The winning run at this year’s Goodwood Festival of the Speed involves the serious commitment and the lots of lovely V12 noise.
As we discussed recently, it is awesome to see irreplaceable classic cars lobbed up a Goodwood Festival of Speed’s hill climb, despite the risks. And if that involves the V12-powered Group C racing car, we are especially interested.
With that in mind, we are happy to spend the few minutes watching Justin Law – of XJ220 specialists Don Law Racing – wrestle the Jaguar XJR-12D up the tight, tricky course to bag a fastest time of this year’s festival.
Last year didn’t go so well for Law and this particular XJR, with the IMSA GTP machine shedding the wheel near the top of the course.
He is had plenty of the prior success here to offset that hiccup though – and thanks to his 2017 success, he now occupies four slots of the top 10 leaderboard.
Nick Heidfeld still holds the fastest run with the 41.6sec effort, set in 1999 aboard the McLaren MP4/13 – before F1 cars were banned from setting times.
