Video: Gerhard Berger's screaming Ferrari 640 lights up 81MM

One of the most hotly-anticipated moments at the 81st Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport was Gerhard Berger being reunited with his 1989 Ferrari 640 F1 car. A generation of Tifosi rejoiced in unison, as the 3.5-litre V12 barked into life for a few glorious laps at Goodwood.

Gerhard being Gerhard didn’t hold back either, and put on a show for the ages, showing that V12 engine revs it hasn’t seen since 1989. As the car spit up sparks on the start-finish straight on the way into Madgwick, the crowds erupted with joy as memories from one of F1’s greatest eras came flooding back.

The most beautiful F1 car ever made? It’s in the running. One of the greatest sounding F1 cars of all time? Almost certainly. And Gerhard, a racer’s racer, loved soaking up all the motorsport love Goodwood goers had to give. A wonderful moment we’ll always cherish.
