This year marks the 20th anniversary of the annual motor sport festival, which is run on the estate owned by the Earl of March and has grown to be the biggest event of its kind in the world.
As well as the 1.16-mile asphalt hillclimb, which is the focus of the racing action, since 2005 the Festival has featured a loose-surface rally stage in the forest above Goodwood House.
Designed by 1983 WRC champion Hannu Mikkola, and including a new high-speed section this year, the stage will be tackled by a variety of cars and drivers from different eras of the WRC.
Representing the present day, Volkswagen Motorsport driver Andreas Mikkelsen will be at the wheel of a 2013-spec VW Polo R, as will Spanish double World Champion Carlos Sainz [pictured] who helped develop the car. Mikko Hirvonen will also attend, driving a Citroen DS3 WRC.
WRC2 ace Sepp Wiegand will drive a Skoda Fabia S2000, as will former Mitsubishi WRC works team driver Freddy Loix.
Alongside the contemporary rally cars, around 60 historic cars will tackle the stage throughout the event. One of the earliest will be the classic Mini Cooper S, which will be driven by 1967 Monte Carlo Rally winner Rauno Aaltonen. Jean Ragnotti - another Monte Carlo winner - will drive a variety of Renaults including the A310, A442B and 5 Maxi Turbo.
Bjorn Waldegard, winner of the inaugural World Rally Championship in 1979, will drive a Toyota Celica Twin Cam turbo from the 1980s.
Other rallying greats who will be reacquainted with the cars that made them famous will include four-time world champion Juha Kankkunen, multiple British Champion Russell Brookes and Mikkola, who will drive an iconic Group B Audi Quattro.
