Goodwood to host 'British motor show'

Tom Webster

A British motor show is set to take place on the eve of the Festival of Speed at Goodwood this year.

The show will take place on Thursday 1 July and, unlike most static motor shows, will allow visitors to test drive the cars around the Goodwood estate and up the famous hill route that features in the Festival.

The idea is the brainchild of the estate's owner Lord March and will play host to several important launches, including the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. Alfa is also holding its 100th birthday celebrations at the festival this year.
