No F1? Don’t worry about it, we’re about to go to Goodwood for the revival 2021.

 

The weather looks set fair for the weekend so there should be some cracking racing on Saturday and Sunday.  Most of Friday is taken up with practice for the various categories with the first race, the Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy due off at 18:20 featuring the Brundles in an E type. Full timetable can be found here, and a PDF of the latest entry list can be found here.

Here's a taster,

 

 

The Barry Sheene Memorial brings riding and bikes together like this wonderful combination of Troy Corser on a 1928 BMW.

 

 

All racing will be on the Goodwood Youtube Channel which can be accessed via the taster. The feed for this weekend is not open yet, I will post it when it is.

Enjoy everyone

 

Here below is the livestream,  should be up and running tomorrow morning.

Looking forward to seeing Peter Greenfield's Alfetta 158 in the Festival of Britain Race.

Such an amazing event, really hope I can visit it next year! There's just so much emotion in how these classics drive.

This is on my to do list. Seeing these classic raced properly is always impressive.

At the risk of being slaughtered, I have to say that I'm not a great fan of the Goodwood Revival format.

 

Come on, it's fake racing. Ok, maybe one driver or two may provide some kind of action, but most of it is uninteresting. Also the difference of performance among cars and drivers in the same race can be outlandish. I remember some cars being lapped every three laps.

 

There are, certainly, some nice cars, but a prefer a show like the Festival of Speed. Also, the pastiche 1960s style annoys me.

It is a recreation of racing in the 'good old days', so slow cars being lapped frequently is entriely accurate.

 

As for 'fake racing', I am a bit stunned.  Goodwood probably sees more driver on or slightly over the limit than most race meetings.  Stand at Madgwick and watch car after car drifting through the corner and lurching into oversteer over the mid-corner bump.  Why?  Because they are pushing hard.  No tyre management involved, just pedal to the metal, like the Good Lord* intended.

 

* March that is...  ;)

Well, in general, I'm a huge fan of classic cars, but not so much of classic racing. I mean, it's ok as a show, but the "competition" side is usually a bit dull.

Not so at the Revival - I went there four times for all three days each time.  Some drivers were slow, but there were some fantastic drives.

Just think of the smell of Castrol R whist you're watching, that'll give you all the buzz you need.  ;)

Was it 2002 when the Freddie March Memorial Trophy ran through to dusk as a 9 Hours tribute?  I recall Desire Wilson doing fantastic things with a C-type.

Seen the entry list?  Try telling Rob Huff he's just arsing around.

We are going on Sunday in period dress which Mrs Tennis is very excited about. My dad is working there too, plus we all have paddock passes thanks to a friend, so I'm very, very much looking forward to seeing all the cars up close.

I suspect that may have been Freddie March's (now the Duke of course) master stroke, giving the ladies an excuse to dress up.  So now they WANT to go instead of being dragged along less than willingly.  And hence the explosion of support for a historic race meeting, compared to the paucity of crowds at other such events.  Also Goodwood is a wonderful venue and all the sideshows make for very full experience.

 

Just don't go onto the Nostalgia Forum and mention period dress.  There are many there who get very negative about it.  Which is odd, given that it is a Nostalgia Forum...

Love seeing these historic cars being driven as they used to be, but always a shame when one of them gets bent up. Bit of carnage at the start of the Whitsun Trophy practice 😕

The Barry Sheene Memorial is like a who's who of TT. Without actually counting, there's at least 70 TT wins among them.

Aside from the posts here already. But Goodwood tends to be all out racing.

Also, Monaco Historic had some great ones this year.

The Owlet is back! I love that thing. Patrick Blakeney-Edwards drives it with such verve that initially it doesn't look real.

They didn't turn up the volume from the trackside for the V16s.

I can remember standing in pouring rain to watch a gang of Mini Coopers (who had all qualified at the back in dry weather the day before) tearing through the field because the Jags and Ford Galaxies couldn’t put power down in the wet. No fake racing there. I’m frankly astonished by the accusation. I find F1 ‘tyre management’ much more like fake racing.

You gave up too quick Rod, they gave time back. Thoroughly enjoyed that despite the prolonged safety car. A couple of the E's particularly the Stanley/Cottingham car handled like modern GT's.

First race tomorrow 9.45

Those track marshalls need sending to F1 to show them how to do it.

Brundle's 'engine failure' looked more like a blown oil-pipe to me: he was still pushing the car for some distance after the oil smoke appeared, so presumably the engine was still running well at that point...

Possibly, there appeared to be a huge amount of fluid spewing out.
