WD-40® Rally Team at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is sadly over for another year, after four days of awesome action.

The event celebrated its 25th anniversary, since it’s first one-day meet in 1993; making it even more spectacular than usual (which is pretty tough)!

The Duke of Richmond’s grounds in West Sussex saw hundreds of incredible cars (the odd bike) and 185,000 car enthusiasts to celebrate automotive greatness. Speaking of greatness, our Championship winning WD-40 Rally Team attended the Rally stage and completed a number of rounds of the famous Goodwood circuit.

Apart from attending the event, we also gave our fans the opportunity to win a money can’t buy passenger experience in the WD-40 Rally car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, via our Facebook page.

4 lucky car fans were not only given access to the sold out event, but they also got the chance to get inside the WD-40 Rally Team car and be driven around the famous Goodwood rally circuit, with The Sun’s Rob Gill. What a prize, huh?!

It’s fair to say the WD-40 Facebook competitions winners had an amazing day at Goodwood!

Here’s what some of our winners had to say:

“I absolutely loved the whole day. The Rally experience was amazing! Rob was so friendly, he really put me at ease and he drives like the devil is chasing him! Goodwood is huge! The perfect day out for a petrol head. Thank you again for the opportunity to go and be involved. My boyfriend was so jealous that I actually got to be in a timed event!”

“Was a little shocked to discover I had won a chance to passenger in a rally stage at The Festival of Speed, pretty much one of those bucket list things. How can I explain the actual experience? Totally mental! Rob Gill explained a lot about the technical aspects of the car, then I was propelled forward like a cannonball! For about 2 and a half minutes my life was a blur of trees, grass banks and dust! Even having served in the Army and as an Ambulance Technician, this was one of my top three experiences in my life, this experience was beyond a doubt, mentally amazing!”
