Goodwood

This is what happens at the Goodwood Revivial

Inspired by our recent jaunt to the frankly spectacular Goodwood Members Meeting (basically Britain’s greatest car club), we’ve been sucked into a time-wasting lunch hour reverie, watching footage from the public equivalent: the tweed-heavy, Castrol20W/50 fugged Goodwood Revival.

F1: the noise debate continues in Sepang

Bernie Ecclestone rocked up in Sepang this morning and threw himself almost immediately in to the noise debate. “It’s a little louder than we thought,” he told Sky, “If we could just get it up a little more then it will be alright.” Yesterday however Sebastian Vettel didn’t hold back in making his position clear; […]

Last year’s champ Sebastien Ogier picked up where he left off with a confident win, followed by local specialist and excellently-named Bryan Bouffier. Hearty congratulations to both.

Kris Meeke is back in WRC

Top Gear is delighted to be able to tell you that our favourite rallyist, Kris Meeke, has landed himself a peach of a gig for next year – as a works driver for the Citroen WRC team. He’s the first of Citroen’s 2014 driver line-up to be announced, and – to our minds at least […]
