Raikkonen and Surtees Star as Goodwood FOS comes to a Close

The final day of the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed saw two of Ferrari’s World Champion Formula 1 drivers unite for an once-in-a-lifetime moment.

1964 World Champion John Surtees and 2007 champ Kimi Raikkonen both went up the iconic 1.16 mile Goodwood Hillclimb in their respective title winning cars together; Surtees in his Ferrari 164 and Raikkonen in his Ferrari F2007. The Briton and the Finn were amongst a host of star attractions on the final day of the event in West Sussex.

2008 Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton also participated in the event, performing a number of pirouettes in front of Goodwood House in a Mercedes car previously raced by seven-time F1 champion Michael Schumacher. Another Brit, Damon Hill was reunited with the car that took him to the 1996 Formula One title, driving his Williams-Renault FW18.

There were high profile names from the world of motorcycling on show too on Sunday. Current British MotoGP riders Bradley Smith and Scott Redding arrived at Goodwood fresh on the back of their Dutch TT event at Assen in the Netherlands to entertain the crowds. Smith rode an ex-Kenny Roberts Yamaha YZR 500, while Redding took Freddie Spencer’s Honda NSR 500 for a ride.

Spencer himself was also on hand to take a ride at Goodwood, as was Wayne Gardner, Jonathan Rea and Giacomo Agostini, who rode the Goodwood Hillclimb on a classic MV Agusta.

The world of Rallying was also on show at the festival, with current World Rally Championship driver Dani Sordo taking his Hyundai i20 WRC around the Forest Rally Stage in the fastest time of the weekend. Classic and historic rally cars from Skoda, Toyota, Saab, Ford and Subaru were on show.
