Another fantastic day at Goodwood

The Argus: Felipe Massa will be appearing at Goodwood Festival of Speed today Felipe Massa will be appearing at Goodwood Festival of Speed today

ONE of the most famous names in Formula One will be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed today.

Fresh from qualifying in pole position at The Red Bull Ring in Austria, Felipe Massa will return to Goodwood for the first time in 11 years to drive the Williams’ championship winning FW18.

He said: “I’m really happy to be able to get behind the wheel of one of the team’s historic cars.

“I am looking forward to driving in front of all the amazing fans who have a true love for motorsport.”

The FW18 was driven by Damon Hill in his 1996 championship winning season.

Another highlight of the festival is taking place today where around 60 of the world’s fastest cars will take part in the Supercar Shootout.

Among cars on show will be the Koenigsegg One, one of the most exclusive production cars ever made.

Only six have been made and all have been sold so this will be one of the only chances that petrol heads will get to see the car up close.

Displays will also be taking place in the air as well as on the track.

RAF aerobatic team, the Red Arrows, and the world’s last flying Vulcan will fly at Goodwood.

The Supercar Shootout is to take place at 2.05pm. The Goodwood gates will open at 7am today, with the first event scheduled for 8.30am.

Yesterday spectators at Goodwood saw some of the Formula 1 cars that will be racing up the famous hill over the weekend.

They included Ferrari and Mercedes F1 cars, which will be driven by the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen.

Children had a whacky races event with a chance to sit in the hot seats of Dick Dastardly and Muttley.

Two year old Francis Boxhall was one of the younger spectators at yesterday’s Goodwood festival.

Francis’ Mum, Karla, treated Francis to a trip to Goodwood after he underwent life saving heart surgery.

Francis was born with a condition that affects just one in 20 million children, which caused blood to pump through his organs in the wrong direction.
