Video: This amateur F5000 footage looks and sounds incredible

Can-Am-style V8 muscle, single-seater slight-of-form. That’s a recipe for noise and speed quite unlike anything else. Like Formula 1 but with any delusions of delicacy and sophistication squashed by big belching 5-litre V8s.

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. We can’t wait to get up close with these things as they stretch their legs at Goodwood, even though we’ll likely be deafened…

Want to see these F5000 beasts in action? Tickets to the 76th Members' Meeting are on sale now!
