts, Porsche fans and owners here in the UK. The Goodwood Festival of Speed will be the perfect setting.’

Speaking about the relationship between  Goodwood and Porsche, Lord March said, ‘Porsche has been one of our most loyal and enthusiastic partners, supporting the Festival of Speed since 1995, and the Revival since 2010’. ‘This year Porsche will become the first manufacturer to create the central display at the Festival for the third time, underlining the huge contribution from this iconic manufacturer of world-beating racing cars and road cars.’

The 25th Goodwood Festival of Speed will be held from July 12 to July 15 2018. Tickets are now available with prices starting from £37.
