F1’s George Russel to make a surprise appearance at Goodwood Festival of Speed


Share post:

Thousands of fans flocking to West Sussex this year will be expecting plenty of drama. And, the festival is well prepared to deliver. Among hundreds of supercars and electric vehicles, the spectators will also be treated to shows put on by F1 cars.

F1’s George Russell is set to grace Goodwood with his presence this weekend.

The Mercedes driver will take part in the famous hill climb driving the 2019 Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power+.

And, the double World Championship-winning car is set to raise some eyebrows.

F1 cars will take to the hill on Sunday at 12.20pm and 14.30pm.

Looks-wise, it has a fairly conventional face and a streamlined rear end.

It has been previously described as a more refined version of any urban mobility solutions drivers have seen so far.

Kevin Pavlov, CEO of ElectraMeccanica, said: “The way we know travel today is outdated.

“Everything, from infrastructure to fuelling, parking and delivery, was built for and around the car instead of people.

“As our needs, lifestyles and behaviours change, so too must the way we get around.

“At ElectraMeccanica, we’re embracing and building for that long-awaited change – and modernising mobility for what it needs to be today.

“I’m immensely looking forward to seeing the UK’s reaction to SOLO first-hand at Goodwood.”

The car was produced in Vancouver, Canada.

It is coming to Goodwood from the other side of the world and gives spectators a glimpse of the future of urban motoring.
