The organisers of the Goodwood Festival of Speed have announced that the 2013 edition of the event will now run from July 12-14.
The event had been set to take place from July 5-7 before news broke earlier this month that the German Grand Prix
had been moved to accommodate an additional European race
on the 2013 F1 calendar.
“Following the recent unexpected change to the 2013 F1 calendar, it has been necessary to change the published dates of the Goodwood Festival of Speed to avoid a clash with the revised German Grand Prix
- and to ensure that the Festival can continue to host current F1 teams and drivers in 2013,” read a statement issued by the organisers today.
“Current F1 content has played an integral part in the Festival over the last twenty years, and will continue to do so in 2013 as part of Goodwood's 20th anniversary Festival celebrations.
“Subject to any further amendments to the Grand Prix calendar, the 2013 Festival of Speed will now take place on 12-14 July, with the Moving Motor Show being held on Thursday 11 July.”
All 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed tickets already purchased will remain valid for the new dates.
