Lewis Hamilton to drive Ayrton Senna’s 1988 McLaren-Honda at Goodwood – rpmGo.com

With less than one month away until the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed (July 3-5), the organizers announced a special partnership with the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula One team which will bring a few special events to fans attending the show. Motor racing enthusiasts will be able to see Lewis Hamilton driving Ayrton Senna’s 1988 McLaren-Honda Mp4/4 turbo in what will also be a special moment for the British F1 driver, who’s been a big fan of the legendary Senna. Hamilton will also take a few laps in the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-23 which took him to the top last year in the F1 World Championship.

Also, one lucky fan who’ll but a ticket for Sunday, July 5th, will get the chance to be driven up the Festival hillclimb in a Mercedes SLR McLaren, with Lewis Hamilton at the steering wheel. You wouldn’t want to miss this opportunity, would you? So if you had any doubts whether to go or not to the event, I think these doubts should be gone by now.
