Goodwood Festival of Speed: Notes From The Paddock 5, Shoot-Out!

One of the major draws for the Festival crowds are the timed runs, and with the current F1 cars ruled out for that competition it draws in a massive variety of historic and contemporary machinery.

It was always going to be a massive hill to climb (no pun intended) to beat Sebastien Loeb in the 875 bhp Peugeot 208 Pikes Peak Special and so it proved.

The final timing list showed the 9 times WRC Champ ahead, but not by as much as many had predicted, that thanks to some very spirted efforts from Michael Bartels in a stunningly liveried (and brand spanking new!) Maserati MC12, commemorating the centenary of the marque, and from Kenny Brack in the fabulous long-tail McLaren F1 GTR.

Also of note was a great series of runs from Jann Mardenborough in the very race dirty Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, brought straight to the festival by Team RJN from its rigors at the Nurburgring, and from Ecurie Ecosse regular Toe Twyman in the historic LEC F1 car.

There as disaster earlier in the festival though for Anthony Reid who wiped the front left corner off the gorgeously brutal Marsh Plant Aston Martin V8 on Friday after hitting the infamous flint wall, there was damage too in the super car run for the NISMO GT-R road car driven by Sir Chris Hoy when he misjudged his braking and ploughed into the hay bales – Scratch one of only two current road cars! The 2010 Rolex 24 Hours winning Action Express Riley Porsche came to grief yesterday meanwhile, front right and side body damage caused as the car hit the bales on an untimed run.
