Forget Wimbledon, forget that football competition in Russia. There is only place to be this weekend, and that is at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. With this year marking the 25th anniversary of the event, things are even more spectacular than usual. There’s supercar debuts, a dramatic central display, and even numerous exotics to be found just lurking in the surrounding car parks.
We have a dedicated Goodwood channel for this weekend, meaning you can check out all the highlights and best bits from the comfort of your sofa. You can also watch the action in real-time, courtesy of a special live stream of the hill climb runs.
Away from Goodwood, the MR team have still been hard at work this week. We’ve covered the greatest designs from Pininfarina, checked out the most dependable cars on sale, and looked at all the latest motoring news.
