RACING legends are delighting the crowds at the Goodwood Festival of Speed today (Sunday, June 29).

Lord March has welcomed racing legends past and present at the motor circuit, including Damon Hill, Lewis Hamilton, John Surtees and Kimi Räikkönen, who is making his debut at the Festival of Speed.

The last day of the event is set to be one of the most exciting, with Surtees and Räikkönen driving title-winning Ferraris in tandem up the hillclimb at 3.15pm.

This marks the 50th anniversary of Surtees’ 1964 Formula One World Championship triumph. He will once more get behind the wheel of his 1964 Ferrari 158 F1, while Räikkönen will drive the Ferrari F2007 that he steered to victory in 2007.

Speaking to the Chichester Observer, Damon Hill said: “This is always a great event, and really does get better and better every year.

“It’s wonderful for the area, and for people who love motorsport.”

Also racing this afternoon is female racing driver Lorina McLaughlin, in a Benetton B192.

There will be more shows in the GAS arena from 3pm onwards, and an air display at 4.30pm.

The festival will finish at 7pm tonight.
