Good­wood re­veals 2016 high­lights

Ex­cess power and the achieve­ments of Sir Jack Brab­ham to be cel­e­brated

Octane - - IGNITION // NEWS -

it’s that time of year again, when Good­wood an­nounces the main themes for the Fes­ti­val of Speed and Re­vival events – and they’re look­ing as strong as ever.

The main theme of the Fes­ti­val, which takes place on 23-26 June, is ‘Full Throt­tle – The End­less Pur­suit of Power’, which sim­ply pro­vides an ex­cuse to run near-un­man­age­able ma­chines such as the Porsche 917 (left) up the hill. More specif­i­cally, the Fes­ti­val will also cel­e­brate the 100th run­ning of the In­di­anapo­lis 500, 50 years since the in­au­gu­ral Can-Am Se­ries and the 40th an­niver­sary of James Hunt’s 1976 World Cham­pi­onship win.

The Good­wood Re­vival, on 9-11 Septem­ber, will hon­our the late Sir Jack Brab­ham on the 50th an­niver­sary of him be­com­ing the only driver in his­tory to win the For­mula 1 World Cham­pi­onship in a car bear­ing his own name.
