Ford At The Goodwood Festival Of Speed
Ford’s FF1, a Formula Ford-inspired 1.0-litre track car, will make its public UK debut in the UK at the 20th Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.
The three-cylinder EcoBoost-powered FF1 will sit side-by-side with some of the world’s most exotic supercars following its astonishing pace around Germany’s famed Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit.
The single-seat, road-legal car with a top speed of almost 160mph, completed a lap in 7min 22sec to register the eleventh-fastest time ever on the circuit, putting it ahead of supercars such as the Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda. No other three- or four-cylinder car has posted a faster time at the legendary circuit. Driven gently, the featherweight FF1 is capable of more than 100mpg without modifications.
The FF1 will tackle the famous Goodwood hillclimb and it will also be on display in the FoS-TECH area during the Festival, which has become the UK’s leading exhibition promoting high-tech green and environmentally friendly technologies.
In addition, Ford will be showcasing the all-new and highly-acclaimed Fiesta ST at the Moving Motor Show, a preview day for the Festival of Speed that gives car enthusiasts the chance to see the industry’s latest models, with manufacturers using the famous Goodwood Hill to demonstrate their newest products.
Ford is a founding supporter of the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival, and will be fully represented at both these prestigious events in July and September. On its 20th anniversary, the Festival of Speed will be celebrating some of the best elements of the event’s highly successful history.
