NASCAR to race at Goodwood Motor Circuit

12 December 2018

Goodwood Motor Circuit will see a dozen NASCAR cars set off at high-speed around its track in unison, for the first time in April.

The display will take place at Goodwood’s 77th Members’ Meeting, taking place on 6th and 7th of April 2019.

It will be the first-time multiple NASCAR machines will assemble as a group to take on the famous track.

NASCAR has made solo appearances at past Members’ Meetings. Among those demonstrating these wild machines were Max Chilton in 2016, Mike Skinner in 2017 with his Toyota Tundra Truck and in 2018 Emanuele Pirro took to the wheel of one of these intimidating muscle race cars.

The announcement follows the news that the other high-speed demos will feature BMW M1 Procars and Le Mans Prototypes at the Meeting.

NASCAR can trace its routes to the 1940s and the infamous ‘bootleggers’ who modified their cars in order to outrun the Police as they attempted to smuggle their moonshine across the southern states of America. Today, modern NASCAR engines produce around 850bhp from 5.8 litre pushrod V8s; this means the cars can achieve around 200mph in a straight line.

“I think for most fans NASCAR is all about the noise, and we will have that in abundance.” Said Matt Hearn, Motorsport Content Manager. “The old-school pushrod V8 design is one of the greatest sounding engines of all time, and having over a dozen of them on track is sure to stop everyone in their tracks. It certainly won’t be for the faint-hearted!”
