It has been a good five years since Britain saw its very own international motor show, with a lack of interest from punters and minimal support from manufacturers signalling an end to proceedings.
Luckily, Lord March decided to open the gates to his Goodwood estate as interest in the British motor show waned and allowed interested parties to run their potent vehicles up his driveway while like-minded individuals chomped on a hotdog and enjoyed the aural delights.
The festival has grown in popularity over the years, with an estimated 200,000 people in attendance at this year's extravaganza but things are about to get bigger as Lord March announces dates for the 2014 festivities.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed, incorporating the Moving Motor Show, will take place from June 26 to 29 next year, while the vintage-loving Goodwood Revival will go ahead between September 12 and 14.
Fans of all eras of motorsport will be catered for next year with the Festival of Speed featuring everything from modern supercars for Formula 1 racers, while the Revival takes things back to the 'golden age of motorsport' and pits the likes of Ferrari 250 GTO's against Jaguar E-Types.
