GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED UPDATE
GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED
less than six months until the Festival of Speed 2015 kicks off and
that means we can start to tell you about the incredible cars ready to
thrill you. Even though you are guaranteed to see the most modern and
cutting-edge vehicles here, our first announcement rolls back the years
to the beginning of the 20th century: 19 'Edwardian Leviathans' will be
the first to go up the Hillclimb, including the much-heralded 'Beast of
Turin' Fiat S76 and the oldest of the group, a 1902 Mors Type Z, as
raced in the Gordon Bennett Trophy.
In addition to this, you can
expect the same brilliant mix as always of the greatest cars and bikes
from the past, present and future of motor sport and motoring - with
plenty more mouth-watering announcements of superstar drivers and riders
to come. This is only the beginning...
LEVIATHANS TO GIVE FOS A GROUND-SHAKING ALARM CALL

historic machines take on the famous Goodwood Hillclimb.
video was watched more than 430,000 times when we posted it in
December. The film is a work of art and it is incredible to see the car
fired up for the first time in over 100 years - but more importantly: it
is going to be coming to FOS.
theme for FOS 2015 is 'Flat-out and Fearless: Racing on the Edge' - but
what does that really mean? Take a look at this collection of videos of
iconic drivers and races to understand what this year's event is all
