Okay, so we’re cheating a bit here, but each of Goodwood’s events is worthy of being on this list.
Racing fans should head to the Revival, which combines the best historic drivers with current stars and some of the best racing cars ever made, but the Members’ Meeting is a gem too.
Lower key and less crowded than the Revival, it still produces the goods, while the Gerry Marshall Trophy for 1970s and early 1980s touring cars helps give the event its own identity.
For star spotting (both human and mechanical), the Festival of Speed is the place to go. The 2016 theme is ‘Full Throttle – The Endless Pursuit of Power’, which should help to attract some pretty sensational and over-the-top machinery.
One of the highlights of the event is what happens near where the hunkered-down race cars do their donuts and get ready to head back down the hill.
Get in between the trees and prepare yourself for an onslaught of the best collection of fighting fit Group 4, Group B and modern day rally cars under the sun.
And, just like the boys and girls tearing it up outside the house, the machinery on the Forest Stage will probably be driven just a touch quicker than it really ought to be.
