An extreme version of MINI’s 100% electric hatchback will be seen on UK tarmac for the first time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021.

The awesome MINI Electric Pacesetter has been designed and developed as the new Safety Car in the Formula E.

It will take to the infamous Goodwood Hill Climb during the racing weekend with MINI ambassador Charlie Cooper, grandson of John Cooper who inspired the John Cooper Works division of MINI, at the wheel.

MINI ambassador and rally legend Paddy Hopkirk, who famously won the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally in the classic Morris Mini Cooper S Mk1, will be available to meet the public and sign autographs on Saturday 10th July. It can also be seen in the First Glance Paddock.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed runs from Thursday 8th to Sunday 11th July 2021.
