The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a tradition in the United Kingdom since 1993 initiated by the Earl of March in order to re-establish the Goodwood estate as a destination of British racing history. One of the most famous events that take place here is the annual hill-climb in which racers and manufacturers compete to see who can put a car through the uphill course fastest. There are many other events as well in this multi-day automobile extravaganza.
Nissan will be making another appearance this year after last year’s world record setting run in which stunt driver Terry Grant navigated the entire hill climb in the Nissan Juke… on two wheels! (Video below. There’s a few points where he almost loses control!) In addition to the stunt run, Nissan will also be sending the LEAF NISMO RC up the hill for the first ever timed run for an electric racing car.
On display at the festival will be the latest Nissan GT-R “Track Pack” and the Juke-R along with supercars and exotics from just about every car company. We won’t have cars driving on two wheels, but if you want to check out our inventory you can always stop by Nissan of Clinton. It’s probably an easier commute than Goodwood, UK too!
