Goodwood is one of the most famous racing circuits in all of Great Britain.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Since 1948, this former RAF airfield near Chichester in Sussex has been home to fast and furious driving of every stripe, from the marathon ‘Goodwood Nine Hours’ events that were held in the 1950s through to the modern ‘Goodwood Festival of Speed’, the annual hill climb featuring classic motor-racing vehicles that has been held since 1993. Graham Hill raced his first single-seater car here, and it is the site where Stirling Moss’s great professional motor-racing career came to its abrupt end.
Now you can be part of that heritage too. With a range of once-in-a-lifetime experiences offered by Extreme Element, the UK’s leading extreme sports specialist, speed freaks will get the chance to live out their wildest fantasies at this prestigious home of British motorsport.
Extreme Element is a UK-based online agency that was founded in 2006 as an alternative to other gift-day sites, offering customers a range of extreme sports to experience, including options for bungee jumping, power boating and, of course, track driving.
Petrol heads can browse the on-track experiences available from the company on its website. These unique experiences offer you the chance to test your mettle and lay down some rubber on the famous circuit. For £135 customers can take some of the most powerful American muscle cars out for a spin in this British countryside setting.
The Ford Mustang GT is possibly the most famous muscle car of them all. It has been in production for almost as long as races have been held at Goodwood. The world-renowned motor plant founded by Henry Ford has been producing these huge beasts since 1964, and the latest model boasts a 5.0 litre engine and top speed of 160mph.
With its outlandishly huge 8.0 litre engine the Dodge Viper can accelerate from 0-60mph in under four seconds – and you can experience the extreme adrenaline rush of harnessing that kind of power for yourself.
However, there’s no muscle car more redolent of driving through the States than the Chevrolet Corvette. The C5, the latest generation of this all-American classic famed in story and song, offers all the grunt of a 5.7 litre v8 engine.
Of course, all this Americana may seem heretical to you. Have no fear, though – if you want to get a little patriotic and dewy-eyed during your driving experience, Extreme Element can also help. Your £135 can also buy you a day with a creature of refined British speed, the Jaguar D-Type. The predecessor of the iconic E-Type offers a classic driving experience at a classic British track. Rule Britannia, indeed!
