Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015 with Peugeot

On a cloudy Sunday I made my way from London to Chichester as a guest of Peugeot to Goodwood’s Festival of Speed.  Not having experiences the yearly event myself, but knowing about it I was super excited to see all the new cars on offer.  On arrival we walked past the very impressive Goodwood House and the beautiful sculpture outside it.

The 308 GTi really stood out for me, and of course it was in my favourite colour RED!  Peugeot 308 GTi Callum Watt Maketh The Man

The brand team told us that the new saloon car had one of the biggest boats at the event. So to test it my travelling friend Seb got into the car and could pretty much lie down inside it. A impressive boot!  Next year we joked we would come back and try it in every other stands boots as part of our new campaign for them #BootChallenge.
