7. Goodwood Festival Of Speed

Kenny Roberts Goodwood

Granted, Goodwood is also a car fest, but is that such a bad thing? The Goodwood Festival of Speed combines a diverse collection of historical cars, motorcycles, and often even the heroes who originally piloted them all in one place. Unlike the Barber Vintage Festival, Goodwood is a hillclimb event, and the course is essentially the driveway to the Goodwood House. It’s more parade than competition, but being able to see and hear history on wheels coming to life one more time is something special. Oh, and don’t forget to bring period-correct clothing, too!

  • Isle of Man, by a mile.

    • Oslo Norway

      Good over all list too…Man, the TV thing just doesn’t do a mile track justice. Hockey and dirt track miles seem to suffer this fate. A mile race on the dirt in person is a must see deal…

        Agree with the hockey part.Maybe you’re right about the dirt track part too,wouldn’t rule it out…

  • fastfreddie

    If they were still doing Spa franchorchamps on motoGP,I’d still place it second to IoM.But it would have been a great second:)

    Great list

    Edit:Should be needless to say,but check out TT3D:closer to the edge.It’s documovie from IoM which comes also not 3D 😀

    I was hoping #1 would be the Isle of Man! I’m going to make it over soon and bring a bike. They say you can ride the course. The Videos are Unreal!

      Have fun! Yes, there should be opportunities to ride the course. Quite jealous. I’d love to go back.

      If you go there,I would recommend riding around the track very early in the morning (around 5am) rather than mad sunday.Do mad sunday,but be careful then as there are alot of nutters there then.
