Daly returns for Revival

Thirty years after he last raced in the UK, former Grand Prix racer Derek Daly will be a star attraction at the Goodwood Revival Meeting in September when he shares the Sunbeam Rapier of Harry Sherrard in the St Mary’s Trophy race.

The 1977 British F3 champion went on to contest 64 Grands Prix before switching his career to the US. He has not raced seriously for over 20 years and the outing at Goodwood will have particular signiicance as his irst run in an F1 car was at Goodwood in December 1977, for the Theodore team. His last race in the UK was the 1982 British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch, when he drove for Williams. As well as his career as a TV commentator and public speaker, Daly (59) now oversees the racing career of his son Conor (above, with Derek).

“I was a great fan of Derek in his career, so I’m thrilled that he has accepted the invitation to race with me,” said Sherrard.
