The first 20 years has seen numerous MARTINI Racing-liveried racing cars and ex-works superstar drivers compete on the Goodwood hill. For 2013, however, a record number of cars adorned with the distinctive red and blue striped livery of MARTINI Racing will be gathered together for the very first time.

At least 14 legendary machines will represent 45 years of MARTINI Racing history at the Festival of Speed – nine of which will be grouped together in their own paddock area – the MARTINI Terazza – located near the popular Formula 1 paddocks. Bringing a touch of playful living ‘Italian style’, the MARTINI Terazza® will be serving the world-famous liquid which gave its name to the racing team, flanked by mouth-watering liveried Porsche and Lancias.
