With just over six weeks before the start of the 2010 Festival of Speed (July 2-4), Goodwood can confirm more than 80 star drivers and motorcycle riders will be present at the world's largest celebration of motoring culture. This includes more than 20 World Champions who, between them, have collected more than 70 championship titles.

Reigning Formula One World Champion Jenson Button will be in action on the famous Goodwood hillclimb, as will his McLaren teammate and 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton. Joining the McLaren drivers will be fellow 2010 season F1 competitors Mark Webber behind the wheel of his Red Bull, as well as Nico Rosberg in his Mercedes, and Bruno Senna will drive his uncle Ayrton Senna's iconic McLaren MP4/8. Past F1 champions and Grand Prix winners at the Festival of Speed are set to include Emerson Fittipaldi, Sir Jackie Stewart, Mika Hakkinen, John Surtees, Sir Stirling Moss, Jochen Mass and Patrick Tambay.

Joining these drivers will be a roll-call of other motorsport stars that reads like a who's who of motor racing. From the world of rallying, Miki Biasion will be reunited with a Lancia Delta; American 'Gymkhana' video and current WRC star Ken Block will be in his Ford: 2009 IRS Champion Kris Meeke will be going sideways in his Peugeot; as will IRC rival Guy Wilks in his Skoda. Many other rallying greats will be reacquainted with the cars that made them famous, including Rauno Aaltonen, Jimmy McRae, Russell Brookes, Bjorn Waldegard and Markko Martin.

Motorcycling heroes will include Giacomo Agostini, Kevin Schwantz, Chaz Davies, Neil Hodgson and Trevor Nation, plus many others, including 12-time Trials Champion and Goodwood legend Dougie Lampkin.
