Chaparral 2E #66 at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018

Another timeless but also banned classic present at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 was the Chaparral 2E #66. Back in 1966 the Chaparral 2E was introduced for the Can Am racing series and changed the racing scene forever. During the first race the Chaparral’s finished at 1st and 2nd place. The huge wing placed above the center of the car gave the car a lot of downforce which was pretty unusual back in the days.  The car is power by a 450-hp, 327-cubic-inch aluminum-block Chevy V-8 and had four Weber 48 IDM carburetors. The car was really the fastest car on the track during the races but the team were suffering from reliability problems.
