Festival of Speed fan? See how you do in our quiz

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is upon us, with several spectacular new cars announced, a host of racing superstars, and some amazing cars already winding their way up the famous hill in front of Goodwood House.

The Festival of Speed is a regular fixture in most enthusiasts’ calendars now, but how well do you know the event, and how much attention have you been paying to this year’s stars and metal?

We’ve put together a short quiz to test your knowledge – so you can see how well you know one of the calendar’s most prominent motoring events.

#1. In which year did the first Goodwood Festival of Speed take place?

The first Goodwood Festival of Speed took place in 1993 – and it was a bit smaller than it is today!

#2. The Fiat S76, known as the ‘Beast of Turin’, is a firm Festival favourite. How many cylinders does its massive 28.4-litre engine displace?

Amazingly, it’s a four-cylinder – meaning more than 7 litres per cylinder…

#3. In 2017, this sculpture celebrated not an automotive marque, but an individual. Who was it?

This unique sculpture celebrated Bernie Ecclestone.

#4. Which of these outright records and fastest runs is not currently held by the VW ID.R, which set the Goodwood record in 2019?

While the ID R is the fastest electric car at the Nordschleife, the overall record is held by Porsche with its 919 Hybrid Evo.

#5. The Ford Electric SuperVan makes its debut at the 2022 Festival. What engine powered the original Supervan?

The original Supervan used a 435hp, 5.0-litre Gurney-Weslake V8.

#6. The previous Goodwood record was set by Nick Heidfeld in a McLaren MP4/13, but in which year?

Nick Heidfeld set his record run in 1999.

#7. Which iconic race car did seven-time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi drive up the hill in 2015?

Rossi was lucky enough to take Mazda’s 1991 Le Mans-winning 787B up the hill that year.

#8. Prodrive’s P25 is one of 2022’s Goodwood stars. Which celebrated designer was responsible for the wide-arched shape?

Peter Stevens was the designer behind the Impreza WRC, the 22B, and the new P25.

#9. How many 500cc Grand Prix motorcycle titles has 2022 Goodwood guest Wayne Rainey won?

Wayne Rainey won three 500cc titles, in 1990, 1991 and 1992.

#10. The AMG One just misses out on having the world’s smallest road car V6. Which manufacturer holds that accolade?

Mitsubishi offered a 1597cc V6 in some Japanese models in the 1990s – 2cc smaller than the AMG One’s (substantially more powerful) unit.



Well done, you must be a Goodwood regular!

Bad luck! You’ve just done the quiz equivalent of going into the hay bales at Molecomb
