The XJ12C Broadspeed recently restored by ourselves was invited to be displayed and take part in runs up the hill at the Goodwood festival of Speed. With owner Chris away at Spa, Mike was given the opportunity by him to drive the car up the hill and display it in his absence.
An early start on Sunday morning saw qualifying at 9 O’clock and with five minutes to go before the start rain began to fall in certain areas of the track. Chris was first out and gradually built up a good pace before handing over to John Bussell. After two quick laps of 2.57 his final flying lap was a 2min 54.9 in damp conditions, putting us 3rd out of 65 cars.
