BAC to attend Goodwood Festival of Speed with latest BAC Mono
Since the launch of the BAC Mono in 2011, BAC have attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed every year, and will be set to make a return in 2016 with the latest version of the single-seater Mono supercar and a brand new stand on show.
BAC launched the 2016 model year of the Mono at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, and the car set an unofficial record up the Goodwood hill climb. BAC will aim to give spectators an even better show this year as it competes in a brand new class at the Festival. The ‘Race Cars For The Road’ class is new for 2016, and will see the Mono running against other track-optimised but road-legal cars. As well as being on display in the supercar paddock throughout the weekend, the entrants to the ‘Race Cars For The Road’ will head up the hill on several occasions with Oliver Webb, BAC’s official development and test driver, holding the responsibility of the drives. He will be aiming to improve on the car’s impressive showing last year when it made it up the hill in 47.9 seconds. The new class means that there is the opportunity to go for an official time this year.
“Driving the BAC Mono up the famous Goodwood hill climb in front of so many festival goers was a brilliant experience in 2015, and it will be fascinating to see just how quick the latest version of the Mono can go this time around.” – Oliver Webb.
