Charley Boorman marks Long Way Round at Goodwood

Adventurer Charley Boorman will be reunited with his famous BMW R1150GS Adventure from the Long Way Round TV series at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed on 26-29 June. Charley is celebrating ten years since the iconic round-the-world trip by taking part in the 1.16-mile Goodwood hillclimb.

Also taking part is BMW Motorrad UK’s stunt rider Mattie Griffin, who will once again be thrilling the crowds as he performs stunts up and down Lord March’s famous drive on his customised BMW F 800 R. Mattie is one of the best freestyle stunt riders in the world and has been a favourite of the Festival of Speed crowds for a number of years.

Both Charley and Mattie will also be taking part in the regular Q&A and autograph sessions at the BMW Pavilion, which will also be home to a display of motorcycles including the BMW R NineT retro roadster, the S1000R performance naked bike and the cutting-edge HP4 supersports bike.
