The Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of the racing world’s greatest celebrations, and has been since 1993. This year, Motor Authority will be there to take in all the sights, sounds, and speed—and share it with you. So why not ride along with David Coulthard to get a bit more familiar with the famous hill climb?

In this video straight from the official Goodwood Road Racing Company, the former F1 driver takes a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT through the course, calling out each turn and describing what it’s like to drive at speed, while noting some of the places that catch drivers out—and some of the feats achieved by record holder Nick Heidfeld.
