If you have never admired the races of the past, stop reading. If you would not have liked to see the clashes between Ford, Ferrari and Porsche at the 24h of Le Mans, this is not meant for you. If you do not miss the races when electronics were virtually non-existent and pilots had to struggle with their machines to get into every corner, you are losing your time. If, on the other hand, you do long for this kind of racing, you may be up to a revelation. Because if you are into classic racing there is still hope for you and a place for you to go to: the Goodwood Revival.
The Goodwood Revival is held at Goodwood Circuit (West Sussex, UK), less than a mile away from the Rolls-Royce factory. It is, undoubtedly, one of the more important classic motoring events in the world. What makes this event so unique is that cars are not there only to be seen, but to be seen racing, too! And believe us when we say that this is no exaggeration, for the Goodwood Revival is but a series of races where pilots such as Tom Kristensen (8 times Le Mans winner), Andy Priaulx (3 times World Touring Car Championship champion) or Derek Bell (5 times Le Mans winner) compete with vehicles ranging from simple touring cars to Formula 1 or Le Mans vehicles from a glorious past!
See it for yourselves in this video of Saint Mary’s Trophy race (featuring 1950 and 1960 touring cars), one of the races of the 2011 Goodwood Revival. Of special interest is the fight of Turner (in a Mini Cooper S) first with Kristensen (Lotus Cortina) and later with Reid (Jaguar Mk 2).
