Goodwood to celebrate 70 years of Ferrari

A HIGHLIGHT of this summer’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will be a glittering array of at least 70 significant Ferraris, as the legendary marque celebrates the 70th anniversary of its founding by Enzo Ferrari, in 1947.

From Thursday June 29 to Sunday July 2, some of Ferrari’s finest road and racing cars will be found at the Festival, including competition sports cars and single-seaters, incredible road cars, and the very latest supercars. For lovers of the Italian brand, it will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

From Ferrari’s long, continuous and hugely successful history in motorsport, a number of the most celebrated of Maranello’s racers will be in action up Goodwood’s famous 1.16-mile hill.  Among them will be around 25 single-seater Ferraris, covering each of the key post-war Grand Prix eras.

Sports cars will chart Ferrari’s landmark successes in all the great endurance races, from the late 1940s right through to the present day.

A line-up of current production cars will grace the Michelin Supercar Paddock, as well as running on the hill.

On a calmer note, one of the classes in the popular Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ concours d’elegance will be dedicated to Ferrari’s legendary 250 models – named after the 3-litre V12 which propelled the Scuderia to countless victories on-track, as well as powering some of its most iconic road cars.
