McLaren Celebrating 60 Years at Goodwood Festival of Speed

At the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed, taking place from 13th to 16th July, McLaren commemorates its 60th anniversary with dynamic debuts of the 750S and Solus GT. The event honors founder Bruce McLaren’s vision and showcases the iconic ‘Triple Crown’ winning cars. The 750S boasts impressive power and lightweight elements, while the Solus GT, a limited edition track-only model, exemplifies extreme performance. The festival also features the Artura and past McLaren models participating in the hillclimb.
Spectators can witness historic McLaren racing cars and McLaren Customer Racing models in action during the event. The Artura, McLaren’s first V6 hybrid supercar, will take part in hillclimb action alongside McLaren’s first hybrid, the P1™ hypercar, marking its tenth anniversary in 2023. Ultimate Series models including the McLaren Senna and Elva will power up the hill, as well as 12C Job #1 – the very first production 12C.
On each of the four days of the festival, a ‘McLaren Moment’ will showcase some of McLaren’s greatest racing machines in a moving motor show on the Hillclimb. At points over the weekend the fantastic collection of racing cars and drivers taking part will include Mika Häkkinen returning to the wheel of the MP4/14 in which he won the 1999 Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship; Bruno Senna driving his uncle Ayrton Senna’s 1991 Formula 1 World Championship-winning MP4/6; and McLaren’s Le Mans 24 Hour race winner JJ Lehto in Lewis Hamilton’s 2008 MP4/23 F1 Championship winner.
Spectators will also see cars developed by McLaren Customer Racing, including the 12C GT3, the 650S GT3, the 570S GT4, 720S GT3 X (which won the 2021 timed shootout in the hands of Rob Bell) and GT3 Evo, as well the new Artura Trophy race car.

This year is the 60th anniversary of McLaren being founded, and the Goodwood Festival of Speed is the ideal event to celebrate six decades of thrilling performance. Alongside iconic cars from our past, we will be showcasing our current model range which together with two global dynamic debuts further strengthens the foundations for a new Future of Performance for McLaren
