2018 GOODWOOD REVIVAL - BARRY SHEENE MEMORIAL TROPHY

 

Corser dominated on an 89 year old BMWRACE 1

 

Glen English and John McGuinness claimed the spoils in the opening instalment of the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy double-header.

 

  The Norton Manx duo starred in this thrilling 25-minute encounter, but victory appeared to be heading the way of Duncan Fitchett/Jeremy McWilliams going into the last lap. However, McWilliams took a tumble coming out of the chicane for the final time and dropped his Norton Daytona Manx. He had been leading by eight seconds prior to his spill.

 

  Star during the early running was Australian legend, Troy Corser, who was sharing a 1929 BMW R57 Kompressor with the motorcycle’s owner, Herbert Schwab. Despite riding a ’bike that was considerably older than most machines competing in this 25-minute race, the abnormally brave Corser tore through the order following a Le Mans start, the supercharged BMW writhing and bucking beneath him. He was in the lead inside four laps and stretched his advantage until handing over the reins with just over ten minutes left to run.

 

  McWilliams was the man on the move once all the rider changes were made, and appeared set for a seventh victory at Goodwood, only for the commentators’ curse to strike. Within a split second of his sure-fire win being trumpeted, his ’bike slid out from under him. English and McGuiness came home first after 16 action-packed laps, 1.437sec ahead of Norton Manx men, Ian Bain/James Hillier. Corser and Schwab placed a brilliant third.

 

RACE 2

 

 Australian superstar Troy Corser starred on Sunday afternoon as he and wingman Herbert Schwab won the second thrilling instalment of the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy. Glen English dominated the early running aboard his Norton Manx, and was leading by 2.6sec at the end of the first lap.

 

  He had extended this to 5.47sec by the end of the third tour, and to an incredible 13sec by the time he pitted to hand over the ’bike to 23-time Isle of Man TT winner, John McGuinness. Second place man Schwab had already pitted, and there was no stopping Corser aboard his supercharged 1929 BMW R57.

 

He ate into McGuinness’ lead, clawing back the deficit. He was clocked at an incredible 125mph more than once, and streaked past McGuiness with five minutes left to run. He had time to pat his friend on the back as he did so… Corser’s margin of victory was 11.628sec. English and McGuinness were second from Ian Bain and James Hillier.

2018 GOODWOOD REVIVAL - GOODWOOD TROPHY

 

Tom Dark in the Bugatti T73C faded as the race wore on  Former British GT Champion Callum Lockie claimed repeat Goodwood Trophy honours this afternoon to go with his 2016 triumph. The Scotsman guided Sean Danaher’s nimble Maserati 6CM to win the 20-minute race for Grand Prix and Voiturette cars built and raced between 1930 and ’51. Five-time winner Mark Gillies didn’t make it easy for him, however, and the ERA man led at various points, and only 0.4sec blanketed the top two as the chequered flag descended. Tom Dark had featured during the early laps in his Bugatti T73C, only to lose pace in the final few laps. Gareth Burnett avoided a late scare when lapping an errant backmarker to take the final podium spot in David Baldock’s two-litre Alta.

2018 GOODWOOD REVIVAL - ST MARY'S TROPHY

 

Oli Hart won race 2 in the Alfa RomeoRACE 1

 

  Andy Priaulx emerged victorious after a frenetic St. Mary’s Trophy race although fellow former World Touring Car Champion Rob Huff was first on the road as they crossed the line.

 

Huff blasted off the front row once the flag dropped, but he was a bit too eager and received a ten-second penalty for his trouble. Without pits-to-car radio, Huff was unaware of this, and in the early stages battled mightily with fellow Lotus Cortina man Ash Sutton and Matt Neal in the 4.4-litre Studebaker Lark Daytona 500. Andy Jordan, who started from the back row, was the man on the move, however, and the rallycrosser turned touring car ace tore through the field in his Lotus Cortina and was up to ninth place within four laps. Progress was blunted somewhat for a few laps mid-race after he struggled to find a way past the lumbering Ford Galaxie 500 of Pikes Peak hero Roman Dumas. After attempting several overtakes, he eventually found a way past that didn’t involve driving on the grass, and homed in on the lead battle.

 

  Once in the lead, Sutton eked out his advantage over his pursuers, but the reigning British Touring Car Champion dived into the pits late in the day which promoted Huff back into the ‘lead’ as Priaux took Neal for second. Unaware that second place was actually first, Priaulx tried everything he could to get past Huff on the final tour, and was only made aware that he had won during the post-race interviews. Neal was second from Jordan, with Huff classified in fourth place.

 

RACE 2

 

  19-year-old Olivier Hart took a brilliant win in the incident-filled second instalment of the St Mary’s Trophy saloon car race. The Dutch teen, whose Alfa Romeo 1600GTA was driven by countryman Tom Coronel yesterday, drove brilliantly in a race of two parts.

 

  Lotus Cortina man Mike Jordan led Roger Wills’ lumbering Mercury Cyclone at the start, but there were frenetic battles up and down the order. This was brought into sharp relief on the fourth lap after Duncan Pittaway demolished the chicane in his Plymouth Barracuda. The race was red-flagged as a result.

 

  The race was restarted, only for the safety car to be deployed almost immediately after Peter Chambers barrel-rolled his Lotus Cortina on the approach to St Mary’s. Fortunately, he walked away unaided. The race got underway again with only a few laps left to run, with Hart in a class of one up front, with Ambrogio Perfetti chasing him in his Lotus Cortina.

