Celebrities and stars from the world of motorsport went along to the final day of the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

On the final day of the festival, Goodwood welcomed nine-times World Champion, Valentino Rossi, to the event for the very first time - enjoying lunch with F1 star Nico Rosberg.

The Italian MotoGP legend put on some spectacular ‘Flat-out and Fearless’ displays in front of a sell-out crowd on both two and four wheels.

Other stars enjoying the Goodwood event included Kaiser Chief’s star Ricky Wilson, F1 stars Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa and Jenson Button, Jamiroquai lead singer Jay Kay and Olympic gold medallist Salley Gunnell, among others.

For his Goodwood debut ‘The Doctor’ rode his Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP bike to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Yamaha Motor Co, then rode the machine into Goodwood House before appearing on the balcony with Lord March and Suzi Perry.
