TV personality James martin drove the Ferrari FF at the hillclimb course at the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

James commented: "Fantastic! A great piece of kit, which handles like all the other Ferraris and it's surprising that you've actually got two proper seats in the back. I'm 6ft 2in and I can sit in the back, no problem. There's plenty of leg room. Very, very impressed."

Chris Evans and his fleet of "Magnificent Seven" Ferarris also made a special appearance, concluding his charity drive and dine event on the hillclimb at Goodwood, and raised £1.1 million for Children in Need. The selection of cars included the SA Aperta and the 599 GTO. They were joined by the F40, 250 GT Lusso, 275 GTB/4, 288 GTO and 365 GTC.

Classic Ferraris from the 1950s, 60s and 70s also too on the Goodwood hillclimb, including a unique 375 MM from 1953. The faded and race-worn patina showing the 375 MM has never been restored, and still remains all original parts.

Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro driver, Marc GenE was on track in the 2010 Ferrari F10 single-seater, as driven by Fernando Alonso during his fight for the F1 title last year.
