Speed record at Goodwood

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a place where a wide variety of cars can be admired. The event in England is an annual event with modern and historic cars. This weekend Nigel Mansell drove his old Williams (the FW14B) with which he became world champion in 1992.

But it is also a moment for new cars to show themselves to the world. The electric McMurtry Speirling was presented at last year's festival and it was announced that the speed record would be broken with this car. In 2022, that promise was followed through with a new fastest time of 39.08. Former F1 driver Chilton was behind the wheel.
