2014 Goodwood Revival

You always know what you’re going to get at the Goodwood Revival. The set dressing, the clothes, the cars, the smiling drivers… it’s the same every time. So how come it still manages to surprise and make its captivated audience, many of whom return year after year, gawp and gasp in amazement? We guess some things are never tiresome. Each Revival leaves defining images that linger, then blend in...

Fangio denied Tourist Trophy win by inspired Hales

The Fangio family's Goodwood jinx returned at the sixth annual Revival Meeting. The great Juan Manuel never won at the track, but his nephew Juan Manuel II looked set to nip this trait in the bud on his first appearance there — until the last lap but one.

Spa Six Hours

Spa Six Hours NEW ZEALANDERS ROGER WILLS and Brendon Hartley were the hares for most of the 20th Spa Six Hours, but Simon Hadfield's epic final stint in Leo Voyazides' sister Ford GT40 brought him past Wills, who was grappling with gearbox problems. With 20 minutes to run P/1005 swept past P/1009, which lost a whole 54 seconds on the following lap, then pitted forlornly. Voyazides' Pan B-prepared...

An August Assembly

Although it was not the last VSCC race this year, the August meeting at Cadwell Park retained its delightful atmosphere, rare sunshine filtering through the trees of the scenic and hilly circuit where BBC cameras were stationed — but only for the motorcycle event of the Bank Holiday Monday.

Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...

The Goodwood Motor Circuit Revival

In the end, it surpassed the wildest expectations. Fifty years to the day after its first meeting, motor racing returned to Goodwood with an event none of the 80,000 spectators would argue was not the greatest historic race meeting of all time.
