Lancia LC2 Wows Goodwood Crowds

Monday 2nd July 2012

The Goodwood Festival of Speed has long been a popular fixture in the motorsport calendar, and with the advent of the Moving Motorshow – an opportunity for car makers to let the public drive their products up the famous hill – recent years have seen old and new metal become happy bedfellows.

This 20th running of the Festival saw historically significant machines rub shoulders with the latest new cars. Motorsport legends such as Derek Bell, Alain Prost and Jochen Mass shared a stage with the new guard such as Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.

Goodwood also played host to the 30th anniversary of Group C sportscars, which saw an impressive roll call of vehicles from Mercedes, Porsche, Nissan, Toyota, Lancia and not forgetting Jaguar. Generating such a cacophony of sound, if you closed your eyes you could've been at Le Mans.

DK Engineering were represented by James Cottingham who was entrusted with the Lancia LC2 which DK sold to the entrant earlier this year. The car which since then has already achieved a race win at Brands Hatch and a second place at Le Mans, was certainly one of the most iconic and striking cars in the paddock.

A few weeks previously Roger Wills had secured a second place finish in the LC2 in the hour long Group C Le Mans support race.
