Tomorrow marks the first day of the 2009 Goodwood Festival of Speed and from what we’ve seen and heard so far, it’s going to be the best one yet.
Whether you’re a fan of classic cars, supercars, concept cars, Le Mans cars, F1 cars or rally cars, you’re not going to be disappointed. But what can you expect to see on Lord March’s estate this weekend?
First up, rally cars. The all conquering five-time WRC champion Sebastian Loeb will be making his first appearance at the show. Loeb will be demonstrating his Citroen C4 WRC car at regular intervals on the 3km gravel Forest Rally Stage. His team mate Daniel Sordo will also be appearing.
Britain’s Intercontinental Rally Challenge star Kris Meeke will also be taking to the gravel in his Peugeot 207 contender. Meeke has been lined up to do a few runs in Colin McRae’s Mk2 Ford Escort as a tribute to the ex-world champion.
F1 fans won’t be feeling left out either. Six current F1 teams are scheduled to appear – Ferrari, McLaren, BMW, Red Bull, Brawn and Toyota – while British drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, as well as Mark Webber, Timo Glock, Marc Gene and Pedro de la Rosa, will be making an attendance.
