Race one of the St Mary's Trophy for saloon cars raced between 1950 and 1959. Martin Brundle was the highlight of the race for me, moving up from 4th place to challenge for the lead in his Austin A35 (car# 1), before contact with the leader punctured a tyre and ultimately put him out of the race. His efforts were more than appreciated by the crowd though! Tom Kristensen took the victory in his first visit to the Revival (driving an Austin A95 Westminster), after a good race with Patrick Watts (in the Volvo Amazon 122S) was cut short by mechanical failure.
St. Mary's Trophy Races, Goodwood Revival 2012
A collection of footage from the St. Mary's Trophy races for saloon cars of
the fifties at the 2012 Goodwood Revival. These hugely varied tin-tops
always provide exciting on-track action and this year featured a fine
battle between cars as flamboyant as Mk1 Jaguars, Austin A40s, a fine BMW
700 and the unique V8, rear engined Tatra.
