Jaguar C-X75 and Alfa 4C concepts to feature; win tickets to the Moving Motor Show
22 June 2011

Vauxhall’s new Astra GTC and 
the hot Honda CR-Z Mugen hybrid will be among the cars making world debuts at next week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Both will be taking part in the Festival’s ‘First Glance’ run up the hill, a part of the show that will also feature dynamic debuts of the Range Rover Evoque and Citroën Survolt concept racer.

They will also be joined by the all-new BMW M5, which will make its first appearance on UK soil as a static display. Lotus is also rumoured to be showing its new five-strong range of sports cars in Britain for the first time.

Two of the biggest concept cars 
from the past year — the Jaguar C-X75 and Alfa Romeo 4C — will make British debuts at an event 
that has become Britain’s unofficial motor show since the London Excel show’s demise in 2008.

Goodwood’s popular Supercar Run is again packed with cars that have never before been seen in action in the UK, including 
the Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari FF and Pagani Huayra. They will be joined by the 
British-built, Ariel Atom-rivalling BAC Mono, making its world debut.

Also returning to Goodwood is the Moving Motor Show (MMS), now in its second year. Two new manufacturers —
Seat and Skoda — have signed up to the event, which allows prospective buyers to take test drives around the Goodwood estate.

The 22 participating manufacturers will be based in a purpose-built pavilion near the hillclimb’s start line, a structure that has undergone substantial revisions following a crash inside it at last year’s show.

Goodwood is expected to expand the MMS into a second day next year should this year’s event again be a success. New features could also be added, such as an off-road test course.
