Festival of Speed 2019

As part of our partnership with Goodwood Racecourse, we were invited to take part in their annual Festival of Speed, held near the Duke’s home on their gorgeous estate.

Marcel and I joined Peter and Sophie for this celebration of racing cars, revving engines and roaring exhausts. And surprisingly, our rosé wine fitted in rather well, both in frozen form and in the ready-to-go cans. Other new trends rocking the scene, were the electric supercars that were quietly going about breaking all kinds of speed records.

‘Coco’ – a vintage airstream – was wrapped to match our Prêt-a-Porter canettes and quite an eye-catcher. The FOS Team thoughtfully placed us next to the sushi airstream for a perfect food/wine pairing. We all agreed it went rather well with the organic burgers alongside them too.

This event is a motorhead’s dream – the festival is huge! And the variety of vehicles, impressive … from priceless Classics to modern GT racers. Every one stopped to admire the Blades and Red Arrows flying overhead in gravity-defying acts.

Many thanks to our Goodwood Team (Erica, Camilla, Zoe and Lisa) for taking care of us so well.

If you’re going Revival (13-15 September), look out for Coco, and say hi to Peter and Sophie.
