Huge Grounds. Huge Crowds. Huge Performance.
The 2017 Edition of Goodwood Festival of Speed had another amazing turnout from manufacturers & crowds alike. Manufacturers were demoing their latest in vehicular technology on the Hillclimb and on their massive stands.
Stars from the past & present in the Motorsport scene were reunited with their former race cars for runs up the Hillclimb.
The theme for the 2017 event was ‘Peaks of Performance – Motorsport’s Game-Changers’, dedicated to those cars & bikes who were so good, rules had to be tweaked or rewritted to give rivals a chance.
Once again, the grounds were gifted with a flyover by the Red Arrows and celebrations took place throughout the evenings.
Project Shop were present at Goodwood supporting Puff the Magic Wagon on the Forest Rally Stage.
Many ex-Formula One cars appeared for demo runs, some driven by their former drivers & designers.
The ever present Lord March had marques from across the world fighting for the hillclimb record once again. This year Justin Law – driving the Jaguar XJR-12D – managed a 46.13 second run, claiming the Number One spot in the FOS Shootout.
Celebrating their 70th Anniversary, Ferrari took 70 iconic cars on a special parade of the hillclimb, before coming together on the Lawn of Goodwood House. Led by the first car to wear the Ferrari badge, the 1947 Ferrari 125S and the very latest LaFerrari Aperta, the cars were driven by motorsport legends such as Derek Bell, Jackie Stewart, Dario Franchitti, Marc Gene, Alessandro Pier Guidi, Davide Rigon, Olivier Beretta, Sam Bird, James Calado, and René Arnoux.
