Great view from the cockpit. Almost like being there.

Spectacular driving. Thanks for posting.

Everyone needs to go to Goodwood....at least twice.

Excellent video. Great driving and the power of the FGT was on display in the straights. I suspect a couple more laps and the FGT would have been battling for top spot.

Goodwood is on my bucketlist. I have been watching videos of GT40s race around Goodwood (and UK) for years. It seems to me that there are a lot (too many) of "vintage" GT40s that owners are willing to race/risk. Are these GT40s "authorized" reproductions or are they actually 60s GT40s?

I saw this on another web page and it said the driver was Tom Kristensen, 9 time Le Man's winner. So with more time, he would certainly have been in first place.

Wow!

Thanks for posting.

That's one hell of a driver.

Those boys not fooling around. Some pretty close quarters too. Pesky little f'ers too!

Some are real; crazy. Superformance?

Ditch the wiper.

I do NOT like that chicane!

I don't, but when I went they were all the real deal. I know because when I went up to a few that were prepping for the track, I asked....... and I felt a little admonished when answered :)

I guess they made close to 100 so maybe many of them are still racing but it seems awfully valuable to risk in door to door racing.

Fantastic driving and video that proves conclusively reds are the fastest GTs out there.
