Desperately Seeking Goodwood

What happens if you break down in the middle of nowhere while trying to get to Goodwood? Well, if you’re Andrea Le Bon you can expect a rally star to turn up in your hour of need.

Andrea Le Bon Stranded Goodwood

Andrea Mikkelson arrives in a flurry of revs and spraying gravel and offers to give our damsel in distress a lift. In this case he’s not riding a white stallion, but his white and green Skoda Fabia S2000 fresh from the IRC championship. However, it would appear Andrea’s navigational skills leave a little to be desired as the duo take a few wrong turns on their way to the Festival of Speed.

Sit back as we take a tour of Goodwood, with highlights including a blast through the new forest rally stage, racing a plane taking off from the airfield, racing karts on the kart track, a burning forest (huh?) and plenty of power-sliding and donuts. Eventually the pair make it safely to Goodwood House, where Lord March and Yasmin Le Bon are not-so-patiently awaiting for Andrea’s arrival.

The 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place from 30th June to 3rd July. For tickets and more information head to the Goodwood website.
