Lord March to discuss his Festival success at Hay

| 22 May 2013

As the Goodwood Festival of Speed celebrates its 20th year, Lord March is to reveal the story of its success at a leading literary festival.

The event's mastermind is set to discuss the enormous growth of the Festival of Speed with Daily Telegraph executive editor Mark Skipworth at the Hay Festival next week.

Billed as 'a celebration of the first 20 years of the world’s premier classic performance car event – a story of cars, stars and the reinvention of a stately home', the talk will take place at 5:30pm on Thursday 30 May in Google's Big Tent.

Likely discussion topics include the seven current Formula One teams lined up to attend this year’s Festival of Speed, including McLaren, Ferrari, Red Bull and Mercedes, as well as their drivers.

Currently confirmed to be at Goodwood this year are Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, as well as greats from years gone by including Sir Jackie Stewart, Alain Prost, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill.Tickets to the Hay event cost £8 and can be booked here.
