Goodwood Festival of Speed
Bentley was proud to be a part of the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017, the weekend was not only just another exciting motoring event, but a lifestyle experience with new concepts such as the Goodwood Future Lab. Of course the thrill of a daily visit by the RAF Red Arrows display team and a showcase of the abilities of the RAF typhoon is always sure to grab everyone’s attention.
The Bentley Stand was an icon in the Sponsors area, drawing thousands of people to come and see not just the cars but watch the demonstrations given by our craftsmen from Crewe. The Project 2 Game on the virtual reality simulator proved a huge success, with people desperate to beat the fastest time set by one of our current Bentley Boys. One of the observations visitors make when on our stand, is that they are amazed that they can get into our cars and experience the Bentley luxury for themselves, whilst having an opportunity to talk to the team who are all from the Crewe factory.
Some of our customers were lucky enough to be given a unique passenger experience in the Bentayga and Supersports on the famous ‘Hill Climb’, alongside the legendry Derek Bell. Andy Soucek one of our current GT3 drivers from our Motorsport programme, came to Goodwood for the very first time and was amazed about the unique event atmosphere that only Goodwood can provide. It was of course his first time to take the GT3 up the ‘hill’ as well, “one of the most demanding drives I have ever done”
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is an amazing UK event drawing visitors from around the globe and we just can’t wait to be back in 2018.
