Article by Anita Panait, on June 28, 2013

VŪHL Automotive will have rookie Formula One driver Esteban Gutiérrez on its driver lineup when it takes part in the much awaited Goodwood Festival of Speed slated on July 11-14, 2013. Gutiérrez, a 21-year old driver from Mexico, will particularly play a special role in the global debut of the VŪHL 05 trackday supercar at the festival. During the event, an example of the VŪHL 05 will be exhibited on Stand 12, while another example will carry out demonstration runs on the course every day as a member of the ‘First Glance’ class.

The VŪHL team has assigned Gutiérrez to conduct two demonstration runs on Sunday, July 14, 2013. The VŪHL 05 will also be making regular visits to the Michelin ‘Supercar’ stage. Just like Gutiérrez, the VŪHL 05 is also of Mexican origin, making the rookie Formula One driver especially suitable to display its prowess to the public.

Duncan Tappy, former Renault UK and Formula Ford Festival Champion, will perform the demonstration runs on Friday, July 12, and Saturday, July 13. Iker Echeverria of VŪHL Automotive remarked that they looking forward to unveiling the VŪHL 05 at Goodwood. [source: VŪHL Automotive]
