Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Oracle Red Bull Racing have announced that they will be introduce the RB17 Hypercar at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed that will take place from 11-14 of July.

Red Bull's Hypercar, the RB17 will make its debut at this year's Goodwood Festival. The car has been designed by Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey and his team with the aim of creating a car that showcases Formula One levels of performance combined with indulgent luxury.

The RB17 will be revealed on Friday 12th July in the Cathedral Paddock and will be on display for the duration of the festival weekend, giving Goodwood visitors the first chance to view the Hypercar. Designed, developed, and manufactured entirely in-house, the RB17 will feature a two-seat carbon fibre monocoque chassis with a semi-stressed mid mounted V10 engine and a carbon fibre gearbox driving the rear wheels.

Red Bull's Hypercar will reach top speeds of more than 350 kph, and only 50 RB17s will be produced.

Red Bull will use the debut of its Hypercar to stage a big festival as it celebrates its 20-year presence in Formula One. The team stated that "the Cathedral Paddock will play host to a plethora of Red Bull activity including an unprecedented display of race cars from almost every year of the Team’s history, in an impressive line-up. Several of the race cars will take on the iconic Goodwood hill climb and run together in a show-stopping moment for the festival that will feature an exciting selection of decorated drivers.

"The unique event is the next touchpoint for fans in the Team’s season-long Forever Rebl campaign, designed to bring fans closer to the Team and its 20-year history, highlighting the role that Red Bull culture has played in the development of a Team that has continued to push the boundaries of motorsport since its F1 debut at the 2005 Australian GP."

Expanding on the debut of the RB17, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner: "We are excited to debut the RB17 to the public for the first time and couldn’t think of a better world stage than Goodwood Festival of Speed. The RB17 exudes rarity and engineering excellence.

"We’ve channelled everything we know about racing into making the ultimate performance car and can’t wait for the public to see the result. I’m also just as thrilled to be bringing such a remarkable selection of cars and drivers to the iconic festival and look forward to celebrating our 20th season in front of such passionate motorsport fans.”

Speaking of the announcement, Duke of Richmond, founder of the Festival of Speed, said: “I am delighted that Oracle Red Bull Racing will be joining us at the Festival of Speed this summer to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

"In such a poignant year for the Formula 1 team, I am honoured they have chosen the Festival of Speed as the venue to unveil the much-anticipated RB17 for its global public debut, and I know our fans will be hugely excited for the team to bring a multitude of their championship-winning cars and drivers to the event this year.”
