julynewsjesseFirst seen at the Festival of Speed in 2009, American cult TV star Jesse G James is back in the UK this year with his Baja desert racing truck. This ‘larger than life’ television personality will be back at the Festival again, where he will apparently be ‘hooning around throughout the spectacular Goodwood Park landscape’. James is famous for his US TV shows, including Monster Garage and Motorcycle Mania in which he rampages across deserts and through houses. There is also the show called Jesse James is a dead man (!) where he achieved a world record speed of 199.7mph driving across El Mirage dry lake in a hydrogen-powered vehicle. The sedate English surroundings of Goodwood Park will be something of a contrast. If you want to see some of his exploits, they can be found on You Tube, or go along to the Festival of Speed (29 June – 1 July) to see him in real life action.
