GOODWOOD REVIVAL ATTRACTS RECORD CROWD
A record sell-out crowd of 149,000 enjoyed a sensational 18th Goodwood Revival Meeting during the weekend of September 11-13 at the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit.
The outstanding on-track moments of the weekend included the first gathering in history of all six original Shelby Daytona Coupes – on the 50th anniversary of the organisation’s World Sportscar title – and the honouring of the career of legendary racer, team boss and constructor Bruce McLaren.
Race highlights included the annual RAC TT Celebration race for early-1960s GT cars, which was won by the JD Classics-prepared Jaguar E-type of former British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden and Chris Ward, and a back-to-front victory in the St Mary’s Trophy for 1960s saloons for the mighty Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt of ‘Mr Le Mans’ Tom Kristensen and Henry Mann.
Seventeen-year-old Peter de la Roche, on his first visit to Goodwood, secured victory in the Earl of March Trophy for post-war 500cc single-seaters, taking the lead at the final corner of a scintillating race, while success in the Lavant Cup, held exclusively for 1950s Ferrari sports prototypes, went the way of James Cottingham’s Ferrari 500 TRC.
