Watch Ford Machines Blast Up The Goodwood Hill

We’re excited to demonstrate the Ford GT… — Steven Armstrong, Ford

Starting today an automotive extravaganza is underway in the United Kingdom and Ford Performance is bringing some of its top hardware to show off at the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s famed hill climb. Driver Andy Priaulx will wheel the Ford GT production car, Billy Johnson will drive the Mustang GT4 turn-key road racer, and drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. will slide around in his 750-horsepower Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-D exhibition car.

Ford GT race driver Andy Priaulx will have the pleasure ascending the hill in a production Ford GT.

“We’re excited to demonstrate the Ford GT – our fastest ever road car – to a Goodwood audience that shares our passion for performance,” Steven Armstrong, group vice president and president, Europe Middle East and Africa, Ford Motor Company, said.

This is definitely a bucket-list event for auto enthusiasts, but if you can’t be there, you can catch all the action on the livestream above.

“The Ford GT supercar serves as a test bed for new ideas for future vehicles across the Ford line-up. That spirit of innovation and sporting inspiration can also be seen in the all-new Ford Fiesta and new S-MAX ST‑Line at our Goodwood showstand,” Steven added.

Andy, Billy, and Vaughn will make several runs from today through Sunday, so see the sidebar for the full schedule to plan the rest of your week accordingly.

In addition to the hardware climbing the hill, Ford will have a three-story display stand filled with vehicles and virtual experiences, like a 360-degree virtual reality lap of Silverstone in the Ford GT.

While the Ford GT is the big star of the Ford effort, Billy Johnson will also blast up the hill in the turn-key Mustang GT4 road racer and Vaughn Gittin Jr. will drift up the hill in his Vortech-supercharged, Ford Performance Aluminator XS-powered Mustang RTR exhibition machine.
