Press Kit Description

The ultra-high-performance Ford GT road car makes its Goodwood Hillclimb debut alongside the Ford Mustang GT4 race car on show in Europe for the first time, at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Ford Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Billy Johnson, Andy Priaulx and Harry Tincknell are taking the wheel of the 216 mph (347 km/h) Ford GT to tackle the challenging 1.16-mile (1.9-kilometre) Goodwood Hillclimb course. All three drivers are fresh from competing at the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours in the sister Ford GT race car, where Priaulx, Tincknell and Pipo Derani grabbed the runner up spot in the GTE Pro Class with the #67 Ford GT during a thrilling finish.

The track-ready Ford Mustang GT4 also is piloted by Johnson, and Ford’s Le Mans stars are joined at Goodwood by drifting ace Vaughn Gittin Jr., returning with his bespoke Mustang RTR to participate in the festival’s first ever drift event.
