Video: Hitchhiking to Goodwood in a Porsche 911 GT1

One would think that someone as integral to any Goodwood event as our own Henry Hope-Frost would have organised transport to the event at which he was due to feature. Alas, that doesn’t appear to be how things panned out.

If you watch the video above, we find Henry (and a conveniently present cameraman, obviously) stranded in one of the sleepy picturesque communities nestled in the belly of the South Downs. They’re trying to flag down a ride – a perilous endeavour at the best of times – and being the jammy so-and-so that he is, catch the attention of a rather special steed. Up pulls the race-built, but road-converted, FATurbo Porsche 911 GT1 on its way to 75MM, where it was due to partake on the spectacular GT1 high speed demo. Naturally, they cause quite a stir...
