Over 100 supercars will descend upon Goodwood Motor Circuit in Chichester on Saturday, 1st June as part of The Supercar Event 2019. The event offers once-in-a- lifetime passenger rides in some of the world’s most iconic and luxurious supercars from just £20, raising money for The Children’s Trust charity, helping children with brain injury.
Every year, 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness and many have to live with ongoing, long-term difficulties. The Children’s Trust gives children and young people with brain injury and neurodisability opportunities to live the best life possible, by providing specialist rehabilitation, education and community services across the UK.
Amongst the supercars on show will be a heavily modified Porsche 911 Turbo 996 running a turbocharged RSR engine built by Nine Excellence in Surrey and Protomotive in the United States. The engine was built using the block from a GT3 RS 4.0 coupled with an RSR crankshaft and bespoke pistons with H pattern steel rods for maximum strength. The car runs around 1000bhp with 890bhp at the wheels and remains legal for road use.
Well known personalities, such as Chris Evans, Andrea McLean, Phil Tufnell and Shane Richie have taken part previously, helping raise thousands of pounds for The Children’s Trust. British Indycar driver and former Formula 1 driver Max Chilton who has been part of the action at The Supercar Event said “the event is breathtaking. People love getting so close to the world’s most spectacular cars”.
Now on its 13th year, the event also offers a wide range of attractions and entertainment, from helicopter rides to hovercrafts.
