Romain Dumas destroys Goodwood record in the Volkswagen ID.R

Way back in 1999, Nick Heidfeld drove the wheels of a McLaren MP4/13. He was racing along the Goodwood Hill Climb course during the Festival of Speed. Heidfeld set an amazing time of 41.60 seconds. That time stood tall as the fastest run… until 2019, when it’s been unseated by an electric race car.

The Volkswagen ID.R, which has already done amazing things at the Nürburgring and Pikes Peak, has a new notch in its title belt. Romain Dumas has once again done a bit of wizardry from behind the wheel. The new fastest time is now 39.90.
