Button confirms Festival of Speed attendance
30 May 2014 – McLaren star Jenson Button has confirmed that he will make an appearance at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, which takes place at the end of next month.
Button, who has made 14 previous appearances at the Festival, is the third Formula 1 champion to confirm his attendance, with John Surtees and Emerson Fittipaldi also set to head to the event between June 26 and 29.
"Goodwood is one of the highlights of my season," said the 2009 world champion.
"I've had the chance to get behind the wheel of some incredible historic racing cars there, which I'd never have been able to drive otherwise, and to meet some of the most enthusiastic fans, who have given me a tremendous amount of support over the years. I'm really looking forward to it."
