The 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed is fast approaching and looks to be another great event. Why, well they’ve not only got Button and Hamilton in attendance – you’d pretty much expect the recent British F1 champions to be present, but they also have the current and youngest double F1 World Champion, Sebastian Vettel there for the event. Mark Webber? Yep, he’s there too – he loves the Festival of Speed and is there most years.
The event is happening a week prior to the British GP, in the height of what should be a glorious British summer. If you can’t make it, BadgerGP will bringing you coverage of all the action and photographs of the motors on display.
Info from Goodwood themselves:
Lord March is delighted to announce the attendance of the Red Bull Racing F1 team at this year’s Festival of Speed with its double Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel, who is due to appear at Goodwood for the very first time. Sebastian’s Red Bull Racing team mate and regular Goodwood supporter Mark Webber will also appear in action at Goodwood just one week before the British Grand Prix, giving Festival spectators and F1 fans the chance to see the drivers and team at much closer quarters than they are traditionally able to at a GP circuit. The astonishing achievements of double F1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel is a perfect representation of the 2012 Festival theme ‘Young Guns – Born to Win’, which celebrates huge motor racing talent, who burst on to the scene at an early age.. This elite group of newcomers also includes motor racing greats such as Bernd Rosemeyer, Mike Hawthorn, Emerson Fittipaldi, Ayton Senna, Mike Hailwood, Valentino Rossi, Henri Toivonen and Colin McRae.
