I read with interest in your February 2012 issue that this year’s Goodwood Revival will feature an all-Cobra race, announced as being the first of its kind in Britain.
Well, not quite… On July 22, 1990 the HSCC put on an ‘AC Cobra Trophy’ at its International Chevron Association Weekend at Donington Park. The race drew a respectable entry of 23 cars (of which eight were of the road-going variety) but no special-bodied cars were present.
No doubt the promised event at Goodwood will be a different kettle of fish altogether, but the first all-Cobra race on British soil it will definitely not be.
