Can-Am Thunder Rolls into Goodwood

Festival of Speed | Press Article 17/04/24

The ground shook this morning as the mighty Can-Am cars took to the Hill. The fiftieth anniversary of the original ‘Anything Goes’ race series is being celebrated at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed, a variety of cars having been restored specially for the weekend. These include the sensational Castrol-liveried BRM P154 which the Hepworth team finished on the eve of the event. Other standouts include the Ferrari 712 – the largest displacement car ever made by the Scuderia – of Paul Knapfield and Lionel Dodkins’ awe-inspiring March-Chevrolet 717.

Evergreen star Brian Redman, who raced Can-Am cars in period, braved the massively powerful Revs Institute Porsche 917P/A. Unfortunately, his run coincided with a sudden deluge which resulted in a brush against the hay-bales. Fortunately, the legendary Lancastrian emerged unscathed.
