Last weekend in Goodwood, the “Week of Speed” was successfully held, replacing the traditional summer racing festival, including breaking the track record that lasted five years.

The author of a new record – however, like the previous one – Briton Nick Padmore, who won the official FIA championship in racing in historic Formula 1 cars in 2015.

In Speed ​​Week, he piloted the Arrows A11 with a 3.5-liter Ford Cosworth DFR V8 engine, which was used by Derek Warrick in the 1989 World Championship. Incidentally, this machine was developed by Ross Brown, who collaborated with the Arrows team in the late 80s.

Padmore completed a lap on the classic track in 1 minute. 9.914 seconds, overlapping its previous achievement by more than eight seconds.

In any case, the record was expected to be broken this weekend, as Formula 1 cars in Goodwood usually compete in high-speed hill climb competitions, but this time the races took place on a historic 3.8 km track that hosted the races. of different levels, including uncounted Formula 1 races, from 1948 to 1966.

At the same time, it was assumed that a new record would be set on the unique electric sports prototype Volkswagen ID R, but the German company refused to come to Goodwood due to restrictions associated with the pandemic.
