Waldorf Astoria is an official sponsor of the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, and has made a selection of ticket packages available on the Hilton Auction site for ‘buy it now’.
We featured these a couple of weeks ago but all of the packages went to HFP reader by 7.15am! Hilton has now made some additional packages available for Thursday and Sunday.
For 25,000 Hilton Honors points, which I value at around £85, you get tickets for two people plus access to the trackside Waldorf Astoria viewing platform.
To put this in context, two tickets for the Sunday plus grandstand access (which may not be as good a view as the Waldorf Astoria viewing platform) would normally cost £270. Even on Thursday, the cheapest day, you would normally be paying £122 for two.
Two new options have also been added. There is a Saturday package with a 5-minute helicopter ride around the Goodwood estate (auction) and a Friday package with a drive in a rally car around the circuit (redeem for 75000 points). These are VIP packages and also include car parking and access to a special enclosure, although there is no food or drink included.
You can redeem your Hilton points via the auction site here.
