Honda hail Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014 a roaring success

Honda hail Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014 a roaring success

3 July 2014



Honda celebrated a successful four days at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, welcoming thousands of visitors to its interactive stand and innovative showcase of cars, motorcycles, and racing machinery.


Taking centre stage on the main Honda stand were pre-launch concept versions of the NSX supercar and Civic Type R, which attracted huge numbers of visitors. Final production versions of both cars will land in Europe in 2015.


Alongside the cars on display, a selection of Honda racing classics from the Honda Collection Hall in Japan took to the famous Goodwood Hillclimb. These included Senna’s McLaren Honda MP4/4, driven over the weekend by Japanese racer Takuya Izawa, and the 1965 RA272 F1 racer piloted by touring car stalwart and current Castrol Honda WTCC driver, Gabriele Tarquini.


Honda delivered a multi-location showcase at this year’s Festival of Speed, spanning 18,000sq metres of the Goodwood estate, with a focus on creating fun and interactive content that would excite and entertain visitors.


Emmet Kavanagh, Marketing Manager, Universal Honda Ltd., commented: “With the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Honda wanted to step away from the traditional motorshow stand display and do something different that visitors could engage with. We have a very exciting future with some iconic models being launched next year and our aim was to continue building that anticipation and really shout ‘Honda is Back’, which we certainly achieved.


“Goodwood Festival of Speed is a fantastic event for motor sport and car enthusiasts. Our rich racing history is very important to Honda, particularly with our return to Formula 1 next year, and being able to bring over some very special machinery from Japan and showcase them on the famous Hill Climb was a highlight of the event for us at Honda.” 


The Goodwood Festival of Speed is 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.
