Rally legend to appear at festival

Car racing legend Sebastien Loeb will make his Goodwood debut at this year's Festival of Speed in his Citroen C4 WRC.

The five-time World Rally champion will tackle the event's famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hill and purpose-built Forest Rally Stage during the three-day motorsport spectacle between July 3 and 5.

The Frenchman's C4 WRC will be on show in the World Rally Championship paddock, near the main Formula One paddock area at the festival.

As an extra treat for rally fans, a rare ex-works Group B Citroen BX 4TC rally car will also be in action on the rally stage, where Loeb, the most successful rally driver in history, will be joined by a host of rally legends from the past and present such as Walter Rohl, Stig Blomqvist, Hannu Mikkola, Bjorn Waldegaard and Rauno Aaltonen.
