Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017 — Live stream!

29 June, 2017

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is about to kick off for another year of high-speed radness and we’ve got all the action streaming here LIVE for the whole weekend. 

Although only three Kiwis appear on the drivers/riders list, they’re some damn fine choices at that. Eleven-time Isle of Man TT winner and Wellingtonian Bruce Anstey will Padgett’s Motorcycles Honda RCV213-S which he premiered at the recent TT on the Isle’. Local drifting legend ‘Mad’ Mike Whiddett has made his annual pilgrimage to Lord March’s estate to for the third consecutive year, taking his MADBUL FD RX-7.

And finally ’70s Formula 1 driver Howden Ganley, who hasn’t been assigned a specific vehicle on the list as of yet. Unfortunately Rod Millen is too caught up climbing mountains (centennial celebrations for the Pikes Peak Hillclimb) to attend this years festivities.

For those of you who are still scratching your heads wondering what the hell a Goodwood Festival is, who better to give you a quick intro than Lord March himself (hat tip to The Telegraph):

“This is our 25th Festival of Speed and I’m looking forward to it as much as ever … our Festival theme for 2017 is ‘Peaks of Performance – Motorsport’s Game Changers’. To illustrate the theme, we have filled the paddocks with cars and bikes that were so much faster, and more sophisticated, than their rivals that in many cases the rules were changed to restore competition.

“As ever we are celebrating lots of important anniversaries, providing us with a platform on which to create a Festival that reflects the absolute greatest cars, bikes, drivers and riders. Then, added to this core of the event, we will have a fantastic gathering of supercars, F1 teams, the amazing Goodwood Action Sports (GAS) bike riders, the very latest road cars and those sensational Group B cars out on the Forest Rally Stage … nowhere else in the world will you see such great cars and bikes all gathered together in one place at one time.

I look forward to seeing you all here – and I hope you have a great time.”

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A passion for classics and customs

In the highly competitive field of New Zealand classic and custom restorations, reputations are won or lost on the ability to maintain consistently high standards of workmanship. A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
