Following the cancellation of the 2020 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Aston Martin fans can now look forward to its 2021 iteration, which promises an array of showstopping activities from the British automaker.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is due to make its first appearance at the world-famous Festival of Speed. The crowd will be delighted to see (and hear) the Valkyrie tackle the famous Hillclimb.

Fans will get a glimpse of the Vantage F1 Edition, Formula One's Official Safety Car
Accelerating from zero to 97km/h in under 2.5 seconds, the hypercar is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine producing an earth-shattering 1,160bhp. It will be driven by Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One team driver Lance Stroll.

Fans will also get a glimpse of the all new Vantage F1 Edition, which is scheduled to make a sprint up the 1.85km course. Based on the Aston Martin Vantage, it is the Official Safety Car of Formula One.

To mark the brand's long-awaited return to Formula One and in anticipation of the British Grand Prix, which takes place a week later at Silverstone, an 'Aston Martin Moment' will take place during the Festival. Led by the Valkyrie, the marque's most iconic cars will make their way up the famous Hillclimb, including its historic racing heroes, the DBR1 and LM7.

Rounding off the procession on the Festival's final day will be none other than the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team's race car, the AMR21. It will be the only 2021 F1 car to appear at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
