Anthony Davidson, Karl Wendlinger and Jochen Mass to race in spectacular timed pursuit!
Goodwood will reverberate to the howl of a 2013 Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 W04 in full flight, when British racing hero Anthony Davidson drives (in a car identical to that which Lewis Hamilton raced in the manufacturer F1 World Championship and won the Hungarian GP) in a spectacular sprint handicap that will also feature racing legends Karl Wendlinger driving the latest 462bhp AMG GT road car and Jochen Mass in the famous – or infamous – AMG 300 SEL ‘Red Pig’.
The awesome triple-car shoot-out has been laid on by Goodwood Members’ Meeting Official Timing Partner IWC Schaffhausen, and will be broadcast live here on the Goodwood Road & Racing website from around 12:30hrs GMT on Saturday March 21st.
The shoot-out is sure to be one of the most memorable highlights of a full programme of world-class Historic Motorsport scheduled to be broadcast live on GRR over Members’ Meeting weekend – our unmissable coverage starts at 08:00hrs on Saturday, so don’t forget to tune in.
The Mercedes-AMG F1 shoot-out will kick-off with a warm-up lap for all three cars, followed by a two-lap pursuit with a staggered start requiring each driver to commit everything to the ensuing chase. The hope is that all three Mercedes-AMGs will cross the line together, in a spectacular finale along the famous Goodwood start/finish straight. The slowing-down lap will offer a final chance to see and hear these wonderful cars together on the circuit before they return to the IWC display area in the paddock for the remainder of what is set to be a fabulous weekend.
Check out the video above for a preview of the howls and thunder we’re expecting, and if you haven’t bought tickets to the event – check here for availability – make sure you’re glued to our live broadcast so you don’t miss a thing.
It’s been more than twenty years since a modern F1 car was driven in anger around the Goodwood Motor Circuit – and frankly, we can’t say when it’s going to happen again!
