In Pictures: Goodwood Speedweek caught on camera

Time 7:27 am, October 18, 2020

With its live events cancelled by the pandemic, Goodwood has held a behind-closed-doors Speedweek event instead.

The West Sussex estate had to cancel the Festival of Speed, Revival and Members’ Meeting in 2020, but to keep petrolheads happy it came up with the one-off Speedweek solution.

Hosted at Goodwood Motor Circuit, the premise is that it combined some of the highlights of each event into one package.

The racing was closed to spectators, but everything has been streamed live online – and you can catch the last of the action today. You can find out more and watch the streams here.

Here’s a look at the event on camera thanks to our reporter Darren Cassey who was invited to go behind the scenes.
