Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button set to drive the McLaren MP4-12C at Goodwood
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is looking more and more like a can’t-miss weekend with the way the whole event is shaping up.
In addition to the plethora of activities that are already on-hand for the event, McLaren will be joining in on all the fun by bringing their new MP4-12C supercar to Goodwood. Those in attendance will be treated to quite a show as both McLaren Formula One drivers, reigning champion Jenson Button and former champ Lewis Hamilton take turns driving the MP4-12C up the Goodwood Hill during the event’s Supercar Run.
That’s not all, too. Both drivers will also have the opportunity to further test McLaren’s new supercar prototype, the VP9 Validation Prototype Car. Among the features we can expect from the new version is that it will come with a carbon fiber splitter, diffuser, engine covers, engine bay panels, and seat backs, not to mention the fact that it will use lightweight forged-alloy wheels in a Stealth finish.
It certainly goes without saying that the Goodwood Festival of Speed is poised to become the place-to-be for each and every person who calls himself an auto enthusiast.
