Mazda 787B Startup - Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011
Warming up in the Cathederal Paddock on Sunday morning 3rd July 2011. Loud? I've stood next to plenty of F1 cars and this was certtainly no quieter. Although it has only a 9000rpm max engine speed, with 12 combustion cycles PER REVOLUTION (unlike a 4 stroke V12 whihc would only have 6) this car produces 108,000 combustion cycles per minute. That is 36,000 more than a current 2.4l F1 car at 18000rpm! This is the only real running 787B, there is however a second car which sports the same detailing (even down to Le Mans 1991 driver names) which is in much better (less faded, and less battle scars) whihc is used as a PR car. This car was a static display on the Mazda Cars UK stand also at Goodwood that day. Enjoy!
Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011 - F1 Cars 1st run
F1 cars from the 70's, 80's, 90s and 00's blasting up the hill including the Willams FW15C, the McLaren MP-4/23, Brawn GP01 and the Lotus 102. Taken from the top of the hill near the finish line. Got to love the sound of the modern F1 cars at the bottom of the hill.
