Goodwood Festival of Speed Celebrated 70 Yrs of Ferrari
Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) celebrated its 70th Anni at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed with 70 road and race cars thrilling crowds with a special parade up the famed hill climb circuit, then coming together on the Lawn of Goodwood House.
The parade was led by a factory replica of the Y 1947 Ferrari 125S, and Maranello’s latest model, the limited edition LaFerrari Aperta.
Multiple championship-winning single seaters and racers from The Scuderia racing history joined the lead cars to create a display at the heart of the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed, held on 29 June to 2 July at Goodwood House and the 9-turn, 1.16-mile Goodwood hill climb in West Sussex, England.
These Ferraris were driven by motorsport legends Derek Bell, Jackie Stewart and Dario Franchitti, among others.
Five GT drivers plus development driver Marc Gené, was also there to represent Maranello.
Davide Rigon, who recently competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 1000 Km of Paul Ricard, where he finished 2nd with the 488 GT3 of SMP Racing, was at the wheel of the F2007 that won the F1 world title with Kimi Raikkonen.
He was joined by Marc Gené in an F60, and Olivier Beretta, was in command of an F1-90, the car in which Alain Prost at the Paul Ricard sealed Ferrari’s 100th F1 Victory.
British Ferrari GT racing drivers Sam Bird and James Calado were in action with an FXX and an FXX K, putting on a display at the wheel of the mighty cars of the XX Programs.
They were joined by an “old glory” of Scuderia Ferrari, René Arnoux, who drove the 599XX, a car he has previously driven at many Corse Clienti events.
Alessandro Pier Guidi completed the Ferrari show at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, performing at the wheel of the 488 GTE no. 51 of AF Corse.
It was a terrific 70th Anni celebration. If you missed Goodwood you can celebrate the 70th Anni of Ferrari in the US at Pebble Beach this month.
