One particular classic Ferrari intrigued Pedro: a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB (top). The owner of the car was honoured to share the history of his historic Endurance Racer with the F1 driver, who clearly appreciates the importance that such iconic cars have had in creating the Ferrari myth that it is today.

Ferrari was honoured to offer Atty Lennox, Lord March’s daughter, the chance to experience driving up her father’s very famous driveway in a 458 Speciale, which made its UK debut here at the event. She said: “It’s an incredibly powerful car, yet so beautiful and smooth: it totally blew my mind.”

On Goodwood, she commented: “It has a different vibe every year with the different cars that come, but it’s the same familiar faces that are the motorsport family of Goodwood. It’s a really magical place.”
