Chevy hanging out at Goodwood

At this year's Goodwood event the 'Aveo's First Cliff-hanger' sees the small hatchback towering over the famous Goodwood grounds, on display mid-abseil on the Chevrolet stand.

Visitors are encouraged to take on their very own 'first' and abseil from 10m down the Chevrolet cliffhanger wall right next to the Aveo in mid-air!

There's more fun to be had for those with a fear of heights as the Corvette zone is another key part of the Chevrolet stand where 60 years of history and design of this iconic car is on display with the only Corvette C1 still on the road in the UK - and the Corvette 427.

On the Thursday, a few visitors to the 'Moving Motor Show' had the chance to get behind the wheel of a Chevrolet and take either an Aveo, Volt or Camaro up the famous hill climb under the watchful eye of the Chevrolet pro-drivers. At Chevrolet's main stand visitors could also get up close and personal with the Chevrolet World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) winning car.

As well as the action taking place on track, Chevrolet is showcasing its entire range of cars.

"We're very excited to be back at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, as it's an event that Chevrolet enjoys coming to every year", explains Rebecca Lawman, Head of Marketing, Chevrolet UK and Ireland. "This year Chevrolet has a whole host of exciting activities, displays and events for visitors to enjoy whether you are an adrenaline junkie, a petrol head or a future Chevrolet owner, so we are really looking forward to an action-packed weekend that will provide fun for everyone!"
