Prodrive to celebrate at Goodwood

Prodrive is to display and run some of the most iconic cars from its 25 years in motorsport at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

The very first car Prodrive built in 1984, a Rothmans Porsche 911 SCRS, will run up the hill, as will its very latest, the Aston Martin LMP1. As a tribute to Britain's two World Rally Champions, Prodrive will also run a Colin McRae Subaru Impreza and a Richard Burns Impreza WRC alongside the Porsche.

The Ferrari 550 GTS Maranello, which competed at Le Mans in 2004 and was also driven by McRae, will run alongside the Gulf Oil liveried DBR9 in the GT class.

In addition, on static display will be the MG 6R4 driven by Jimmy McRae; the BMW M3 rally car, which Prodrive ran in the late 1980s; Ari Vatanen's Subaru Legacy and Alain Menu's 2000 BTCC-winning Ford Mondeo.

When not running, all the cars can be found on the Prodrive display area just behind the F1 Paddock.
