Road-going Ford GT to tear up the Goodwood Hill

Motoring fans at this summer's Goodwood Festival of Speed will be treated to the first dynamic appearance in the UK of the road-legal Ford GT.

Piloted by 'Ford Chip Ganassi Racing' drivers Andy Priaulx and Harry Tincknell, they will be joined on the Hill by their team mate, Billy Johnson. Johnson will be swapping his usual seat in the Ford GT race car for the Ford Mustang GT4, a track-ready race car unveiled at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, to tackle the challenging 1.16-mile Hillclimb course. 

Drift star Vaughn Gittin Jr also returns to Goodwood this year in his Mustang RTR to compete in the Festival’s first-ever Hillclimb Drift Championship.

In addition to the track action, visitors to the Ford stand at Goodwood will be able to see other models including the all-new Ford Fiesta, which is making its UK debut. Also on show will be the Ford ST-Line range of Ford Performance-inspired models, including the Fiesta ST-Line.

Activities at Goodwood House, West Sussex, begin on Thursday, June 29 with the Moving Motor Show, followed by the Festival of Speed from Friday, June 30, to Sunday, July 2.
