At the heart of the Festival of Speed is the sky-scraping Central Feature.

Your challenge is to create your own Central Feature at home.

Decide on your story, theme, resources (extra points for recycled, upcycled or sustainable materials) and get building!

Grand Design’s Kevin McCloud will be judging entries on a winning combination of innovation, creativity and a great story.

To enter, share your Central Feature on Instagram or Twitter, using the hashtag #SpeedWeekCentralFeature.

The winning designer will enjoy a VIP experience for two at the Festival of Speed.

Revival Best Dressed

The lucky winners will win two VIP tickets to the 2021 Revival, a top of the range Huawei MatePad tablet, and two magnums of Veuve Clicquot.

Design a Mini – Children’s Competition

Car-enthusiasts up to the age of 12 are being challenged to create an inspiring and colourful livery design for a classic 1960s Mini Cooper S.

Using the template – available to download on the Goodwood website – entrants can use pencils, crayons, paint, graphics or anything that takes their fancy, to produce a masterpiece.

The winning design will be produced and wrapped on an actual Mini which will race at Revival in 2021.

The winner and their family will be guests at the event and will see their brilliant creation in high-speed action.

Beat the pros on Gran Turismo Sport

Six Goodwood regulars have already recorded high-speed laps around the Goodwood circuit using Gran Turismo Sport and the Gran Turismo F1500T-A turbo F1 (in it’s standard form, no tuning please) car as part of the build-up to Goodwood SpeedWeek.

Now gamers are being challeneged to beat their times, and the fastest non-professional who recoeds the quickest hot lap before 23.59 on October 23 will win a Rally Stage: After Dark experience at the Festival of Speed in 2021.

All participants need to do is record a flying lap around Goodwood on Gran Turismo Sport, using the Gran Turismo F1500T-A, and post the resulting lap to either Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #MastercardHotlaps.

If you are fast enough your time will be included in the top 25 leaderboard alongside professional racing drivers recorded both before SpeedWeek and in a specially set-up rig on site.
