There’s a real treat in store for any rally fans at this years Goodwood Festival of Speed. John Haugland, who took Škodas to a record number of high-profile rally victories in the ‘60s and ‘70’s, will be back behind the wheel of a vintage, fully restored Škoda 130RS rally car.
The Norwegian ace will be running his own RS in the event on Saturday 23 June, and he will doubtless be putting a few younger drivers in newer cars to shame. After all, he was a Škoda works driver nearly 20 years and had over 100 class wins during his impressive career.
Haugland is delighted to be appearing at Goodwood in his stunning 130RS: “The Festival of Speed is one of my favourite events and it’s fantastic to be there in my Škoda, which was such a competitive car in its heyday.”
The Goodwood Festival of Speed will take place on the 22 - 24 June at Goodwood House, Goodwood, Chichester, West Sussex. For full details visit www.goodwood.co.uk/fos. If you’d like further information on John Haugland’s racing successes in a Škoda 130RS visit www.hauglandmotorsport.com.
