Formula 1 driver Max Chilton will become the first contemporary grand prix racer for nine years to contest the Goodwood Revival when he climbs behind the wheel of a 1965 Ford Mustang for the Shelby Cup.
It’s a one-off race being held to mark 60 years of the small-block V8 engine (and the 50th anniversary of one of the most iconic cars to ever use the powerplant, the Mustang), and Max will share driver duties with Richard Dutton, boss of hugely-successful junior single-seater squad Fortec Motorsport. [...]‘Mr Bean’ actor Rowan Atkinson, who has become a Goodwood regular in recent years, will race a 1964 Ford Falcon while former British Touring Car champions Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden will drive, respectively, a Studebaker Lark 500 and a Mustang.
Sounds like fun. Also sounds like an opportunity for some photoshopping.
