Volkswagen ID.R Gunning For New Goodwood Record

Volkswagen has declared that the ID.R will return to Goodwood levels of competition later this calendar year, when it enters the 2020 Goodwood SpeedWeek from October sixteen via eighteen. SpeedWeek will correctly switch the once-a-year Goodwood Festival of Pace and Goodwood Revival this calendar year, as the two events were canceled thanks to the world pandemic, but unfortunately, no spectators will be allowed to go to.

The Volkswagen ID.R’s goal this October is a doozy: smash a interval Goodwood Motor Circuit lap record set way back in 1965, when motorists Bruce McLaren and Jackie Stewart each and every set similar 1:20.4 lap periods in an unofficial Formula 1 race. If there’s time, Volkswagen would definitely like to conquer the 1:eighteen.217 modern record, much too, set by Nick Padmore in a Lola T70 Spyder in 2015.
