For the true enthusiast, there are few events that satisfy as completely as the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Both concourse and racing event, Goodwood offers the best of both worlds in an environment steeped in history and tradition. Lexus will be taking advantage of this year's Festival to show off its LF-A supercar and a racing version of the IS-F, among other interesting treats.
The Lexus LF-A
will certainly be one of the main attractions with its 500hp V10 engine and endurance-racing credentials. The Lexus IS-F
race car will not only be showing, it will be going - right up the hill climb course. The IS-F is also an endurance racing veteran, having completed this year's Nurburgring 24-hour race.
Also on show will be Toyota's TF108 F1 race car, piloted by F1 driver Timo Glock. The TF108 is the last Toyota F1 car to be designed prior to the current season's restrictions on aerodynamic development.
Finally, a very intriguing AWD Celica GT4-X built by Fensport and sporting 700hp (see gallery below) will be on hand to show off what grass roots racing can do. This car will also tackle the hill climb, and is sure to be one of the best spectacles of the event.
