This has got to be the most blatant disregard for public safety I have ever seen. Drifting on public roads in the middle of the day is incredibly dangerous and this guy should be punched in the face. Gotta admit though, dude has got some chops.

Motor racing returned to Goodwood after 27-year hiatus in 1993. That year, Lord March tentatively hosted the first Festival of Speed. Even that first edition attracted a surprisingly large crowd of 25,000 enthusiasts and the event soon grew out to be the single largest of its kind now welcoming over 185,000 visitors. This year, the Festival of Speed will celebrate its 20th anniversary with 'the best of the first 20 years'. Other celebrations will include the 50th anniversary of McLaren, Lamborghini and the Porsche 911. In 1998, the racing program was expanded with the Revival meeting on the old circuit. This period pageant proved an equally great success. This September the career of the late Jim Clark will be marked, while the 50th anniversaries of the Ford GT40 and Ferrari 250 LM will also take centre stage.
To announce the plans for the 2013 season, Lord March invited the media to the Goodwood House this week for the official Press Day. The 141-strong entry-list was more than strong enough to carry a full event but at Goodwood it provides only a taster of what is to come. We were on hand and have captured all the action in this 150-shot gallery.

First Ever Monaco Grand Prix (1929). Great footage of the first ever Monte Carlo grand prix. Organised in 1929 by Anthony Noghes, the race sees British driver William Grover-Williams driving a Bugatti 35B taking the title. He beat the great German driver, Rudolf Caracciola.

The Monte Carlo circuit is still one of the most demanding and dangerous formula one circuits with its narrow streets, windy tunnel and tight corners around the city. The famous Monaco harbour has also played its role with a couple of drivers having crashed into the sea - the most famous being Alberto Ascari.

Release The Draguar! Building a Blown Jaguar Rat Rod. On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan do unspeakable things to a '74 Jaguar XJ12, one of about 4,700 made. Namely, they cut a giant hole in the hood and install a Weiand 6-71 supercharger and twin Holley carburetors on the 350ci Chevy V8 that was already installed in the car when it was purchased for $1,000. But things can never be easy, so the supercharger installation is staged in the parking lot of Gotelli Speed Shop in South San Francisco. Then the duo hits the road, making their way to Sacramento Raceway, where they can finally unleash "The Draguar" at the strip.

When legendary Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain put in an order for a new 550-horsepower Jaguar XKR-S – Jaguar’s highest performance production vehicle ever - Jaguar’s design team’s part time rock n’ roller, Wayne Burgess, was thrilled. He contacted McBrain and offered his services to help create the ultimate rock star’s ride, a one-off XKR-S. On Friday, November 9, Nicko, a resident of Florida, took delivery of a bespoke Jaguar XKR-S. Nicko explains what went into his dream machine.

How Did the Project Come About?

Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved Jags with a passion. I remember my father taking me to see the big ol’ Mark 10 when it came out in 1961. That was his favorite car, and since then, I’ve always preferred Jaguar sedans rather than sports cars. In fact, I still have my Series III that I bought in 1986 along with my ’89 Series III that I keep in Florida and use as my daily driver. I bought my wife an XK in 2009, and when she finally let me drive it, I absolutely loved it; so when the XKR-S came out, that was it, I decided I had to have one.

When Did You First Get to Drive the XKR-S?

Jaguar invited me to the Gaydon test track in the UK to do a few laps, and really, that’s how my car came about. They drove me to the track in a new Range Rover Evoque with a terrific black and red leather interior. When we pulled up alongside this French Racing Blue XKR-S, the door was open. When I opened my door to the Range Rover Evoque, I said, “This is the interior I want in my car.”

How Did You Go About Personalizing Your Dream Interior?

The Jaguar team initially thought I was doing the rock star bit of demanding the complete Range Rover Evoque interior installed into an XKR-S. Really, I just wanted the red and black color scheme since the original Iron Maiden name was red on a black background. Then the team said, “If we do that, why don’t we Maiden-ize the whole car?” I went over and saw my mate Wayne Burgess and his team in the Jaguar design department at Whitley and the brainstorming started there. Jaguar has an in-house team, the Engineered To Order (ETO) Division, that was interested in helping us out.

ETO is responsible for extending the Jaguar and Land Rover brands with a series of Special Edition models, such as the Jaguar XJL Ultimate, as well as a range of options allowing owners to more uniquely tailor their cars. My car is truly one of a kind and I had a lot of fun working with the team to make this dream car a reality.


What Features Did You Decide On?

The first major feature we worked on was the paint; I chose a new metallic version of French Racing Blue. Jaguar calls it Ultra Blue and it’s not currently available on the market, but they agreed to let me use it for my car. I live in Florida and when the sun hits the paint, it just explodes; the color is truly amazing.

Next, we wanted to really customize the car so where it says Supercharged on the carbon fiber hood louvers, we’ve used the famous Iron Maiden Metal Lord font. We used the same script for the door tread plates, which now read Nicko McBrain XKR-S. In the piano black veneer above the glove box we’ve added Made In Aluminum, get it?

Tell Us About the Unique Growler on Your XKR-S.

Eddie is the band’s mascot and if you squint your eyes, he looks a lot like a Jaguar growler. So, we created a hybrid version that the team hand-stitched into the seat head restraints. We’ve also used it for the big badge on the front grille and for the wheel centers.

How did the Finished Product Turn Out?

The car is simply a piece of art. It truly is the reality of the dream I had when I first saw the XKR-S, but I had no idea that I could make it my own. Jaguar accomplished it and I know it’s hard to believe, but this is the first NEW car I’ve ever bought; and let me tell you, it was sure worth the wait!

I only picked up my car last week at my local dealer, Jaguar Alpine, who do a great job here in Florida, but I’ve already put a few ripping miles on it. My mate at the dealership told me to keep the miles down, as eventually it’ll be worth a fortune. I told him, “Hold on a minute, I just paid a fortune for it,” and I don’t plan on giving it up anytime soon!
