Sometimes cars are banned for being, just a bit too good, sometimes cars are banned for safety reasons, sometimes cars see the rules change to effectively ban them and sometime cars just completely and utterly break the rules until they are banned.
The cars in this video, all conform to one fo those scenarios, but since we love all motorsport history at Goodwood, each one has been seen on the famous Hill at the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard.
It’s quite a mix too, from the Celica GT-Four, which would eventually be thrown out of the championship in its later guise for pushing the rules so far it was just plain breaking them, to the Lotus 56 turbine car, which was effectively banned when turbine-powered cars were outlawed at the Indy 500. Some of them we think are just really cool innovations, and some really did overstep the mark, but all deserve to be showcased in motorsport history.
Let us know which is you favourite banned racing car.
