Get set for Goodwood this weekend

Published: 28 June 2012

It's the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend! The historic Sussex venue will be alive to the sounds and smells of two-stroke, and home to some of the most popular and successful racers of all time, with the likes of Kenny Roberts and Wayne Gardner headlining the festival.

Goodwood is celebrating two-stroke racers with an incredible line-up of bikes from the ‘smoking engine era’ of motorcycle racing, ranging from the early DKW 350SS Kompressor, via the Moto Villa V4, Harley Davidson 350RR and ex-Freddie Spencer Honda NS500, right through to the late-1990s two-stroke Grand Prix machines which will scream and howl up the 1.16-mile Festival hillclimb.

Non two-stroke classic racing motorcycles will also be out in force at Goodwood, including the first ever Triton, Sammy Miller’s Moto Guzzi 500 V8, and a six-cylinder MV 500.

Motorcycling heroes will include top riders such Kenny Roberts, Wayne Gardner, Cal Crutchlow, Aaron Slight, Henk van Kessel, Neil Hodgson, James Ellison, Steve Parrish, Guy Martin, Stuart Graham, Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne, Stuart Easton, and Sammy Miller, among many others.

Joining them from the exciting world of sidecar racing will be the winner of a staggering 10 world titles, Steve Webster, partnered by three-time World Champion Paul Woodhead
