Right now in the United Kingdom a bucket list event for automotive enthusiasts is taking place—the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This event, which kicked off yesterday and runs through the weekend, is definitely a destination for Ford enthusiasts and this year’s event will feature a number of Blue Oval highlights, including an appearance by a Ford GT fresh from this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“Last weekend the Ford GT made history again and won at the Le Mans 24 Hours race. It was an amazing statement about our passion for performance and innovation,” said Jim Farley, chairman and CEO of Ford of Europe. “This weekend, Goodwood will be the perfect venue for us to share our full Ford Performance line-up—from the new Fiesta ST200 all the way up to the Ford GT race car fresh from Le Mans—with so many people who share our passion.”
