The first two days of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, an event that brings together the most iconic cars and motorbikes in motorsport history in the south of England, welcomed tens of thousands of fans from all over the world. With a very welcome surprise: the presence of MotoGP in the Main Paddock, with Aprilia and its RS-GP definitely at home among the legends of two- and four-wheel motorsport.
The Italian V4 was driven along the legendary uphill track on Thursday and Friday by tester and MotoGP rider Lorenzo Savadori, who sent the crowd into raptures by also performing a spectacular burnout.
Incredible then was the turnout at the Aprilia box recreated in the English paddock, testifying to an extremely curious and knowledgeable public.
Activities were unfortunately suspended for Saturday due to the bad weather conditions, but resumed on Sunday with Raúl Fernandez riding the Aprilia RS-GP.
