Honouring 40 years of F1 at Festival of Speed
Part of the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year includes a tribute to one of the stalwarts of Formula One – Sir Frank Williams – who marks 40 years involvement in Grand Prix racing this year.
Throughout the weekend a
number of significant Williams Grand Prix cars and former drivers will be present, culminating on Sunday with a gathering of all of the cars and drivers as tribute to Williams.
Legendary commentator Murray Walker will say a few words about Williams' remarkable motorsport career while a number of former team drivers, including Damon Hill, Alan Jones, David Coulthard and Jacques Laffite will be in attendance.
A gathering of 13 Williams F1 cars will be at the Festival, ranging from the 1970 De Tomaso-Cosworth Tipo 505, right through to the recent Williams-Toyota FW29.
The 1980 championship-winning Williams-Cosworth FW08 of Alan Jones and Damon Hill’s successful 1996 Williams-Renault FW18 will also be present and can be seen in action on the challenging 1.16-mile Goodwood hillclimb.
Commenting on his visit to Goodwood, Williams said, “It will be great for me, and for all of the people that have been a part of Williams, or supported the team over the years, to be there to see a broad selection of our cars, past and present.”
