BENTLEY’S SPEED MACHINES PRIMED FOR GOODWOOD’S FAMOUS HILL

speed 8
Bentley will unleash some of its fastest and most powerful cars at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in July. The flying Bentleys include the 616 bhp (625 PS) and 202 mph (325 km/h) Continental GT Speed Convertible (the world’s fastest four seat convertible) and two of Bentley’s 2003 Le Mans-winning Speed 8 race cars.

Instantly recognisable with their iconic British Racing Green livery, cars No. 7 and No. 8 secured a famous first and second at Le Mans, and are set to make a special reunion ten years on at Goodwood. Brian Gush, Bentley’s Director of Motorsport, said:

“Goodwood’s atmosphere is unique and this summer we’re bringing even more speed to the Festival. The 202 mph GT Speed Convertible is set to turn heads in the supercar paddock as will our Speed 8 Le Mans cars marking the tenth anniversary of Bentley’s 2003 victory. It is also the ideal scene-setter for Bentley’s return to top-level motor sport with a GT3 race car later this year.”

Huge Crash at Pikes Peak – Jeremy Foley’s Evo


On Sunday at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb had to be red flagged due to a huge accident at the Devils Playground.

Hill Climb rookie Jeremy Foley’s Mitsubishi Evolution 8 veered off course near Mile 16, and rescue crews lifted both he and co-driver Yuri Kouznetsov to an area hospital. KRDO reportedly said Foley had a broken leg, but nothing was confirmed.

The news Article at the Colorado Springs Gazette, reported it rather like a small race incident.

On watching the video here we decided that the car was involved in a horrendous spin turning over nearly 10 times down a guesstimate 150ft drop.

It’s good that the safety equipment saved the driver and codriver from serious injury.
