During the 2021 edition of Goodwood Festival of Speed, to be held from July 8 to 11, the South African engineer Gordon Murray you will indulge yourself in driving the famous 1,16 mile hill Brabham BT44B-Ford that he designed for the F1 and what had Carlos Reutemann as one of its pilots in the 1975 season.
The Brabham BT44B was the development of the successful Brabham BT44 and it was a step forward in aerodynamic performance. Powered by a 8-liter Ford V3.0 and 460 CV, gave the Brazilian Carlos Pace his first victory in a GP no less than in the Brazilian GP; while Reutemann made him win in the German GP at the legendary Nürburgring.
Additionally, Murray will also bring a IGM F750 1972. It was the first racing car he designed after his arrival in the UK from South Africa in 1969. Conceived to compete in the F750, stood out for having a reclined driving position and a low frontal area.
“The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the ultimate event for any motoring enthusiast. That's why I really wanted two of my favorite racing cars to go up the hill. "Murray explained.
“Both cars demonstrate the advantage of light innovation and both established principles that allowed me to have a successful racing career. They also taught me many things. Learnings I've even used on our latest T.50 supercar and its T.50 brother Niki Lauda for the track. I can't wait to see them up the hill and experience them again myself. "added the head of Gordon Murray Automotive.
