Dan Gurney Tribute Parade, Goodwood Revival 2012

To celebrate the incredible life and career of the hugely charismatic Dan Gurney, the 2012 Goodwood Revival featured a re-birth of the "Dan Gurney for President" campaign and a tribute parade of some of his most famous race cars. Ranging from a Lotus Cortina to his own AAR Eagle-Weslake, one of the most beautiful open wheel racers ever built it was truly a fitting way to thank the great man for the entertainment his passion for motor-racing has given us.

Dan Gurney Breaks Records and Wins at 1967 Belgian Grand Prix
Jim Clark led off the grid from pole position and maintained that position for the first 11 laps and was 20 seconds ahead of Jackie Stewart and Dan Gurney when he had to come into the pits for a plug change, which cost him two minutes. Stewart built up a comfortable lead, helped even further when Gurney had to come into the pits with fuel pressure problems, losing another 20 seconds. However, it was now Stewart's time for mechanical problems as his gearshift was faltering. Gurney set a new lap record to catch and pass him 8 laps from the end and gain a maiden victory for the beautiful magnesium and titanium Eagle car. The light weight and advanced aerodynamics of the car made it very fast, and Gurney shattered Tony Brooks' record Grand Prix average of 143 mph (set some 8 years earlier) on his way to victory. The Eagle was timed at 196 mph on the start/finish straight, an extraordinary speed for a car with an engine producing (at that time) something less than 400 h.p. Mike Parkes had a horrendous crash on the first lap at the exit of Blanchimont after losing control (on oil spilled from Stewart's BRM) and broke both legs. He never raced in Formula One again.
