The news concerning changes to the Goodwood Revival brought to mind a thought I had several years ago when Lord March started the event. This concerned a class catering for the Specials which constituted a large percentage of the entries at Goodwood and many other tracks around the country. I believe there are enough Specials — Riley, MG, etc — to make for a very interesting field.
Many of the current or late manufacturers started as Special builders: Healey, Allard, Cooper, Lotus and others. A race in tribute to the cars built and entered by the sometimes impecunious but always enthusiastic Special builders would not only be justified, but probably welcome to many owners — and spectators.
