  • Easyrain at the Goodwood Festival of Speed for the future of safety

    AIS is the first and only active system that changes road conditions and makes it instantly safer. Through small injectors hidden inside the bumper, AIS sprays a controlled jet of water in front of the front wheels to eliminate excess water on the road, thus re-establishing contact between the ground and the tyre. In this way, in addition to restoring grip to the car, AIS allows the anti-lock braking systems and electronic stability control to operate where they would not have.AIS is therefore a fundamental system for all cars, both traditional and self-driving ones, which will make it possible to save lives and drastically reduce accidents in the most dangerous driving situations, such as highly wet asphalt, aquaplaning and not only that: Easyrain has begun studying an evolution of the AIS system capable of restoring grip not only in the event of loss of control on wet surfaces, but also in the event of loss of control in snow and ice conditions, improving further driving safety in other critical situations for the driver and autonomous driving systems. This project sees the collaboration of the Polytechnic of Turin.

  • The new Battista Edizione Nino Farina - tribute to a racing legend set for world dynamic debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

    Automobili Pininfarina is honouring a motorsport icon with an exclusive new limited-edition version of its award-winning electric hyper GT – the Battista Edizione Nino Farina. The design edition will make its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it will be piloted up the famous hill by former F1 star and hillclimb record holder, Nick Heidfeld. In his role as an advisor to Automobili Pininfarina, ‘Quick Nick’ has played a key role in the Battista story so far. Following the success of the limited-edition Battista Anniversario, the latest model represents the fascinating story of F1 racing legend Nino Farina, the first ever F1 World Champion and nephew of design icon Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina. Fittingly, it will make its dynamic debut just a few hundred metres from the Goodwood Circuit, where Nino drove to victory in the 1951 Goodwood Trophy (a non-championship F1 race).With just five examples to be crafted for clients worldwide, bespoke features adorning the exterior and interior of the Battista Edizione Nino Farina pay tribute to the racing legend born in Torino. Each car in the series celebrates one of five milestones in Nino Farina’s incredible racing career, ensuring each collector will own a one-of-a-kind Italian design masterpiece.

  • Renewably-fuelled Bentley Bentayga EWB sets a new trailer-blazing record at Goodwood

    Bentley’s renewably-powered showcase at Goodwood Festival of Speed was opened in dramatic fashion this morning, with the announcement of a new, albeit unofficial, hillclimb record – fastest car with a trailer. A Bentayga EWB, Bentley’s newest flagship, completed the hill climb at speed in just 1 minute 21 seconds – impressive enough, but made even more surprising by the fact it was towing 2.5 tonnes of straw in a specially-prepared Ifor Williams trailer. Not only has the run set a new Goodwood record – fastest time for a car and trailer - the unofficial run of 1 minute 21 seconds was completed on second-generation renewable fuel, made from agricultural waste straw. As part of Bentley’s ongoing trails into sustainable fuel, all modern Bentleys running on the hillclimb at the Festival of Speed over the next four days are using renewable fuel, meaning an 85 per cent reduction in carbon emissions on a well-to-wheels basis.For safety reasons, the run was completed ahead of the start of the Festival of Speed, during the build phase of the event, meaning the record time is not official.The 2.5 tonnes of straw hauled to the top of hill is enough to create 1,100 miles-worth of fuel that the Bentayga EWB and indeed all Bentleys can run on without modification. The second-generation biofuel conforms to the global EN228 standard for gasoline, meaning it’s a straightforward replacement for normal pump fuel.
