Goodwood Easter Monday
An Immense Effort. – Peter Whitehead taking Lavant Corner in his 1936 B-type E.R.A. on the great drive that earned him second place to Parnell in the Richmond Trophy Race.
Bravo, Parnell! – The man who won three races and set the Goodwood lap record to 87.10 m.p.h.
Country Scene. – The pleasant setting of Goodwood Circuit is nicely emphasised by this picture, with Ashmore’s Maserati, which was off-colour on Easter Monday, in the foreground.
Youthful Victor. – Nineteen-year old Stirling Moss driving his V-twin Cooper to victory at 79.76 m.p.h. in the Second Easter Handicap. He lapped at 82.44 m.p.h.
Oh Dear! – George Abecassis (in white cap) and Geoffrey Taylro (bare-headed) investigate the G.P. Alta’s gearbox trouble on the Monday morning, while father Gerard looks for secrets normally hidden by the bonnet.
Accident! – And a warning to those stupid people who invaded the course. How Rolt’s Alfa-Romeo (left) and Gerard’s E.R.A. (right) finished up after their collision.
Outclassed. – Harrison’s newly-bodied but aged B/C-type E.R.A. has the legs of Johnson’s E-type E.R.A. in the big race of the day, in which the cars of Parnell, Whitehad and Ashmore also vanquished the newest E.R.A.
Denis Poore handled his elderly “3.8” Alfa-Romeo bravely to come in second to Parnell’s Maserati in the Chichester Cup Race.
Hard Trier. – Tony Rolt, who finished second to Parnell in the Third Easter Handicap after his Alfa-Romeo had collided with Gerard’s E.R.A. in the Richmond Trophy Race.
Nicely Placed. – Coldham’s Cooper taking a fast bend during the 500-c.c. Race, which he won at 70.8 m.p.h. We hoe the official on the left doesn’t always stand with his back to the cars.
Also Ran. – This was the only sort of picture which Ken Hutchison’s B.M.W.-engined Veritas was in on Ester Monday.
