The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power will host an England vs Italy of CARS
It's pronounced ‘Chumley', and this year's annual not-the-Goodwood-Festival-of-Speed promises an England vs Italy face-off to coincide with the England vs Italy footballing world series soccer match-up.
So, we're promised 11 English cars and bikes stacked up against 11 Italian cars and bikes, all going head to head in the Mersey Tunnel near Liverpool.
No word on the cars, but the teaser above shows the Jaguar XJ220 vs the Maserati GT MC Stradale as the first pair. Should sound magnificent. It'll kick off (a footballing pun?) on the 12 June.
In the meantime, why not have a stroll through Top Gear's not-at-all-spurious England automotive World Cup XI. Ahem.
