World Land Speed Record holder, Andy Green, will be experiencing a different type of thrust this weekend when he drives the all-new, 325 hp Vauxhall Insignia VXR up Goodwood’s hillclimb course at England's famous Festival of Speed.

<>Andy, who achieved 763 mph with the Thrust SSC in 1997, setting a record which has yet to be broken, will be driving the Vauxhall Insignia in two of the Festival’s Super Car demonstration runs.

The VXR, Vauxhall’s most powerful Insignia model, will make its UK debut at the Festival, featuring a highly-modified Adaptive 4X4 chassis and turbocharged 2.8-litre V6 engine.

“The Festival of Speed is one of the highlights of my year,” said Andy. “So when I was offered the chance to drive Vauxhall’s new high-performance Insignia up the Hill, it was just the icing on the cake!  Fast road cars are the essence of the Festival and I am really looking forward to giving the Insignia a good run up the Hill this weekend.”

In addition to driving the Vauxhall Insignia VXR, Andy will be busy promoting the Bloodhound SSC, the new Richard Noble-designed Land Speed Record challenger, boasting a 1,050 mph top speed. A full-sized Bloodhound show car – all 42 feet of it – will be on display at the Festival
