"It is an enormous achievement for a race auto to complete the very first run of the hill using only artificial intelligence", said Charles Gordon-Lennox, the Duke of Richmond and Founder of the Festival of Speed. The vehicle has benn modified specifically for the event, rather than to be used on the open road. From purpose-built drift cars to multi-million dollar classics, nearly every kind of vehicle has ran up the hill. The powertrain 289ci. (4.7-litre), Suspension and steering still remains stock. The Festival of Speed properly begins today with the timed hill climbs. Also with the help of Bentley Systems was created three-dimensional map of the track, which will allow the most precise positioning of the machine during the race.

Can't make it to the Festival's 25th anniversary?

The vehicle - designed by Daniel Simon, an automotive futurist who's worked on hit sci-fi movies like Tron: Legacy and Oblivion - will also try to repeat the same thing on Saturday and Sunday.

McLaren Automotive to grow dealer network and launch 18 cars by 2025
The 18 new cars will be entirely new models and derivatives, although McLaren didn't specify exact numbers for each. The new McLaren hybrids won't just augment gasoline power with electricity, though.

They've only gone and done it. "The Mustang raises those sorts of questions". But, let's just say doing it in a '65 Mustang looks a lot more cooler. Canfield University's Brighton will be inside during the run but will only take control of the wheel if something goes wrong.

Clearly the question comes up, why would you want a self driving classic as they are built to be driven. This year, an autonomous race auto is driving itself around the 1.16 mile track, while visitors to Goodwood also get to sit in the virtual passenger seat for an immersive ride along.

The emotional experience of sprinting up the famous Hillclimb will then be displayed in real-time via large on-screen infographics at the FoS Future Lab, which is returning for a second year and is focusing on space exploration, autonomous transport, robotics and personal flight.

Utilising autonomous technology, developed in collaboration with Cranfield University, the autonomous hillclimb will be attempted on Thursday 12th July, before being repeated every day until the end of the festival.
