One of the stars of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed – the 25th anniversary event which starts today - is sure to be the public debut of Triumph’s eagerly awaited Moto2 prototype, which is to be ridden by four-times world superbike champion Carl Fogarty.

Foggy will be sharing the riding duties with two times TT winner Gary Johnson and the pair will also be seen aboard a pair of classic racing Triumphs, including the 1970 Bol d’Or-winning works triple and a 1971 ex-Mike Hailwood/Ray Pickrell works 750 Trident.

A host of TT stars including John McGuinness aboard the Norton SG7, GP500 icons including ‘Fast’ Freddie Spencer and Randy Mamola, plus a variety of other biking heroes from WSB, American Flat Track and more, are among the motorcycling highlights at this weekend’s festival (12-15 July).

Italian electric motorcycle manufacturer Volt will be making its first appearance in the UK at the Festival of Speed, too, to showcase its innovative new Lacama machine.
