Anybody who’s ever gone through childhood must have, at one point, been transfixed to the Hanna Barbera’s classic cartoons, Wacky Races. The unforgettable ensemble of characters – including Peter Perfect, Dick Dastardley & Mutley, and Penelope Pitstop – have all left us wishing to become race car drivers driving our very own wacky race car.
If you’re going to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, then your wishes are about to come true. Almost, that is.
A full set of 11 real-life Wacky race cars will be displayed at the aforementioned car festival providing fans of the cartoon from all shapes and sizes the opportunity to see their favorite wacky race cars up close and personal.

These cars had never before been driven around town – and no one even knew they existed – until they made a surprise appearance in the streets of Chichester in West Sussex, England before making its way to the festival, where it will be displayed in a specially built desert set exclusively made for the cars.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed will be open from July 3 up to July 5, and while nobody will be allowed to get behind the wheel of these fantasy cars, everyone is welcome to take pictures and marvel at the very same cars we all wished we could have when we were young kids.
