VIDEO: McLaren and F1's Goodwood record falls to VW's all-conquering electric beast!

Volkswagen's ID.R has been snaffling several records in recent times, but breaking a benchmark that had stood for 20 years, set by a Formula 1 car is something else…

VW's concept has set a new record for an electric car around the Nurburgring's legendary Nordschleife circuit and beat the previous record for the Pikes Peak hill climb by over 15 seconds.

Goodwood's 1.15 course may not be the challenge of those routes, but it was the scene of more record-breaking from VW's EV leader.

Romain Dumas was at the controls to travel the course in 41.18 seconds at the weekend's Festival of Speed, beating Nick Heidfeld's two-decade record that had been set in a McLaren-Mercedes MP4/13, before lowering the record further to 39.90 seconds.

Check out the old record-holder and its replacement below.
