Lunch with .... Tony Southgate

He’s one of the most successful designers of all, with Grand Prix, Indy 500 and multiple Le Mans winners to his credit. And when he retired, he went racing… It’s progressively harder these days for racing car designers to demonstrate true versatility. Formula 1 has greedily made itself the centre of everything, yet the very strictures of its regulations seem to stifle original thinking. As the...

Rob Widdows

A fresh fixture for goodwood Members Only. A phrase you never want to see. Unless you are a Member.

Continental notes

Activity on the Continent has now finished, as far as racing is concerned, but there is still plenty of news from the Continent and outstanding last month was the revelation of the new G.T. Ferrari.
