Williams Heritage is the newly formed division of the race team established specifically to showcase the team’s not insubstantial history. Who could forget its victories with the likes of Nigel Mansell and Damon hill at the wheel?
The Festival of Speed will be one of its very first outings, where it will showcase the 1996 title winning FW18 (driven at the event by Damon Hill and Felipe Massa, no less). Completing Williams’ presence at Goodwood will be a mocked-up pit garage scene featuring a car in the latest Martini Racing colours.
Williams Heritage is run by Jonathan Williams – the son of Sir Frank, and not the racing driver of the same name for whom Frank was a mechanic in the 1960s. Williams made its Grand Prix debut with a March chassis in 1977, while it became a constructor a year later.
Jonathan Williams said: ‘The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a highlight of the motorsport calendar and it’s always fun to showcase Williams’ historic assets to thousands of highly knowledgeable fans.’
