Goodwood 73 Members’ Meeting in Pictures

Goodwood Members' Meeting paddock

With bright blue skies and the sound of roaring historic racing engines, Goodwood’s 73rd Members’ Meeting created a lasting impression for many, after a hugely successful, busy and entertaining event.

After a busy Saturday, featuring both touring cars and ex-F1 machines, Sunday featured a nine-race programme featuring everything from 1920s Grand Prix Bugattis to early Can-Am cars; with the Lola driven by Nick Padmore setting a new lap record.

The significance of the Members’ Meeting, now in the second year of its revived format, could be seen in the quality of both cars and star drivers present. The classic Porsche race (John Aldington Trophy, above) featured the very 911 that Vic Elford borrowed to win the world’s first rallycross event in 1967 – and Le Mans winner Richard Attwood. Both were soundly beaten by former British Touring Car champion Andrew Jordan.

Another BTCC champion, Matt Neal, triumphed in a thundering Chevrolet Camaro he shared with David Clark in the Gerry Marshall Trophy race for Group 1 touring cars and there were also victories for some of the greatest names in motor racing history, such as Maserati, Lola, Lister and BRM.

Both days saw superb high-speed demonstrations of Group C Le Mans racers, McLaren F1 GTRs and high-airbox Formula 1 cars; the highlight of which was an unexpected appearance by Freddie Hunt behind the wheel of a Hesketh 308 (above and below) previously raced by his father James Hunt.
