Derek to be honoured at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed

29th December 2014

Derek will be honoured at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which will be held from the 25th - 28th June. 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the first of his five Le Mans 24 Hours wins, which came behind the wheel of the Gulf Mirage GR8. Next years Festival of Speed will celebrate the very best from the past and present of motoring and motor sport, opening with the Moving Motor Show on Thursday, 25th June.

Alongside the overall theme of ‘Fast and Fearless: Racing on the Edge’, the Festival of Speed will also celebrate the 90th anniversary of the motor racing’s inaugural World Championship, won by Alfa Romeo, and mark 50 years since Honda’s maiden grand prix victory as the Japanese manufacturer returns to Formula 1 with McLaren in 2015.

The event will also pay tribute to the 60th anniversary of two sensational victories; Sir Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson’s triumph on the 1955 Mille Miglia and the first post-war grand prix win for an all-British line-up; Tony Brooks in a Connaught at Syracuse.

The Goodwood Revival, firmly established as the world’s largest and most popular motor racing and vintage culture event, will take place from 11th - 13th September, ensuring neither event will clash with the Formula 1 World Championship calendar.

The Revival will pay tribute to the legendary driver, engineer and racing car constructor, Bruce McLaren, with a special parade of vehicles associated with his career.

Tickets and hospitality packages for both events are on general sale, as are a limited number of tickets for the 73rd Members’ Meeting, which will be held on 21st - 22nd March 2015.
