Twenty-year-old Chloe Hewitt made her long-awaited return to racing at last weekend’s Mini festival after sitting out for over nine months due to lack of funds. A relatively late deal saw her family run Mini return to the S class of the Mini Challenge racing on both days of the festival.
The Electric powered Volkswagen ID.R has broken the outright Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb record, 20 years after it was set by ex-F1 star Nick Heidfeld in a McLaren MP4/13. Twice, as the new record was then broken once more the next day.
With the theme of this year’s Festival of Speed being “Speed Kings -Motorsport’s record breakers and this year also being Michael Schumacher’s fiftieth birthday and also 25 years since his first world title, it seemed like the perfect year for the festival to pay tribute to the record-breaking formula one driver.
