Formula 5000 single-seaters thundered around the Goodwood Motor Circuit this morning as the 76th Members’ Meeting honoured these charismatic racers. This category was hugely popular in Europe, the USA and Australia during the late 1960s and much of the ’70s, and 30 of these small-block V8-engined monsters ventured trackside, ranging from such well-known marques as Lola, Chevron and McLaren to the one-off Hepworth-Ferguson four-wheel drive machine and a brace of ultra-rare Begg-Chevrolets. Several period drivers have also been reunited with their former mounts this weekend including British ace, Tony Trimmer.

These fabulous machines will also be out on track tomorrow afternoon. Not to be missed!
