Pals Gordon Ramsay and David Beckham team up at Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Kitchen Nightmares star arrived with his daughter Holly Ramsay, 22, in style in a 1963 Aston Martin worth up to £1.5million.

Holly smiled at the camera as she sat in the passenger seat of the car, captioning an Instagram post: ‘”We <3 fast=”” cars=”” p=””>

During the festival, the former England captain was spotted in the brand new Maserati MC20 Cielo as crowds of fans waved.

Beckham, 47, shared a snap on his Instagram story alongside Ramsay, 55, and captioned the post: “Great catching up mate!”

The festival has seen an array of incredible cars making their debuts, as well as classic, iconic vehicles from racing’s past.

Both Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell have taken their respective F1-winning cars up the hill.

And Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren and Lamborghini have all unveiled supercars.

Many manufacturers make attempts to break the world record for the hill climb, which is currently held by an electric VW.

Among the many machines on show at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed is the Hennessey Venom F5, an American-built car with a rumoured top speed of 334mph.

While it couldn’t go quite that fast in Sussex, it did go up the famed hill at quite a lick.

Made as a love letter to horsepower by the Texas-based company, the car was recently driven by Top Gear who described it as ‘the world’s maddest hypercar’.

Just 24 coupes will be made, costing £2million a piece, and they are already sold out.

The Venom F5 will do 0-62mph in 2.6secs, 0-124mph in 4.7secs and 0-250mph in 15.5secs, almost twice as fast as the Bugatti Chiron.

Under the bonnet is an engine named ‘Fury’ – understandable given it’s a 6.6-litre twin turbo V8, 1,817bhp.

At this weekend’s festival it was piloted by racing driver Alex Brundle and despite some light rain, video footage shows the astonishing power involved.
