Bernie Ecclestone and his wife Fabiana were just two of the guests paying tribute to Ferrari at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed.

Mr Ecclestone, who has presided over Formula One for several decades, was at the Goodwood track near Chichester for the festival which this year is marking 70 years of the Italian supercar.

The festival, which attracts thousands of petrolheads, saw vintage Mercedes and Ford racing cars – see below – out on the circuit and trying the famous hillclimb.

Among the famous guests were Matt LeBlanc, the Friends star turned Top Gear presenter, and celebrities, such as chef James Martin, who have an interest in motor sport.

And two TV presenters have praised the Festival of Speed before filming part of their new show at the event.

Former racing driver Tiff Needell, and his co-host Jonny Smith, were at Goodwood to produce the first part of Forbidden Drives, their upcoming series, for MotorTrend On Demand.

Tiff said: ‘Where better to come to on a sunny day at the Goodwood Festival? It’s just a magnificent place.’

The festival continues over the weekend, and is likely to see heavy traffic on the A27 and around Chichester.