 

  Unfortunately, the Italian’s car was then tagged by Bill Shepherd’s Ford Galaxie 500 and spun off into retirement. Fourth-place man Andrew Jordan was also a casualty of this melée, and had to cede a place to arch-rival Steve Soper who was fielding his own Lotus Cortina. Hart came home the victor from Wills, but Soper and yesterday’s winner Andy Priaulx triumphed on aggregate.

2018 GOODWOOD REVIVAL - FORDWATER TROPHY

 

Sam Tordoff stormed through from last to second in the Porsche 356  Darren Turner claimed a fantastic Fordwater Trophy win on Saturday morning. The works Aston Martin star appropriately claimed honours aboard Peter Kappeler’s Aston DB2, but star of the race was Porsche 356 man, Sam Tordoff. The pole-sitter fluffed the start and was swamped by the entire field which prompted an epic comeback drive during the 20-minute encounter.

 

  Former British Hillclimb Champion David Franklin lead early on in Arnold Meier’s sublime Ferrari 225S Vignale Berlinette, but his lead lasted only a half a lap before he had a grassy excursion. Veteran charger Stuart Graham then assumed the lead aboard Guy Harman’s blisteringly quick Jaguar XK120. Turner, however, worked his way past on the third lap and was never headed. Tordoff, however, was the fastest man on track, and had moved up from last place to ninth inside seven minutes in his Porsche 356 coupé. He lost a little time while attempting to lap Guy Loveridge’s Connaught, but the British Touring Car Championship ace had moved up to third place going into the final lap. This soon became second, but Turner was too far up the road for him to be denied victory, though.

 

  The elated winner accepted the garlands and said: “I love racing the Aston and have finally won at Goodwood. I couldn’t be happier.”

2018 GOODWOOD REVIVAL - BARRIE WILLIAMS

 

Drifting the Morris Minor 2002Barrie & Attwood sabotaging Sytner 2004More fun with Sytner's Brabham 2004  As Saturday morning broke the sad news that Goodwood fan favourite Barrie “Whizzo” Williams had passed away at the age of 79 spread through the paddock. In a career that spanned more than half a century he may not have made a mark on the international scene but was a star in British national motor sport in everything from rallying (winning the 1964 Welsh Rally) through touring cars and single make production saloons through the 1970s and 80s.

 

As his professional career wound down, historic motorsport became his passion and his ability to dominate the most difficult cars and his to slide a car to outrageous angles thrilled and entertained crowds where-ever he raced.

 

  He won several times at Goodwood, including the inaugural RAC TT Celebration in 1998 in Nigel Corner's E-type Jaguar but as much as anything it was his willingness to stop and spend time to talk and joke with fans that won many hearts. My first memory of Barrie was at the 2002 Revival where he was driving a Morris Minor in the St Marys Trophy. No chance of winning but the display of drifting he put on meant that you knew where he was on the track from the cheering of the crowd as he hung the back out, smoking the tyres through every corner. A couple of years later during a delay to recover a damaged car I made the suggestion to Barrie that he may be able to jump Frank Sytner at the re-start if he swept some of the dust and debris on the start line under the rear wheels of Sytner’s Brabham. Minutes later with broom in hand both he and Richard Attwood were all giggles.

 

  A wonderful man to – I won’t say have known – but met and spent time with. My sympathies to his partner Cathy and countless friends across the sport.

2018 GOODWOOD REVIVAL - KINRARA TROPHY

 

Pirro and Halusa win in the   Emanuele Pirro and Niklas Halusa claimed a convincing victory in the Kinrara Trophy race, which kicked off the on-track action at the 2018 Goodwood Revival Meeting on Friday evening. The Ferrari 250GT SWB ‘Breadvan’ duo were made to work for the win, however, with Jaguar E-type pairing Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen being a threat for much of the one-hour running. It was only in the final few laps that the win was assured for veteran Pirro and his young wingman.

  Halusa was slow off the blocks at the start of the race, the Austrian’s Ferrari smoking its rear tyres as it struggled to find traction. Even so, the pole-sitting ‘Breadvan’ was in the lead as the field arrived at Madgwick for the first time. Halusa belied his lack of experience by keeping the fast-starting Minshaw at bay for the first two laps, only to get jumped at Madgwick third time around. He returned the favour at the same spot a lap later, and the warring duo continued to trade places as they streaked away from the rest of the field. Just 0.47sec covered the top two at quarter-distance, and there was barely a car’s length between them when the pits opened for driver changes 23 minutes in.

 

  Minshaw was the first to blink, with Keen emerging on track in third place behind the Franklin/Lindsay E-type and the leading ‘Breadvan’. Halusa pitted 15 laps in, with Pirro venturing onto the circuit a few seconds after Keen had assumed the lead at the chicane. The race soon returned to a Ferrari versus Jaguar battle, with five-time Le Mans winner Pirro taking the lead at half-distance. The Roman wasn’t allowed to escape, though, and Keen nosed ahead in traffic, but the ‘Breadvan’ wasn’t to be denied. In the final quarter-of-an-hour, Pirro gradually eked out an advantage after Keen lost time amid errant backmarkers.

 

  In the closing minutes, all eyes were on the battle for third place. Nigel Greensall had seemed assured of the position aboard the E-type roadster he was sharing with the car’s owner, Chris Milner. Nevertheless, Rob Huff threw caution to the wind in the E-type coupé started by Richard Meins, the former World Touring Car Championships guided the car on its lock-stops as he chased down his rival, and was glued to his tail with only 40-seconds left to run. Huff didn’t let the small matter of an unsecured bonnet obscuring his windscreen slacken his pace, and he pushed Greensall wide at Lavant to take the place. It was a thrilling end to a race that rarely lacked for dramatic dices.
