At the Goodwood Festival of Speed in southern England, from July 1 to 3, Audi Tradition will once again have plenty for a large public to see and admire. 160,000 spectators make Goodwood the largest historic car event in the world.
The cars that Audi Tradition brings over to the home of motorsport more or less choose themselves: Auto Union Type C and Type D ‘Silver Arrows’ won the first British Grand Prix races, held on the Donington Park circuit in 1937 and 1938. Also at the starting line this year: a pre-war DKW racing sidecar outfit.
An exciting blend of traditional and modern
Every year the Earl of March and Kinrara invites numerous competition drivers and other celebrities to the event held in his extensive Goodwood estate. A typical feature of this annual highlight is the blend of former racing drivers and current stars, and also of historic cars and current competition models. One of Audi’s ‘Silver Arrow’ drivers will be Nick Mason, drummer of the Pink Floyd rock group.
