All-New Range Rover Sport Takes On Mighty Spitfire In A Unique Duel Of British Legends At Goodwood
The All-New Range Rover Sport and the legendary Supermarine Spitfire have engaged in a unique duel to measure their off-road mastery.
The Range Rover Sport, the fastest production Land Rover to date, representing the latest advances in all-terrain performance has been pitted against Britain’s most famous fighter aircraft in a high-speed off-road race along the grass airstrip at the Goodwood Aerodrome in Sussex. Land Rover was invited to take part in the challenge, formulated by Goodwood’s FortyOneSix.com website.
The race – the first of its kind at the airfield – involved a straight drag run down and back on the runway, punctuated by a nimble U-turn.
Mike Cross, Jaguar Land Rover’s Chief Vehicle Integrity Engineer said, “The team couldn’t resist the challenge laid down by FortyOneSix.com and to race such a British icon.”
