The organiser of the Goodwood Festival of Speed is to introduce a dedicated manufacturer preview day, dubbed the Moving Motor Show.

The one-day extension to the historic motorsport event will be held within the grounds of Goodwood Park on 1 July 2010.

Exhibitors already confirmed include Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Jaguar, BMW, Abarth, Morgan, Volvo, Mazda, Rolls-Royce, Ford, Nissan and Alpina. The new car launches will be tested on a special evaluation route and visitors will have access to feel what it is like behind the driver’s wheel at standstill.

Annually, the Festival of Speed attracts over 150,000 visitors over three days and its organiser claims it is “Britain's largest annual automotive exhibition”. 

"The Moving Motor Show is a direct response to the continued enthusiasm and demand from vehicle manufacturers and the general car-buying public alike for an annual motor show in Britain,” says Festival of Speed founder, Lord March. “In recent years, the British Motor Show has been bi-annual, and has now been cancelled altogether for 2010."
