FES­TI­VAL OF SPEED

Classic Bike (UK) - - EVENTS -

HIGH SO­CI­ETY MEETS HIGH OC­TANE AT GOOD­WOOD’S SUM­MER SPEC­TAC­U­LAR Bikes may be only part of the line up at Good­wood, but the 25th edi­tion of the event is set to cheer the heart of any petrol­head. One of the high­lights for clas­sic bike fans is sure to be multi-world Su­per­bike cham­pion Carl Fog­a­rty thrash­ing the Na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum’s 1970 Bol d’or win­ning rac­ing triple and their 1971 ex-mike Hail­wood and Ray Pick­rell F750 ma­chine up the fa­mous hill. We grabbed a quick ride on both bikes last month, but at Good­wood the F750 ma­chine will be run­ning un­si­lenced as the fac­tory in­tended. And Foggy will also be giv­ing Tri­umph’s new Moto2 mo­tor – the con­trol en­gine for the 2019 season – a run. Both should be some­thing to hear. Two-wheeled ac­tion gets un­der­way on Fri­day; the hill climb cli­max is a timed shoot-out on Sun­day. good­wood.com

It’s a mad mix ’n’ match on the Good­wood hill
