Easter At Goodwood

The Bank Holiday Meeting of the B.A.R.C. promised to be a first-class occasion but, although it was held in sunshine before a record crowd of 55,000, it fell short of that promise. Alberto Ascari and Baron de Graffenried failed to appear, there were many non-starters, and the big race of the day, over 21 laps, had five finishers, only four of whom completed the full distance, while the result was...

The BARC staged its third Members' Sports-Car Race Meeting of 1956 at Goodwood last month. The races, contested in dull but dry weather, were not especially exciting, possibly because a new rule was in force whereby any driver who spun was disqualified.
