Caparo T1 to make its debut in action
The Caparo T1 will make its first public appearance as a running car at the 15th Goodwood Festival of Speed. The T1 will be one of the star attractions at this world famous UK event, which will be held over the weekend of 22-24 June 2007. The T1 will participate in the Goodwood hill climb; a 1.16 mile course running through the parkland grounds of Goodwood House and the principal attraction at the annual Festival of Speed.
The car will make its 'debut in action' as part of the Sunday Times 'InGear' Supercar run and will be driven by Anthony Reed, the former British Touring Car Champion, who is hoping the T1 will smash the current record for the course. "The Caparo T1 not only looks and performs like a Formula One car but it also helps us to demonstrate new and advanced technology to carmakers and automotive component suppliers," says Operations Director Ben Scott-Geddes.
The T1 will be formally launched at the Goodwood circuit on June 7th. 30 of the world's top motoring journalists will be there to see both the white and red cars running the track. The car is being launched with a new and more powerful engine than previously mooted. The higher specification is reflected in a launch price of £190,000.
The T1 will be featured on the front page of Top Gear magazine over the summer. The T1 will also be exhibited at Le Mans on June 15th, as part of the Supercar Parade.
