Grapevine: Red Bull, BAR to Attend Goodwood

The BAR and Red Bull Racing teams have confirmed they will attend this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, which takes place on 24-26 this month

Grapevine: Red Bull, BAR to Attend Goodwood

Red Bull's Tonio Liuzzi as well as GP2 driver Neel Jani will be joined by sporting director Christian Horner and Scot David Coulthard, both attending as guests.

Driving aboard Red Bull's F1 car, both Liuzzi and Jani will complete Goodwood's famous 1.1 mile hillclimb numerous times throughout the weekend.

"It's great to be taking part in such a fantastic motoring event," said Liuzzi. "Goodwood is really well known and when you look at who's going to be there, it's an honour to be joining them - there are some real heroes on the list.

"I'm also looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the F1 car again and being let loose on the hillclimb. My last event was Nurburgring in Germany last month, so I'll be looking to burn some rubber and give a real performance."

In their eighth consecutive year of participation at Goodwood, Honda will field their biggest ever entry of five Formula One cars, including this year's BAR007, which will be driven by Jenson Button and Takuma Sato.

BAR's sporting director Gil de Ferran and third driver Anthony Davidson will also be in action at Goodwood, taking to the wheel of the Honda NSX GT race car from the 2004 24 Hours of Nurburgring.

"Goodwood is a great event for the fans as they can get really close to the cars when we're doing our runs and can walk around the paddock and see the team working from just a few feet away," said Button. "It's amazing and a very special experience for them."

How studying Schumacher helped make Coulthard a McLaren F1 mainstay

Winner of 13 grands prix including Monaco and survivor of a life-changing plane crash, David Coulthard could be forgiven for having eased into a quiet retirement – but, as MARK GALLAGHER explains, in fact he’s busier than ever, running an award-winning media company and championing diversity in motor racing. Not bad for someone who, by his own admission, wasn’t quite the fastest driver of his generation…
