Goodwood Festival of Speed

The following week it was off to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Lord Charles March’s annual extravaganza of everything connected with motor-sport from both ancient and modern times.

McLaren team mates Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, 2010 championship contender Red Bull’s Mark Webber, test driver Daniel Ricciardo and brilliant designer Adrian Newey were there.

Nico Rosberg and team test driver Nick Heidfeld for Mercedes. Past Formula One world champions and Grand Prix winners included Emerson Fittipaldi, Sir Jackie Stewart, Mika Hakkinen, John Surtees, Sir Stirling Moss, Jochen Mass and Patrick Tambay.

The Porsche Museum brought their Porsche 908/3 for me to drive. No, this is not Jo Siffert and my 1970 winning car but the place finisher driven by Pedro Rodriguez and Leo Kinnunen. Leo setting the fastest lap in the race on the last lap, as he passed the factory Ferrari 512 driven by Sicilian
hero Nino Vacarella and Ignazio Giunti.
