Ford GT40 and Kenny Brack at Goodwood Revival
Sure, the very famous races in the immense British estate of the mighty Lord march They have always been well known precisely for the greatness of their participants; both in relation to the human part (great figures of motorsport and many of the best drivers of yesterday and today) as well as the glamor of its powertrain.
