Goodwood Festival

This year's Goodwood Festival of Speed reads like a Who's Who of rally stars and cars. As in "who have we seen here before, Geraldine?"

Goodwood Festival  subaruCompeting on the Hannu Mikkola-designed rally stage will be the likes of Colin McRae, Petter Solberg, Stig Blomqvist and Paddy Hopkirk.

They'll be driving everything from classic Minis right up to the latest WRC machines on the Forest Stage. It's also been lengthened this year and, hold onto your Thermos now, has even had a jump added in. McRae will be driving his new R4 rally car in public for the first time at Goodwood, which takes place on 22-24 June.

Also lined up for rally action are Michele Mouton in an Audi Quattro and Russell Brookes in his Opel Manta 400. Walter Rohrl was asked, but was busy "creosoting his fence". Allegedly.

The list of rally cars reads like a bobble-hatter's dream (in the loosest sense of the word) garage and includes Mini Cooper S, Lancia Delta Integrale, Ford Escorts Mk1 and 2, Lancia Stratos, Porsche 911, MG Metro 6R4, Ford RS200, Renault 5 Maxi Turbo... you get the idea.
