Must Watch: Goodwood Course Onboard Porsche 918

Onboard Porsche 918 GFOS 600x362 at Must Watch: Goodwood Course Onboard Porsche 918

If you always wanted to know what it’s like going round the legendary Goodwood Festival of Speed hill climb course in an exotic car, we’ve got the perfect video for you here. In this footage we go for a ride onboard a Porsche 918 Spyder as it tackles the 1.16 mile course and get a good feel for the track as well as the car.

Granted, we would have loved to see more of the car and the course instead of the cheerful reactions of the passenger. But hey, let’s have what we can get, eh?
