For the first time in well over 20 years, it will be a very quiet September at the Goodwood Motor Circuit this year. As a small consolation, we today take a closer look at four machines that starred at the Goodwood Revival in 2019.
One of the finest drives of the weekend came in this AC Shelby Cobra, which was driven to victory in the prestigious RAC TT Celebration race by its owner and Le Mans winner André Lotterer. Beautifully prepared, this very genuine Cobra proved blisteringly quick as Lotterer managed to set the fastest ever lap around Goodwood for a Cobra during practice. Having served its purpose, the owner has now put it up for sale with British dealer William I'Anson.
Another hugely successful racer around Goodwood and Le Mans for that matter, is this Lotus 15. Delivered new to John Coombs, it was raced in period by a very young Bruce McLaren. Having come full circle, chassis 609 is today owned and raced by an enthusiast from New Zeeland.
Also a recent veteran of the Revival and the Le Mans Classic, is the Porsche 910 featured today. It was raced in period by a British privateer, who would go on to own the car for over three decades. Its current German custodian knows how to use the car properly as he drove the car on the road from his home in London to Goodwood to take part in the 2019 Revival Meeting.
One of the more unusual cars that competed last September was this Abarth Simca 2000 GT. It was extensively raced in period and then spent many years in the fabulous Maranello Rosso Museum. Now re-painted in the flat black colours it raced in most of its life, the rare Abarth Simca looked very menacing.
