As you’ve probably already read, the rolling thunder of Formula 5000 is due to take over the 76th Members’ Meeting for some high-speed demonstrations in less than a month. Some period footage of these monsters in action should whet the pallet suitably. Even through the grainy 1970s footage, you can see these brutes getting sideways under the weight of a 5-litre tower of power.
