Goodwood and Porsche have announced that Porsche will be the honoured marque at this year's Festival of Speed, presented by Mastercard (12th to 15th July). Porsche cars will adorn the world-renowned Central Feature for the third time in the manufacturer's long relationship with Goodwood.

Goodwood will pay tribute to Porsche's many successes, including both race cars and road-going models
Porsche will be the first marque to take this honour in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the iconic 356 - its very first sports car.

This year's Festival will showcase the full range of Porsche's achievements in a dedicated batch on the Goodwood Hillclimb, with other examples of the marque's rich heritage also displayed around the sell-out event site.

"Porsche has been one of our most loyal and enthusiastic partners, supporting the Festival of Speed since 1995, and the Revival since 2010," said The Duke of Richmond and Gordon.

"This year Porsche will become the first manufacturer to create the central display at the Festival for the third time, underlining the huge contribution from this iconic manufacturer of world-beating racing cars and road cars."

With over 100 class wins to its name, including an unprecedented 19 overall victories, Porsche is best known for its successes at the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race, but its pedigree runs much deeper and across all disciplines of the sport. Alongside a strong GT and Prototype contingent, Goodwood will pay tribute to Porsche's many successes, with examples on display from its history in Formula One, IndyCar and rallying, in addition to a number of road-going models.

The Festival is renowned for attracting the rarest and most exciting road and race cars and bikes ever created and the 2018 running of the event will be no different. A never-before-seen parade of Porsche cars that have helped define and guide the company's vision over the years will feature in action on the Goodwood Hillclimb alongside static exhibits and the incredible Porsche Experience Centre.
