Elfyn’s speedy Goodwood detour
Ahead of the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, our man Elfyn Evans finds himself stuck in a traffic jam and running late for the start of his rally stage start.
Hampered by slow moving traffic en route to the Festival, Red Bull’s latest mega video shows Elfyn jumping into his Ford Fiesta WRC rally car and fire up the four-cylinder, 1.6-litre, turbo direct injection engine to zip around the rural roads.
His co-driver Dan Barritt grabs a map and together they career through the countryside navigating a dynamic off-road sequence. But do they make their 11am slot in time?
“Working on this project with Red Bull was a lot of fun,” said Elfyn. “The Goodwood Festival of Speed is always a special event, so being able to be a part that of the weekend, as well as bringing something to the party, is really exciting.
“Goodwood is such a stunning location for a car show. Hopefully everyone will be able to appreciate the surrounding countryside as well as understand the sheer scale of the operation to put something like the Festival of Speed on. I can’t wait for the weekend and talk about what people think about the edit.”
