Kris all set for Goodwood

Kris will be entertaining the crowds at this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, driving his DS 3 WRC up the famous hillclimb and through the purpose-built rally stage.

The Rally Argentina winner will be present on Saturday and Sunday, the two busiest days of the Festival. He’ll also be signing autographs at the Citroen stand between his runs – his first chance to meet his home fans since becoming the first British driver for more than a decade to win a round of the WRC.

Kris said, ‘It’s the first time I’ve been to Goodwood since 2011 in the Mini. I’ve been several times over the years, though, and it’s always an incredible event. I’m really looking forward to it.

‘There’s always a great atmosphere at Goodwood, and the weather’s usually pretty decent. What I like is not just the chance to drive the DS 3 on the hillclimb and the gravel stage, but also the opportunity to see all the other forms of motorsport going right back through the years. You see all those faces of drivers that you remember watching when you were a kid – but they’re there, right in front of you and driving the original cars as well, and you can get right up close to see them.’
