Goodwood gets set to GAS up the Festival of Speed

Published: 03 June 2016

Goodwood Action Sports (GAS) returns to the Goodwood Festival of Speed for its fifth successive year, with a veritable who’s who of action sport stars all ready for four days of two-wheel fast-paced, high-octane motorised and pedal-powered insanity. Three hour-long shows will take place each day from Thursday June 23 through to Sunday June 26. 

The Festival of Speed is the world’s largest automotive garden party, set against the spectacular backdrop of Goodwood House in West Sussex. Over 600 cars and motorcycles take part, with legendary figures from all disciplines of motorsport and international celebrities regularly attending - with last year's highlight being a star appearance by Valentino Rossi. 

GAS sees 10,000-plus tonnes of dirt shipped in to create an adventure playground for giants of the FMX world, Mountain Bike and BMX legends from all over the globe to play on. Multiple British and World Trials Champion, Dougie Lampkin MBE, will also be on hand to turn a trick or two in the GAS Arena.

GAS will also offer a vast array of electric and pedal-powered bikes for wannabee off-roaders to try out for the first time. This is a hugely popular aspect of the GAS Experience and caters for all age groups. 

Head to the Goodwood ticket website to book your tickets - but be quick, they always sell out well in advance of the festival weekend - and there are already limited tickets remaining.
