The Goodwood Festival of Speed will be known as Goodwood Speedweek this year

The Godwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival are aruguably two of the most anticipated events on the motorsport and motoring calendars, respetively. Enthusiasts travel across the world to witness the action and colorful events that take place each year.

Sadly, however, this is not possible this year due to the ongoing coronaviirus pandemic. This is what prompted organizers to cancel the event, which was announced last month. Take heart, though, as Goodwood will still push through this year, albeit in a slightly different format.

The Goodwood Speedweek, as it will be known, will still be a motorsport delight with events such as on-track and rally competitions, along with the much-anticipated Goodwood Hill Climb. This year will also mark the very first Goodwood Gymkhana. Apart from these, we can expect to see a slew of automotive premieres taking place at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex.

While you may think that this is pretty much the same thing that happens each year, the upcoming event set for October 16-18 will have one distinct difference—the lack of a physical audience. In lieu of this, the entire event will be broadcast to motoring and motorsport audiences around the world.

Yes, you can now watch the action and color from Goodwood wherever you may be in the world. While the organizers have not given any specifics just yet, rest assured we will let you know about these once we get word.
