Ford Mustang GT350 and the All-New Focus RS Make Their UK Debuts at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015

The world-famous Goodwood Festival of Speed at Chichester is one of the highlights of the Summer events calendar in the UK, with some of the world's greatest and rarest cars entertaining huge crowds as they gather at the historic hill climb.

This year's Goodwood Festival of Speed saw the UK debut of a host of new cars including the new Ford Mustang GT350 and the new Ford Focus RS. Both cars were put through their paces on the famous Goodwood hill climb by Gymkhana legend Ken Block and former Top Gear 'The Stig' Ben Collins, with the new Focus RS making it's first public appearance in the UK.


The Ford UK Stand This Year

Prior to the event, Ford announced that the all-new Focus RS will deliver 350 PS when it becomes available to European customers in early 2016, and it would be among other Ford models starring at the three-level Ford Performance-themed stand at Goodwood 2015.

True to their word, the three storey stand on the front row of the Motoring Village showcased an array of performance cars from the past and future to help celebrate the recent unveiling of the all-new Ford GT in Detroit.

At the stand, visitors got to see the new Ford Mustang, the powerful third generation all-new Focus RS and the award-winning Fiesta ST and new Focus ST. The Ford Performance division also delivered the UK premiere of the all-new Ford GTsupercar and provided photo opportunities throughout the weekend, with the chance to see the vehicles up close up and personal.

Visitors to the Ford stand were also able to take in one of the finest views of the festival from the rooftop terrace; ride the Ford Performance slides from the upper to ground levels; and test their strength with the Ford Performance Power Hammer to discover whether they are a match for ST, RS or GT. Ford has been a main sponsor and supporter of the Goodwood Festival of Speed since its inception over 20 years ago.

Ken Block and the Hoonicorn

Everyone's favourite 'Hoonigan' also returned to Goodwood this year with his special 7 Litre 845BHP '65' Mustang, nicknamed 'the Hoonicorn' in tow, with special tyres that smoked for good measure. Ken didn't disappoint with plenty of sideways action on the circuit.
