Goodwood announced a new addition to the Festival of Speed, a dedicated Manufacturer Preview Day called “Moving Motor Show.” Held on the ground of Goodwood Park on Thursday, 1 July 2010, the motor show preview day allows new cars buyers to not only see the very latest new car models on display, but in many cases also climb aboard and experience the vehicles first-hand at each manufacturer’s invitation.
The ‘Moving Motor Show’ will undertake hundreds of runs on a special evaluation route that includes the world famous Goodwood hillclimb, following in the wheel tracks of many celebrated racing drivers, including Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Sir Stirling Moss.
The Festival of Speed has grown to become Britain’s largest annual automotive exhibition, consistently attracting over 150,000+ visitors over three days. The Supercar Run has become a key attraction at the Festival, enabling manufacturers to showcase their latest products in action. Building on this, the Festival has increasingly been used by vehicle companies to debut important new models – with over 30 appearing for the very first time in the UK in 2009.
Commenting on this latest Goodwood motoring initiative, Festival of Speed founder Lord March says, “The Moving Motor Show is a direct response to the continued enthusiasm and demand from vehicle manufacturers and the general car-buying public alike for an annual motor show in Britain. In recent years the British Motor Show has been bi-annual, and has now been cancelled altogether for 2010.”
Lord March continues: “My hope is that the Goodwood Moving Motor Show will become a ‘must attend’ annual event, enabling car buyers to see and experience the latest models, and giving vehicle producers the opportunity to showcase their products in a stunning setting and a relaxed environment.”
