We called a Doctor and one came! Valentino Rossi made a stunning debut at the Festival of Speed.
Straight from a winning run in the Dutch TT at Assen the day before coming to Goodwood, the nine-time MotoGP champion wowed the crowds on a specially liveried Yamaha YZR-M1.
But, that wouldn’t be the end of Vale’s day in West Sussex, as he headed back onto the hillclimb three more times – on four wheels. He drove the following legendary cars: the Le Mans winning Mazda 787B, Lancia Delta S4 and Derek Bell’s Porsche 962.
