The Goodwood Festival of Speed for 2012 will be running from the 28th June to 1st July at Goodwood House in the UK.

The festival is a display of some classic and contemporary racing cars, luxurious supercars and of course world-class drivers who will demonstrate the speed and power of these vehicles. In addition there will also be some helicopters and motorbikes showcased at the event.

The theme of this year’s festival is Young Guns – Born to Win. The Goodwood FOS official website explains it as the celebration of “drivers and riders and designers and engineers whose supreme talent and insatiable thirst for speed shocked the establishment, affording them immediate superstar status.”

 

In the spirit of the 2012 theme, a number of young F1 world champions will be making an appearance at Goodwood House including Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel.

There are a number of vehicles making their debut at the event including the Bentley Continental GT Speed, Infiniti Emerg-E concept, Jaguar XF Sportbrake and the refreshed McLaren MP4-12C among others.

Porsche will be making its appearance at the festival on 29th June and will be posting interviews, videos and pictures on its website throughout the event.
