Famous races at Goodwood April 6, 1953 – Glover Trophy

In the immediate post-war years, BRM was the subject of much public emotion as the British team battled to take on the rest of the world.

The V16-engined P15 may not have enjoyed great support in the World Championship, but it garnered many non-championship F1 and Formula Libre victories, including the 1953 Glover Trophy.

The 15-lap race ran on a fast-drying track and Reg Parnell set the early pace for BRM until a supercharger drive failed. Ken Wharton duly took over the lead from his team mate and set a new circuit record on his way to victory. Wharton repeated the result a year later before the Maserati 250Fs took over domination of the race in 1955 and 1956.

May 26, 1958 Whitsun Trophy

There was no question that the Lister Jaguar was faster than the Jaguar D Type as teams prepared for the 1958 Whitsun Trophy. However, in his final season of racing, Duncan Hamilton came close to claiming the Whitsun Trophy in his D Type.

Ranged against Hamilton were the Listers of Graham Whitehead and Bruce Halford but at the Le Mans-type start, Whitehead’s car was slow to fire. Halford then led before sliding off at St Mary’s, leaving Hamilton with a clear lead.

However, he eased off too much and by the time he realised that Whitehead was closing in, it was too late, and Whitehead swept into the lead with two laps to run.

Hamilton duly made amends later in the day by winning the saloon car race in the Jaguar of John Coombs.

April 11, 1966 Sunday Mirror Trophy Formula 2

After almost an hour of racing in what would be the final F2 race at Goodwood, the Brabham BT18-Hondas of Jack Brabham and Denis Hulme finished less than half a second apart in a display of dominance. Even the skills of Jochen Rindt in an SCA-powered BT18 could not keep within half a minute of the Honda engined cars.

When Goodwood announced a limited programme of racing for 1966, F1 racing was no more. But a round of the European F2 Championship headlined the last major meeting at Easter.

The entry was led by the Lotus of Jim Clark, but he was out after 11 laps with a puncture. Jackie Stewart’s Matra hit throttle problems, while Graham Hill claimed fifth behind the works Brabhams and the Roy Winkelmann BT18s of Rindt and Alan Rees. Three months later the circuit was closed.

August 24, 1963 Tourist Trophy

For seven years in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the famous Tourist Trophy race was held at Goodwood and the 1963 race made it four wins in a row for Ferrari as Graham Hill triumphed in the 250GT0 of John Coombs.

As a round of the World Sports Car Championship, the race was a three-hour, 130-lap test of endurance, with many of the leading drivers opting to race solo.

Jaguar and Aston Martin offered the main opposition to Ferrari, but could simply not match the pace of the Ferraris. At the end of over three hours on a hot afternoon, it was Hill and team mate Mike Parkes that beat the E Types of Roy Salvadori and Jack Sears by a clear lap.
