The 40th anniversary of the world-beating Ford DFV F1 engine—the most successful F1 engine of all time—will be celebrated at Brands Hatch on June 30–July 1, during the Autoglym HSCC Historic Festival.
Headlining the weekend’s program of top-level historic motorsport will be Round Six of the FIA Historic Formula One Championship (HFO). In addition, the Historic Festival will celebrate another significant 40th anniversary when it pays tribute to the birth of the Formula Ford.
It was at Brands Hatch on July 2, 1967 that Ray Allen won the first ever Formula Ford race, in a Lotus 51. From that first race, the new Formula Ford series grew exponentially, as competitors grabbed the chance to take part in this exciting, competitive and affordable form of racing. At the Autoglym Festival, Ray Allen will be reunited with a Lotus 51 and will demonstrate it in advance of a special race for pre-1972 Formula Fords.
