Goodwood to feature Touring Car Legends

Jay Nagley

The Goodwood Festival of Speed will feature historic touring cars from the last 40 years.

One of the oldest cars is an Alfa Romeo 1750 GTAM from 1970, and some of the most historic models ever to race will be on show. Our favourite would have to be the 1984 Jaguar XJS. It was Jaguar's success in "tintop" racing on both sides of the Atlantic that led to the Le-Mans winning XJR-9 of 1988. That was powered by the same XJS engine, possibly the last serious Sports Car racer to be powered by a genuine road car engine.
