Note to Self: Buy a Lottery Ticket!

I think that it is pretty safe to say that any red blooded petrol head would want a Ford GT, these are iconic and very desirable cars.

Hopefully they drive as good as they look and don’t have any silly niggles that take away from the car.

One of these for a test run the North Coast 500 would be the very thing, I wonder would Ford lend me one?

But knowing my luck, if I was to get anything from Ford it would probably be a Fiesta.

The Ford GT road car is to make its Hillclimb debut in the hands of Ford Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Andy Priaulx and Harry Tincknell at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Ford Mustang GT4 race car will be piloted by Ford Chip Ganassi Racing driver Billy Johnson; Vaughn Gittin Jr returns with Mustang RTR to compete in a new drift category

All-new Ford Fiesta makes UK debut at Goodwood alongside sporty new Ford S-MAX ST‑Line model shown for the first time

The road-going version of the Ford GT will make its first dynamic appearance in the UK later this month, in the hands of Ford Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Andy Priaulx and Harry Tincknell, at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. 

Priaulx and Tincknell will be joined on the Hill by their team mate, Billy Johnson, swapping his usual seat in the Ford GT race car for the fearsome Ford Mustang GT4, a track-ready race car unveiled at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, to tackle the challenging 1.16-mile Hillclimb course. 

Drift star Vaughn Gittin Jr also returns to Goodwood this year in his Mustang RTR to compete in the Festival’s first-ever Hillclimb Drift Championship. 

In addition to the track action, visitors to the Ford stand at Goodwood will discover models including the all-new Ford Fiesta making its UK debut.

Also on show will be the Ford ST-Line range of Ford Performance-inspired models, including the Fiesta ST-Line, Focus ST-Line, Kuga ST-Line, Mondeo ST-Line, Edge ST-Line and a new S-MAX ST-Line on show for the first time. 

Activities at Goodwood House, West Sussex, begin on Thursday, June 29 with the Moving Motor Show, followed by the Festival of Speed from Friday, June 30, to Sunday, July 2.
