Ferraris at Goodwood Festival of Speed

If you've never been or heard of it, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is a motorsports free-for-all held annually in England. Basically, they bring together many very rare race cars, sports cars, super cars, bikes, rally cars...you name it, they race it up the hill on the Goodwood Estate.

While this year's event did not feature Ferrari, many incredible ones made the run of the hill at the Goodwood Estate, including a breathtaking Ferrari 250 GTO.

Here is a 90 picture photo gallery of this year's great event:

It is a wonderful event and quite enjoyable. The cars Goodwood is able to attract are always extremely impressive.

The 550 GT breaking down on the hill climb was a bit painful to watch though.

FERRARI SCUDERIA SPIDER 16M COMPLETES THE SUPERCAR RUN IN UNDER 1 MINUTE AT THE GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED

Ferrari showcased three of its latest supercars in the Sunday Times Supercar Runs at the Goodwood Festival of Speed: the innovative Ferrari California, the remarkable 599 GTB Fiorano with HGTE package, and the limited edition Scuderia Spider 16M. To the appreciation of packed crowds which lined the hillclimb under gorgeous blue skies throughout the weekend, Ferrari fans were thrilled by the distinctive growl and bark of the V8 and V12 engines that make the Prancing Horse cars such a fan's favourite at this event.

In a remarkable demonstration of driving finesse and incredible agility, the Scuderia Spider 16M completed the 1.16 mile hillclimb in an incredible time of 59 seconds and a video of this astonishing drive is available for download. It makes compelling viewing.

Also available for download are similar videos of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano with HGTE package and the Ferrari California, with an additional "over-the-shoulder" shot of the California which demonstrates the latest addition to the Ferrari range is every inch a true thoroughbred Ferrari.

Here are the videos :

Don't know who the driver was but he made a bit of a mess of hitting the rev limiter and skipping a gear... Still, nice vid.


Onno
