Ferrari Lights Up Goodwood with Supercars Past and Present

Goodwood Festival of Speed

Two UK debuts and a magnificent collection of classics wowed the crowds at the Goodwood FOS.

Ferrari used the occasion of the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend to bring its two latest convertibles - the new 458 Spider and the refreshed California 30 - to the UK for the first time. Joining the barchettas on the run up the hill were the all-wheel drive, V12 FF and the 2009 F60 single-seater. Scuderia Ferrari driver Marc Gene remarked: "The track is extremely narrow, so it feels quite fast even though we are only doing 156 mph."

"We have brought the car here because it won in 2009 and we like to bring F1 to the fans here in England," continued Gene. "The Festival of Speed is one of the biggest - if not the biggest - events in the world."
