Latvala to make his Goodwood debut in Volkswagen Polo WRC
Volkswagen driver Jari-matti Latvala will make his debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week.
While this will be the Finn’s first time at the West Sussex festival, Volkswagen has run the Polo R WRC up the hill before – with Carlos Sainz and Dieter Depping both driving it in 2013.
Latvala has an increasingly impressive rally car collection of his own, but he’s looking forward to seeing what the Festival has on offer this week.
“I’ve heard a lot of people talking about Goodwood,” said Latvala, “and I came close to coming here a few years ago, but Mikko [Hirvonen] came instead. I know it’s the biggest event of this kind in Britain and I’m sure it will be a lot of fun to drive the car and look at what else is around there.”
Latvala is the only one of the current crop of WRC drivers attending this year, but there’s the usual vast array of cars from every generation at the Forest Rally Stage at the top of the hill.
