Visit Florida Racing Returns to Goodwood Festival of Speed

24.06.2016: Visit Florida Racing will return to England this weekend as the team

Visit Florida Racing will return to England this weekend as the team once again participates in the Goodwood Festival of Speed.


The annual event, which is staged at Lord March’s estate in southeast England, is a celebration of all things automotive and attracts some of the most compelling machinery on earth.


The event is also a significant marketing opportunity for Visit Florida, which will have a large display on hand to promote Florida’s global excellence in equestrian events, golfing, and of course motorsports.


The race team has also brought the No. 90 Visit Florida Corvette Daytona Prototype to the event, and Marc Goossens will be behind the wheel for the traditional run up the hill that is the competition focal point for the event. (Fans can watch here: https://www.goodwood.com/flagship-events/festival-of-speed/)


The visit to Goodwood is the second for Visit Florida Racing, which represented IMSA in its 2013 “run up the hill” with a Daytona Prototype.


The team arrives at Goodwood fresh from a trip to Le Mans, where Team Owner Troy Flis conducted several meetings ahead of finalizing the team's 2017 plans, while members of the Visit Florida Racing marketing department were on hand to consider options and plans for a possible presence in the event in 2017.


“I look forward to driving at Goodwood again and to represent Visit Florida during this great event,” said Goossens, who recently took his first podium in Euro NASCAR competition.


 “This is only my second time to drive up the hill (drove a Jaguar XK120 previously). This year will be awesome as we are taking the Corvette DP to the UK and we will give some passenger rides to our Visit Florida guests.”
