Freddie Spencer, John Surtees, Gabriele Tarquini, Gordon Shedden, Matt Neal, John Mcguinnes and Alex Lowes are just some of the drivers who will be making their way up the Goodwood hill in a selection of Honda's vehicles.

Both Spencer and Surtees will be reunited with their old racing machines for the hillclimb run.
