2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed: MG centenary celebration, dates and tickets

The Goodwood Festival of Speed’s central theme of ‘Horseless to Hybrid’ will celebrate over 130 years of engine tech in 2024, while also looking to the future

MG is going all out to celebrate its centenary and the launch of its new highly anticipated Cyberster EV, as the two-seat electric sports cars will take pride of place on the sculptural centrepiece at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Cyberster will sit centre stage in British artist Gerry Judah’s sculpture, which will be on display in front of the famous Goodwood House. This will be the first time MG has been the celebrated brand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Guy Pigounakis, MG’s UK commercial boss, said “the Festival of Speed is the perfect occasion to celebrate our heritage in our home market where the MG story began, whilst also providing a perfect platform from which to demonstrate the dynamic future of the brand on a world stage.”

The Duke of Richmond, founder of the Festival of Speed, also believes: “MG’s 100-year history combined with their continuous drive for innovation, aligns perfectly with this year’s ‘Horseless to Hybrid’ theme, which recognises the advances in technology and power that have shaped motorsport over the last 130 years.”

Due to be held between the 11th and 14th of July this year, the show will celebrate 130 years of automotive engineering, while also looking to the future of sustainable powertrains. 

The theme will be represented within the weekend’s program, with relevant landmark cars being driven up the iconic hill climb, and will provide inspiration for the central sculpture.

As usual, Goodwood FoS will host spectacular displays from the world’s best car manufacturers and annual favourites including the Supercar Paddock, Electric Avenue, Future Lab and the Cartier Lawn. 

As it does every year, the hillclimb will form the centrepiece of the Festival of Speed, with cars from every era setting times on the deceptively fast and difficult stretch of tarmac. As one of the only ‘dynamic’ motor shows in the world, the FoS has cemented itself in the global calendar as a real favourite.

Goodwood FoS 2024: dates and tickets

Four-day general admission tickets and those for the Saturday are already sold out, and there’s limited numbers remaining for the Friday 12th and Sunday 14th, too. General admission tickets start at £70, but discounted young person tickets are available for those between the ages of 12 and 21, with under 12s able to go in for free. 

Further details will be available in due course.
