Video: The six fastest SpeedWeek Shootout times

Goodwood SpeedWeek presented by Mastercard took inspiration from many elements of our best loved events but perhaps the most thrilling was borrowing the idea of a one-lap, timed competition. But instead of claiming the fastest time up the Goodwood Hill, it would be the Goodwood Motor Circuit outright record up for grabs. With such a cracking honour up for grabs the drivers were nothing if not committed.

One such over the weekend was Harry King, a first-timer here at Goodwood but you would not know it from the way he hurled his Porsche 911 Carrera GT3 Cup round this particular set of corners in West Sussex. A very valiant effort which saw him within touching distance of some even more specialised machinery in a time of 1 minute 17.443 seconds. Just a hair quicker was Goodwood stalwart Gordon Sheddon in the Audi R8 LMS with a time of 1m 17.392s.

After those two, things started to get really impressive; Lukas Halusa setting a 1m 15.890s in the McLaren-Cosworth M23, just pipped by the car’s contemporary competitor, the Lotus-Cosworth 77 driven by Markus Werner in a time of 1m 14.324s.

The final two were James Cottingham who gave it everything in the Dallara SP1 LMP to set a time of 1m 11.573s. Having broken his own record on Saturday with a time of 1m 09.914s, Nick Padmore again made the Arrows-Ford A11 howl around Goodwood, winning in a slightly slower 1m 09.973s. Speaking after the race Padmore claimed to not remember much of the lap but for those of us watching it was unforgettable.
