We celebrated Land Rover design, capability and adventure like never before at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017. Here are our four top moments from the captivating weekend.
1. NEW RANGE ROVER VELAR MADE ITS GOODWOOD DEBUT
New Range Rover Velar took centre stage on the Land Rover stand on its Goodwood debut. Excitement grew around the revolutionary new model, with visitors keen to see the latest addition to the Range Rover family. We caught up with our visitors as they explored the innovative design and watched the vehicle in action on the iconic Goodwood hill in the ‘first-glance’ category. Watch what they had to say on the day below:
2. GUESTS HEEDED THE CALL TO ADVENTURE
A firm favourite for attendees, this year’s off-road course didn’t disappoint. Guests had the chance to be passengers in a variety of Land Rover models with our professional drivers. From steep tilts and unnerving sharp drops, to pushing the limits of our vehicles’ wading depths, this event showcased Land Rover's off-road capabilities first-hand.
3. AN ALL-NEW DISCOVERY
Our most versatile family SUV yet, All-New Discovery was on display at Goodwood for the first time this year and also demonstrated its capability off-road. Its best-in-class wheel articulation, approach and departure angles, as well as the increased wade depth, allowed us to push the vehicle to its limit on our Land Rover Experience course. Visitors also explored its ingenious features, including the Intelligent Seat Fold option and powered inner tailgate, as excitement built around the Land Rover stand throughout the day.
4. LAND ROVER BEN AINSLIE RACING VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE
Land Rover stand attendees got the chance to be sailors for the day with Land Rover BAR virtual reality. The experience allowed guests to get on board the high-tech Land Rover BAR boat, learn how to manoeuvre its sails and reach gripping speeds of up to 50-60 mph.
