A host of stars from the world of motorsport are set to appear at this year’s Classic & Sports Car. It follows the news that Goodwood Road & Racing will be curating the Live Interview stage at this year’s Alexandra Palace event in the autumn. Last year's guests included Ross Brawn, David Brabham and Norman Dewis.

Goodwood Road and Racing, which hosts legendary events such as the Festival of Speed, Revival, and Members’ Meeting, is promises a range of guests rich with motorsport heritage. Broadcaster and commentator Henry Hope-Frost, a familiar voice at both the show and Goodwood, will be hosting the stage, which will run throughout the three-day event. The show will be one of the first live experiences Goodwood has curated outside of the estate.

Will Kinsman, head of motorsport content at Goodwood, said, ‘We’re looking forward to bringing a host of famous faces to the Live Interview Stage, which we hope will continue to be an entertaining and popular part of the event.’

James Elliott, Classic & Sports Car magazine group editor, added, ‘The Interview Stage was a popular feature at the inaugural event, with star guests from drivers and team principals to TV personalities drawing large crowds throughout the show. With such a prestigious organisation as Goodwood partnering with us this year, we are sure to have a star-studded line-up appealing to visitors of all ages.’

Guests and a stage schedule will be announced in the run up to the event. The Classic & Sports Car Show will feature more than 300 of the world’s most prestigious and glamorous classic cars including displays from a selection of the industry’s leading dealers.

The show will also feature an auction from Coys, while the top ten finalists from the show’s Century of Supercars global poll will be gathered together in a multi-million pound centerpiece, with the winner – the Greatest Supercar Ever – announced at the event.

To vote, simply go to the show’s all-new website and pick your favourite from each group between now and 31 August. The show’s new website also features a range of ticket packages, from general access to a limited number of premium tickets offering everything from fine dining to guided tours of the event.
