MG LOLA EX257 LE MANS SPORTS CAR TO WOW SPECTATORS AT 2001 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED

The MG Lola EX257 Le Mans sports car, fresh from its debut at Le Mans 2001, will wow spectators at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, held between Friday July 6 to Sunday July 8, 2001.

Kevin McGarrity, renowned for his quick laps of the Le Mans circuit during the recent 24-hour race and Anthony Reid, a Le Mans veteran, will 'demonstrate' hill runs in the MG Lola EX257 sports car.

Goodwood is the spiritual home of British motor racing and the Festival of Speed is the greatest event on the historic racing circuit. From 25,000 visitors at the inaugural event in 1993, the Festival of Speed has gone on to attract in excess of 110,000 in its eighth year.

This year's Festival of Speed is shaping up to be an exciting event. Over 225 cars are expected to 'take to the hill' and more than 25 historic cars worth over 20 million will be specially flown in from around the world for spectators to view.
