F1 champion Raikkonen added to Goodwood entry

Ferrari F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen has joined the list of world champions on this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed entry.

Kimi Raikkonen will join several of his F1 peers at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The 2007 world champion will attend on behalf of Ferrari fuel partner Shell, which has also been named as a main partner of the Goodwood event, and will join F1 rival Festival veteran Jenson Button on the early commitment list.

In all, more than 90 names have confirmed their attendances at 26-29 June event embellishing the Festival's 2014 theme of 'Addicted to Winning'.

Joining Raikkonen and Button will be fellow F1 world champions John Surtees, Emerson Fittipaldi, Sir Jackie Stewart and Damon Hill, while Le Mans 24 Hours winners Emanuele Pirro, Andre Lotterer, Henri Pescarolo and Jackie Oliver will all appear, as will World Rally champions Sebastien Loeb, Bjorn Waldegard and Didier Auriol.

Richard Petty, the most successful NASCAR driver of all time with seven titles in the top 'Cup' category, is joined by fellow legends of US racing, including Indy 500 winners Al Unser, Kenny Brack, Gil de Ferran and Dario Franchitti and two-time Daytona 500 victor Michael Waltrip in one of his own Toyota Camry NASCARs.

On two wheels, 15-time grand prix world champion Giacomo Agostini – the most successful rider in history – will be joined by fellow world champions Freddie Spencer, Wayne Gardner, Chaz Davies and Dougie Lampkin.

Olympic hero Sir Chris Hoy, drag racing legend Ron Hope, celebrity chef James Martin, freestyle motocross heroes Petr Pilat and Edgar Torronteras and X Games BMX legends Brandon Dosch and Kye Forte add further class to an astonishing line-up.

Limited tickets remain available for Thursday, Friday and Sunday of the event, but Saturday and weekend tickets have now sold out.
