Michelin Supercar Run to be timed for the first time

For the first time in Goodwood Festival of Speed history, supercars will battle against the clock as part of this year’s Michelin Supercar Run.

Road-going supercars will do battle in a bid to reveal which manufacturer produces the fastest production machine.

With representation from many of the world’s prestige manufacturers during the timed section on the Saturday afternoon of the event, an intense contest is guaranteed on the 1.16-mile hillclimb.

The Festival of Speed, now firmly established as the world’s leading outdoor automotive festival, will feature the global launch of Honda’s all-new NSX, which will be the first supercar to feature a three-motor hybrid powertrain.

Other new models appearing include Volvo’s new V60 Polestar – already a winner in race trim in Australia in its debut season and the Jaguar XFR-S Sportsbrake.

As ever, the Moving Motor Show, held on Thursday, 26 June, will be a hotbed of manufacturer involvement with presences confirmed by: Audi, BMW, Citroen, Dacia, Ferrari, Ford, GKN, Honda, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Rolls Royce, SEAT, Skoda, Toyota and Volvo.
