Jaguar F-Pace thrills at Goodwood
The Jaguar F-PACE put on another dramatic display of precision and control at Goodwood recently. After setting the Guinness World Record for the world’s biggest loop-the-loop at its launch last year, the very same record-breaking F-PACE and stunt driver Terry Grant have teamed up again for a thrilling drive at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
This time Grant piloted the F-Pace up the famous Goodwood hill on two wheels with professional freestyle motorbike stunt rider Lee Bowers on board to add even more jeopardy to proceedings.
As the F-Pace two-wheeled up the course, Bowers climbed out of the passenger window to stand on the side of the Jaguar and salute the crowd, before climbing back inside ahead of the finishing line.
Even for an expert of Grant’s calibre, the two-wheeled drive required hours of planning. Final preparations were completed at Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire just days ahead of the live event.
For the actual drive, spectators were left in no doubt about the identity of the Jaguar as #FPACE was emblazoned on both the roof and underside of the vehicle.
Jaguar’s first ever SUV has become the manufacturer’s fastest-selling vehicle. In the first 10 months on sale more than 14,000 orders have been placed, with all 2,000 First Edition vehicles sold out.
The Jaguar F-PACE is Jaguar’s first performance crossover and its lightweight body structure comprises 80 per cent aluminium. It is the only aluminium-intensive design in its sector and is manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull Plant in the UK.
