Six teams to attend Goodwood Festival of Speed

User Rating: / 0
There may not be a Grand Prix this weekend, but dont be fooled - the majority of Formula One teams will still be in action at the UKs Goodwood Festival of Speed. Brawn, McLaren, Ferrari, Williams, Toyota and Red Bull are all scheduled to attend the annual three-day celebration of motorsport, which gets under way on Friday.

Goodwood regular and reigning world champion, Lewis Hamilton, will be one of the many drivers in attendance. As well as wowing his fans with a demonstration of his title-winning MP4-23, Hamilton will also be making his way up the famous 1.16-mile hill climb in Ayrton Sennas 1988 MP4-4 turbo.

“Whenever I go to the McLaren Technology Centre, there are two cars that I love the most - the first is the McLaren F1 that I've set my heart on winning and the second is Ayrton's MP4-4,” the British driver said. “Even today, it still looks like the car to be racing! About a month ago, I went down and sat in the car while the guys were preparing it for Goodwood. It is going to be a pretty cool moment!”

Other current Formula One drivers expected to attend include Brawn GPs Jenson Button, Red Bulls Mark Webber and Toyotas Timo Glock. A host of famous names from motor racings past feature in the line-up too, including Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, David Coulthard, Dan Gurney, Damon Hill, Jacky Ickx, John Surtees and Takuma Sato.

The Festival of Speeds programme will also pay tribute to Sir Frank Williams, who is celebrating his 40th year in Formula One racing this season. In addition to an appearance by the great man himself, 13 Williams cars will be on show over the course of the weekend, including the 1970 De Tomaso-Cosworth Tipo 505, Keke Rosberg's 1982 FW08 and the 1996 Williams-Renault FW18.

Racers Montoya, Pruett return to defend Rolex 24

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - As the countdown clock inexorably marched toward the start of last year's Rolex 24 at Daytona, Juan Montoya was answering a question about his teams' chances in the Daytona International Speedway race when he paused in mid-sentence.
Perhaps realizing he was precariously close to all but predicting an outright Rolex 24 win, the confident driver shifted gears ever so slightly and began his answer anew.
