Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015: Full 2-wheeled entry list

Author: Oli Rushby Posted: 22 Jun 2015

McGuinness will be there with his #1 Fireblade

A combined 85 motorcycle racing world championships will be heading up Goodwood Hill next weekend with an impressive line-up of two-wheeled action spanning nine decades at this year’s Festival of Speed.

Headlining the motorcycle category is undoubtedly the attendance of nine-times Grand Prix World Champion Valentino Rossi, who will fly in to the Earl of March’s estate after competing at the 2015 Dutch TT in Assen.

Also appearing will be Rossi’s former rival and double MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner as he takes to the iconic hill climb circuit aboard Honda’s RC213V Grand Prix bike.

Valentino Rossi will be making an appearance

23 times Isle of Man TT winner John McGuinness will head up the hill on the CBR1000RR Fireblade he took to victory in this year’s Senior TT before also taking a quick spin on Honda’s road-legal MotoGP bike as the RC213V-S makes its UK debut.

Joining Rossi on the flight in from Assen, Scott Redding will also take Honda’s £150,000 street prototype up the hill.

15-times World Champion Giacomo Agostini will again take to the Hill aboard his 1969 MV Agusta 500 and MV’s latest 1000cc offering – the F4 RC alongside World Superbike star Leon Camier.

No Potski on the Norton this weekend, he's been replaced by Phil Read

Superbike TT winner Bruce Anstey will also take a spin up the hill on his Padgetts CBR1000RR Fireblade. 

There'll be plenty more on display, including a fine array of Grand Prix bikes from across the decades and a number of specials and classics too. 

The action gets underway on Friday this week with the Festival running through until Sunday. Bad news if you haven’t got tickets though, Saturday & Sunday are a complete sell out! If you can’t make it, not to worry – we’ll be there bringing you all the latest coverage via our Twitter and Facebook pages.
