Goodwood 73rd Members’ Meeting to Get TV Broadcast

Gerry Marshall Trophy action at 73rd Members' Meeting

Classic racing highlights of Goodwood 73rd Members’ Meeting will be broadcast on ITV for the first time this April.

The one-hour show will be broadcast on ITV4 on Thursday, 2 April at 9:00pm, presented by Amanda Stretton with commentary from David Addison.

The classic race action will be frenetic, with extended highlights of the Gerry Marshall Trophy for Group 1 touring cars that featured tin-top heroes such as Matt Neal, Jason Plato and Andrew Jordan in machinery as diverse as a 5.7-litre Chevrolet Camaro and a Triumph Dolomite Sprint.

Highlights of the Bruce McLaren Trophy for classic Can-Am sports prototypes – the fastest cars to race during the Members’ Meeting weekend – and the Derek Bell Cup for ‘screamer’ Formula 3 single-seaters will also be shown.

The incredible IWC shoot-out that pitched World Endurance Champion Anthony Davidson in a modern Mercedes Formula 1 car against a brand new AMG GT and the classic ‘Red Pig’ AMG 300 SEL will feature, as will footage from the McLaren F1 GTR and high-airbox F1 high-speed demonstrations.

There will also be insight into the restoration of the ex-Les Leston ‘DAD10’ Lotus Elite that took part in the race that bears his name, an interview with Mini master Nick Swift on his giant-killing antics in his tiny 1275 GT and a tug-of-war between BTCC drivers past and present for bragging rights ahead of the new season.

The programme will be repeated on Easter Sunday, 5 April 6:00pm, with a second repeat on Easter Monday at 11:45pm on the main ITV channel.
