Sebastien Loeb wins Goodwood Festival of Speed hill climb in Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak car

After breaking the Pikes Peaks Hill Climb record last year, Sebastien Loeb and Peugeot turned their attention to this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed with a simple plan to break the iconic 1.16-mile Hillclimb record.

The nine-time World Rally Champion too the top spot on Sunday with a time of 44.60 seconds, but not fast enough to break the course record, which still belongs to Nick Heidfeld, who did it 41.6 seconds in 1999, driving the McLaren MP4/13.

Loeb’s time is the sixth-fastest time ever set on Goodwood’s 1.16-mile Hillclimb and we have a feeling he will be back next year with some modifications to the car to shave off another 3 seconds.

The second spot this year went to ex-grand prix driver Michael Bartels with a Maserati MC12 ‘Goodwood Cent 100’ with just 1.22 seconds between the two.
