At the 25th anniversary of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Indian Wrecking Crew and the Scout FTR750 provided a taste of AMA Pro Flat Track racing.
The dominating Grand National Champion, Jared Mees, joined fellow Wrecking Crew rider Brad Baker and FTR750 privateer Chad Cose, engaging the automotive legends from every corner of motorsport with their FTR750s.
The Wrecking Crew’s first visit to the Goodwood festival was part of the Festival’s Silver Jubilee celebrations, which made an impact on the big event.
“We were thrilled to be part of American Flat Track’s first visit to Goodwood this year, putting Indian Motorcycle in front of thousands of petrolheads in the paddock and on the famous hill. As well as showcasing this exciting sport, we were delighted to speak with so many passionate Flat Track followers. Goodwood is a truly special event, fitting the heritage of Indian Motorcycle perfectly. We look forward to returning in the future.”- said, Grant Bester, Indian Motorcycle EMEA President.
The Indian crew flew their flag high in front of Goodwood House, despite sharing the hill with some of motorsports biggest and best icons. The Indian crew proved itself to be a hit by demonstrating the performance of the FTR750.
The team is named after the famed Wrecking Crew flat track team of the 1940s and 1950s. Jared Mees is currently leading the 2018 season as point leader by making 9 wins from 11 rounds. The team dominated the 2017 season, the first factory racing effort since 1953.
On 5th August 2018, the Indian Wrecking Crew will continue the season abroad by racing in Buffalo Chip TT, presented by the Indian Motorcycle, at Sturgis.
