Goodwood 2014 highlights

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is over for another year, but what a fantastic event it was!

The crowds were delighted to see scores of iconic cars take to the famous track while Audi fans took on our offroad challenge to earn the 'King of quattro' title.

Audi Sport legend Allan McNish made an appearance to sign autographs and talk to fans, while iconic cars including the Audi R18 e-tron quattro and the Audi 90 IMSA-GTO sped around the Goodwood circuit in front of an impressive crowd.

Oculus Rift is a state of the art piece of technology that is enjoyed through a head-mounted display. For the first time ever, The Audi Moving Motor Show area played host to an "Oculus Rift Virtual Experience".

Visitors were given the opportunity to be driven around a simulated Silverstone Circuit in an R8 or RS 6 Avant by Audi Sport legend and three time Le Mans 24 hours winner, Allan McNish.

 

 

'King of quattro' 4 x 4 event

The Audi 'King of quattro' offroad experience gave fans an opportunity to tackle a special course in either a Q3, Q5, Q7, A4 allroad quattro or A6 allroad quattro.

Silverstone instructors gave demonstrations of the circuit to guests, who then had the opportunity to drive themselves and have the performance of their lap logged.
