DFV race to honour Cosworth founder
The life and work of Keith Duckworth will be celebrated in a special F1 race during the Walter Hayes Trophy meeting at Silverstone on November 5.
The BRDC has inaugurated a Keith Duckworth Trophy for the winner of a race for any DFV-powered F1 car during the annual FF1600 knock-out competition.
“Keith was a strong supporter of the Walter Hayes Trophy and always attended the event to meet the Hayes family,” explained event organiser James Beckett of the BRDC.
Duckworth, the founder with Mike Costin of Cosworth, was responsible for the design of the Ford-badged DFV engine which revolutionised grand prix racing in the late 1960s.
