Jaguar at Goodwood

The drivers’ list may have been a who’s who of the last 60 years, ranging from Sir Stirling Moss to Sebastian Vettel, but there was only one star at last weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the stunning new Jaguar F type.

Driven up the challenging Goodwood hill by Jaguar’s Head of Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross, the all-aluminium F-Type – a Supercharged V6 example – ran with its hood down for the first time in public view.  What is simply amazing is that the F-Type comes over 50 years after its predecessor, the E-type, was launched.  The opposition are still catching up.

Goodwood is a terrific site and is now Britain’s second most popular motor sport venue after Silverstone although road access is still difficult even after the opening of the Hindhead Tunnel and needs to be sorted out. 

On the track the classes allowed Allan Winn out in the Brooklands 1927 Delage, Emerson Fittapaldi in a Lotus 72 and Kenny Roberts on a Yamaha.  The rally course saw celebrity chef James Martin in a former Paddy Hopkirk Cooper S.

Goodwood is also now probably the world’s largest outdoor car show with virtually every manufacturer present.  A family day out too.  The Goodwood Revival is 14-16 September 2012. www.goodwood.co.uk/festival-of-speed www.goodwood.co.uk/revival
