The Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne captured the attention of the public at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, one of the most important events in the world of motorsports. The Festival, created by the Duke of Richmond in 1993, celebrated its 30th anniversary, which was marked by bad weather conditions which led to the cancellation of all the activities on Saturday. Even so, close to 200,000 people were able to enjoy this exciting weekend in West Sussex.

Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne at Goodwood weekend

Former F1 driver and Hispano Suiza Driver Ambassador, Luis Pérez-Sala, drove up the legendary Goodwood Hillclimb over the course of the weekend: “Tackling the Hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed is always a thrilling experience, even more so onboard the Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne. All the hillclimbs were extremely useful from a technical perspective, since they allowed us to test our new batteries and provided us with valuable data that our technical team is now going to analyse.”

Victor Cobos, Advisory Board Member and CMO of Hispano Suiza added: “Goodwood is so much more than its legendary hillclimb. This event allowed us to introduce our new corporate identity at international level, and meet with journalists, influencers, car enthusiasts, clients and institutions. For this reason we are extremely satisfied”.
