26 June, 2015

The running of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed, on until June 28, looks to be one of the most diverse yet. Every cornerstone of international motoring and motorsport is covered, to the point where selecting a panel of highlights is rendered an impossible task for even the most opinionated car fan. Check out the provisional entry list below, and you’ll understand what we mean.

Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, BMW, Formula 1, Nascar, drifting, IndyCar, Honda, Ducati, and many more are there in incredible numbers. There is something for absolutely everyone.

New Zealand influence can also be seen throughout the line-up, with the Porsche 919 Hybrid that Earl Bamber recently helped race to victory at Le Mans, Greg Murphy’s 2009 Sprint Gas Racing Holden VE Commodore V8 Supercar, ‘Mad Mike’ Whiddett’s Mazda RX-7, and McLarens galore also in attendance.

To view all of these incredible machines on the track, check out the live feed below.

Taipan – surpassing interest

“It’s merely a passing interest,” insists Selby — despite owning three variants of the classic VW Beetle, including an unusual VW van that was sold as a body kit for a Subaru. In his defence he points to a 1961 Ford Thunderbird, a car that he converted to right-hand drive. However, on the VW side of the ledger, since he opened Allison Autos in Whanganui 27 years ago, Selby has built 15 VW-powered Formula First cars, followed by a beach buggy, restored a derelict Karmann Ghia, and hot-rodded a common or garden Beetle into something that has to be seen to be believed. As speed is not something generally associated with classic VWs, though, Selby is still waiting for this particular modification to catch on amongst the hot rod faithful.

Travelling companion

It’s easy to see why the Morris Minor Traveller was one of the best-loved variants of the Morris Minor. Introduced in 1953, it was equipped with the same independent torsion bar front suspension, drum brakes, and rack and pinion steering as its saloon sibling but, with their foldable rear seat increasing versatility, many Travellers were used as trade vehicles, says Derek Goddard. Derek and Gail Goddard, the owners of this superbly restored example, have run Morris Minors since before they were married in 1974.
“Our honeymoon vehicle was a blue Morris Minor van — it was a rust bucket,” says Derek.
