In just four weeks at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (FOS), current F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton will tackle the event’s famous 1.16 mile hill-climb in the McLaren-Honda MP4/4 turbo race car that led to Ayrton Senna’s championship win in the 1988 F1 season. Hamilton has been a life-long admirer of the legendary Brazilian driver and to pilot his 1988 MP4/4 is a dream come true for the young Briton.

In addition to driving Senna’s race car, Hamilton will also demonstrate his more familiar Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-23, which took him to an F1 world championship victory last year. On top of that, Hamilton will also take along one lucky visitor on a ride up the Festival’s hill-climb in the Mercedes-McLaren SLR supercar.

Also on hand will be McLaren F1 test driver Pedro de la Rosa who will take an additional two visitors as passengers in the SLR over the course of the event weekend. Pedro de la Rosa, incidentally, will also be celebrating 10 years of F1 involvement at the event.

This year’s Goodwood FOS in the UK will be running from July 3rd to July 5th but unfortunately Lewis Hamilton will only be attending on Sunday the 5th.
