The theme for Goodwood’s 2016 Festival of Speed, set for the weekend of June 23-26, will be “Full Throttle—The Endless Pursuit of Power,” with the event celebrating the most powerful competition cars and bikes in the history of motor sport. Alongside its central theme, FoS 2016 will also celebrate the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, observe the 50th anniversary of the original Can-Am Series and pay tribute to James Hunt on the 40th anniversary of his World Championship victory for McLaren in 1976.
The 2016 Goodwood Revival on the weekend of September 9-11, will honor the late Sir Jack Brabham, 50 years after he became the only driver in F1 history to claim the World Championship driving a car bearing his own name. That 1966 crown was the Australian’s third World Championship. Brabham raced and tested extensively at Goodwood during his career, and developed a number of championship-winning cars at the circuit. A huge gathering of single-seaters, sedans and sports cars encompassing his career as a driver and team owner will take part in a number of on-track demonstrations during the weekend.
