The themes for next year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival have been announced.

The 2016 Festival of Speed will be titled Full Throttle – The Endless Pursuit of Power.

It will celebrate the most powerful competition cars and bikes in the history of motor sport.

Alongside the central theme, it will also celebrate the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, the inaugural Can-Am Series 50 years ago and pay tribute to James Hunt on the 40th anniversary of his World Championship victory with McLaren in 1976.

As usual, the event will open with the Moving Motor Show, on Thursday, June 23, featuring many of the world’s largest manufacturers showcasing their latest models, alongside exciting and innovative concepts.

The 2016 Goodwood Revival will honour the late Sir Jack Brabham, 50 years after he became the only driver in F1 history to claim the World Championship in a car bearing his own name.

Brabham raced and tested at Goodwood extensively during his career, and developed a number of championship-winning cars at the motor circuit.

A huge gathering of single-seater, saloon and sports cars encompassing his career as a driver and team owner will take part in a number of on-track demonstrations during the weekend.
