Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012 – Top 20 Cars of Interest
1972 McLaren M20 Can-Am was driven by Richard Attwood at Goodwood. Chassis M20-3 served up the final Team McLaren win in Can-Am at the hands of Denny Hulme.
1972 Lola T310 was the last original Can-Am series car built by Lola. It was to be the longest, lowest, and widest Can-Am car of all time. Powered by a big block Chevrolet V8 mated to a Hewland gearbox, it was driven by then-reigning F5000 champion David Hobbs in the 1972 Can-Am series. It was entered by Lola importer Carl Haas and was sponsored by Steed and Goodyear. Just two T310s were constructed, but only this car (chassis HU-01) was ever raced in period.
The rear-steering Peugeot 405 Turbo 16 GR set a record at its debut race at Pikes Peak in 1988, driven expertly by Ari Vatanen. Also starred in the award-winning film titled, “Climb Dance”.
Rod Millen’s blisteringly quick 1998 Toyota Tacoma Pikes Peak won the Unlimited Class at Pikes Peak in 1998 and 1999. The 1,000 hp+ 2.1 liter engine enables the ‘truck’ to hit 60 mph in 1.6 seconds. (Watch 2009 FoS Video).
Bruce Canepa muscled the gigantic 16-liter, 1,500 hp and 4000 ft/lbs torque Kenworth T2000 Pikes Peak race truck up Goodwill Hill.
