This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, from 2 to 4 July 2010, as always will be a heaven for petrolheads as they get to see the best of super and sportscars from all over the world in action. Honda too will be exhibiting some its racing cars and motorcycles, but the main attraction with them is the chance to test drive two of their hottest car, the new CR-Z and the Honda Civic Type R MUGEN, over the Hillclimb route.
Special guests will join the Honda Racing Team to pilot its BTCC-prepared Civic up the hill, World Superbike riders Jonathan Rea and Eugene Laverty will be riding on Saturday and Sunday and Honda racing drivers and riders will be taking part in a special ‘Question of Motorsport’ live quiz on each day of the festival.
Two Honda cars have been made available for members of the public to drive at the Moving Motor Show on 1 July: the CR-Z, Honda’s new sporty hybrid, brings driving thrills with low emissions, while the Honda Civic Type R MUGEN – one of only 20 being made – will use its 240PS high-revving engine to excite drivers over the renowned Hillclimb route.
On the Honda stand at Goodwood, visitors will be able to view and experience products from across the Honda range, including cars, motorcycles, lawnmowers, generators and even solar panels.
Each day, a round of the infamous ‘Question of Motorsport’ will be held, featuring Honda stars from past and present. This fun quiz will be hosted by Tim Harvey, former BTCC champ and Porsche Carrera Cup racer.
