Goodwood Festival of Speed: the Moving Motor Show

The 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed saw the introduction of the Moving Motor Show on Thursday July 1.

Billed as the new British Motor Show, a limited number of ticket holders were given the opportunity to not only see but also drive some of the hottest new cars from more than 25 manufacturers including BMW, Jaguar, Porsche and Rolls-Royce.

The list of UK debuts included the Audi A1, Nissan Juke, Ford Focus RS500, the new Mercedes CL coupe, Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Hennessy Venom GT and MG6.

And – despite an incident involving a Honda Civic Type R Mugen that left four injured and an original Jaguar E-Type scarred – the organisers have confirmed the Moving Motor Show will return in 2011.

A statement from Lord March said the “inaugural event met with an extremely positive response from the vehicle manufacturers and visiting public alike”.

“Many manufacturers reported taking orders for new cars during the Moving Motor Show, including a number of £100,000+ supercars, and many have already expressed their intention to return for the 2011 event, including a couple that did not participate in this year’s show.”
