Goodwood roll back the years for memorable Revival meeting

Recalling the sights, sounds and spectacle of a bygone era, the ever-popular Goodwood Revival took fans on a spirited trip down memory lane this past weekend (September 13/14/15).

As has been the case for a number of years, the British Automobile Racing Club continued in its organisational role by appointing marshals and officials, as well as ensuring the smooth-running of the meeting too.

Amidst the variety of celebrations that took place, one of which played homage to Mini, the West Sussex venue played host to a multitude of on-track thrills and spills as it brought together iconic names and machines from the world of two and four wheels.

Catering for unlimited sports prototypes up to 1966, the Whitsun Trophy saw Karun Chandhok pilot the McLaren-Chevrolet M1A to victory whilst Roger Wills was the winner of the Sussex Trophy.

The St. Mary’s Trophy, which is billed as one of the headline acts of the event, served up another mesmerising two races of vintage saloon car action with the pairing of Mike Jordan and Nicolas Minassian charging to the top of the rostrum in their Austin A40.

Harry Dark, Sam Wilson and Gareth Barnett meanwhile were the winners of the Settrington Cup, Richmond & Gordon Trophies and Goodwood Trophy respectively.

There was plenty of edge-of-the-seat entertainment from the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration, which is open to cockpit GT cars that race in the spirit of the RAC TT from 1960-1964.

At the wheel of their AC Cobra, Christopher Wilson and Andre Lotterer reigned supreme to claim outright honours after more than an hour of racing.

Teamwork was also required in the Kinara Trophy, which was another one-hour, two-driver race for closed-cockpit GT cars of three litres and over of a type that raced up until 1963.

Gary Pearson headed a Ferrari 250 GTO entry to triumph and he would enjoy further success as he also ran out as the winner of the Freddie March Memorial Trophy race too.

Robert Barrie, Andy Middlehurst, Peter De La Roche, Martin Overington, and the duo of Lee and Johnston rounded out the list of winners during what proved to be an unforgettable weekend.
