Tuthill Porsche will attend this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed as part of the 70th anniversary of Porsche celebrations. Our 2017 Safari Classic Rally-winning 911 will be one of the cars showcased at the world-famous gathering.
The event is part of an exciting programme designed to commemorate a lineage of world-beating road and racing sports cars that began with the 356 in 1948. A dedicated class of the finest Stuttgart-conceived machines will run on the hillclimb course, and the Festival will also feature many former World Sportscar Championship and Le Mans 24 Hour winners in prototype and GT guise, as well as Grand Prix, IndyCar and rally weapons from Porsche history.
“Porsche has been one of our most loyal and enthusiastic partners, supporting the Festival of Speed since 1995 and the Revival since 2010,” said event founder, The Duke of Richmond and Gordon. “This year, Porsche will become the first manufacturer to create the central display at the Festival for the third time, underlining the huge contribution from this iconic manufacturer of world-beating racing cars and road cars.
“Porsche’s presence at FOS this summer won’t be limited to the Hillclimb and Central Feature. The firm’s stand will showcase its full range of production cars, with a glimpse into the technology of the future. Visitors will be able to experience an exhilarating ride in the all-new Cayenne as well as take part in virtual races on hi-tech simulators.”
“It is a delight to be part of such a momentous celebration,” said Richard Tuthill. “We look forward to joining with the extended Porsche community to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the incredible company from Stuttgart who changed the way the world thought about racing and sports cars.”
