Goodwood's Festival of Speed next week-end
Bugatti Veyron at Goodwood
26th June, 2011
One of the world's great motor sport events is set to take place
next week-end in England.
From 1st-3rd July, the Festival of Speed will be the only place in Britain to see the very latest super cars
in action, as well as up close in the popular Goodwood Super Car Paddock. The Festival of Speed has firmly
established itself as the best place to see the newest, greatest and fastest super cars from around the globe.
The Goodwood Super car Run is unique in providing a dynamic environment in which the public can view new models
for the first time.
Unlike a conventional motor show, the Super car Run affords a fantastic opportunity not only to exhibit a new
super car, but also to show it in action on the Goodwood hill climb. Last year's Festival saw over 20 UK public
debuts out of a 50-car field, and this year’s entry list is also looking good.
For 2011 the Super car Run promises the very latest super cars from all around the world, with cars from as
many as 11 countries anticipated. Cars already confirmed to be making their world and/or UK dynamic (rather
than static) debuts will include the Ferrari FF, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, Jaguar XKR-S, Pagani Huayra, GTA
Spano, Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, Hennessy Venom GT, Koenigsegg Agera R, Marussia B1 and B2, Hulme CanAm
Spyder, the six-wheeled Covini C6, and the production version of the McLaren MP4-12C, which made its world debut
in pre-series form at the 2010 Festival of Speed.
In all, as many as 50 great super cars will be in action on the Hill, which will certainly be a feast for the
senses of the expected 175,000+ visitors to the Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show. A number of other
important UK debuts will also take place in the First Glance class, FoS-TECH and in the manufacturers’ vast
exhibition area at Goodwood, including the new Morgan 3 Wheeler, Alfa Romeo 4C, Peugeot EX1, Chevrolet Camaro
convertible and Infiniti Etheria concept.
Away from the Super car Run, over a dozen other new vehicles are expected to be making their UK public debut
on the Hill as part of the new Goodwood Moving Motor Show.
