Here's another big gallery of pics from Goodwood. This time we're posting images of the various open-wheel racers that haven't been seen elsewhere in our galleries. Think Indy, vintage sports car, A1GP, and the like. A lot of highlights in this group: The 1933 Napier-Railton that was driven by Rowan Atkinson on Sunday, the "Blitzen Benz" that sounded like a biplane, Arie Luyendyk driving Emerson Fittipaldi's 1990 Penske-Ilmor PC-19, Sir Jackie Stewart driving the 1966 Lola-Ford T90 he drove in the 1967 Indy 500, and Al Unser, Sr. right next to him in a similar car. The most bizarre car in the group had to be the 1960 Milliken MX1 Camber Car. Driven by its 90-something designer and namesake, William Milliken, it really wowed the crowd with its 45-degree splayed motorcycle wheels. We swore it had already been pranged in the paddock when we first saw it emerge onto the track.

      There is a chapter on the Camber Car, with pictures and drawings, in Bill Milliken's autobiography,

      This site also has a free download of a bio from Automobile Quarterly, "Mister Supernatural" by Karl Ludvigsen.
      Other books by Milliken can be seen here,

      Merecedes made a strange prototype a few years ago that had the wheels cambered in like that.

      I'm certain that Mr. Milliken has many theories and cold hard facts behind his camber car.

      Those of you unfamiliar, Bill Milliken is a close friend to Maurice Olley, father of the independent suspension. He's also the founder and builder of the largest and most accurate tire-testing machine in the world, and an enthusiastic racecar, airplane, and all things mechanical guy. Milliken's Corner at Watkins Glen is named after one of his famous crashes and continual spins.
