Group C to Feature at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed


We are pleased to announce that the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed will be celebrating the 30 year anniversary of Group C.

Launched in 1982, the Group C era was one of the most competitive in sports car racing history, with an unprecedented number of factory teams.

There will be a dedicated class for Group C including cars from Porsche, Jaguar, Mercedes, Toyota, Nissan, Aston Martin, Lancia and Peugeot.  As well as a stunning sight in the paddock, these cars are sure to be amongst the fastest up the famous Goodwood hill.

The Festival of Speed is the largest motoring garden party in the world – a unique summer weekend that brings together an impossibly heady mix of cars, stars and motor sport ‘royalty’ to create the largest car culture event in the world.

I’m sure you will agree this is good news for those of us interested in Group C and we should be pleased with such a correlation and the incumbent publicity for our series.

The information will be updated as we get more details.
