Goodwood Festival of Speed Music Car Line-up Released

The special display will support the “Cars, Stars and Guitars” musical moments, with top car-loving guitarists scheduled to perform live at the Festival, with the list including including Jeff Beck, ZZ Top founder Billy Gibbons and leading American blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughn.
