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!
