26일 부터 세계 최고의 역사적 의미 있는 모터 레이싱의 축제인 Goodwood Festival of speed 2004가 올해로 25회째를 맞게 되었습니다. 그 의미와 역사는 공식싸이트를 인용해 옮겨 놓았습니다. 그럼 재미난 감상을.....
The Festival of Speed is far more than just a hillclimb: it can justifiably claim to be the world’s biggest and most diverse celebration of the history of motor sport. It is the only occasion where you will see in action the greatest competition cars and star drivers from all eras: everything from 19th century steam carriages to current Formula One; fabulous racing motorcycles; 2500bhp Land Speed Record cars alongside engineless soapbox racers; plus motor sport legends like Moss, Surtees, Brabham and Andretti rubbing shoulders with today's hottest properties such as Jenson Button and Colin McRae.
Motor racing first came to Goodwood in 1936 when the 9th Duke of Richmond held a private hillclimb through the park. Five years earlier he had won the Brooklands Double 12, and then in 1948 he opened the Goodwood Motor Circuit. These early events inspired his grandson, the present Earl of March, to bring motor sport back to Goodwood. This resulted in the first Festival of Speed, held in 1993 in the picturesque parkland surrounding Goodwood House.
Since the inaugural meeting, the Festival has become established as a key event in the motor sport social calendar. But it is not all about action on the hill. Unrestricted access to the paddocks means that spectators and autograph hunters can get closer to the cars and drivers than at almost any other meeting. Away from the bustle of competition, you can relax with a picnic on the lawns of the House among some of the most beautiful and innovative automotive creations, which are judged in the Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ design competition. You can explore the exciting displays of our many exhibitors, or seek an adrenaline rush from the Festival's interactive entertainment, including driving simulators and tank rides. Children will delight in the special amusements to be found at the Junior Festival of Speed.
The Festival is motor racing's equivalent of Ascot or Wimbledon: an extravaganza of sound and colour that has been described as 'the garden party of the Gods'. In combination with the rich period theatre of the Goodwood Revival, the Festival of Speed ensures that Goodwood is unrivalled throughout the world.
The hillclimb :
페스티발의 일부로서 기록에 연연하지 않코 단지 참가의 의의를 둔 레이싱이며, 트렉의 특징을 말그대로 표현하자면 언덕을 기어오르는 모양을 하고 있어, 이런 레이싱의 부재가 붙은 것 같습니다.
The principal attraction of the Festival of Speed is the hillclimb competition, which takes place throughout the Festival weekend on a 1.16-mile course on parkland roads in the grounds of Goodwood House - click here for map. The start is near the gate lodge at the South of the park. Cars race along a tree-lined avenue and turn to pass in front of Goodwood House, before climbing a steep and narrow estate road past flint walls and dense woodland groves, heading towards Goodwood's Racecourse on top of the magnificent South Downs.
The Festival caters exclusively for the most significant cars in the history of international motor sport, such as famous Grand Prix cars; successful Le Mans, Indy and CanAm cars; important rally and touring cars; plus some of the world’s most famous competition motorcycles. Entry is by invitation only from Lord March, and the field is selected thematically, with the cars and motorcycles chosen specifically to reflect the major themes for the year. Therefore all competing vehicles are presented in their original condition and livery, with a strong emphasis on their individual history.
The competition begins with free practice on Friday, when nearly 200 cars run up the course in single file, each setting off at one-minute intervals. The cars are grouped thematically into classes of comparable machinery, with the oldest cars running first. Those who have chosen to be timed will compete against other similar cars in their Timed Category: the winner will be the one who sets the fastest time during the official runs on Sunday. The Timed Categories are outlined below. Some of the cars, however, are little-used collectors' pieces, whose owners decide not to be timed. These cars complete a demonstration run only, although no speed restrictions are placed upon them.
On Saturday, each competitor completes two further practice runs, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The two runs are repeated on Sunday, and each competitor's fastest time determines his/her final result in the competition.When they are not competing, the cars are kept in four paddocks near to Goodwood House. The Cathedral Paddock near Crossroads Corner houses pre-war racing cars, plus some of the event’s post-war racers, (especially sports, touring and rally cars). The Formula 1 Paddock to the east of Goodwood House features the rest of the competition machinery, including the current Formula 1 teams and all the racing motorcycles. The Brooklands Paddock holds the current production or planned-production performance cars taking part in the Supercar Run. Each year the Festival's featured marque is displayed in the Central Feature Paddock around the carriage turning circle immediately in front of Goodwood House.
Cars make their way along the hillclimb course to the startline in a batch made up of several classes (approximately 35 cars in total) before turning around and awaiting their call to run to the top. When all the cars in the batch are at the top of the hill, the course closes and the next batch goes to the start. The cars at the top then make their way back down the hill to their paddocks before the second batch makes its run. This process is repeated until the whole field has completed a run.
