A collection of footage from the St. Mary's Trophy races for saloon cars of the fifties at the 2012 Goodwood Revival.

Goodwood Revival 2010, St Mary's Trophy, Race One
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

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.

race of his fabulous creations. Lasting forty five minutes for two drivers,
crowds were wowed by the sound of the biggest gathering of such machines
ever in the UK. Victory was taken by the Hall brothers ahead of the Dutch
pairing of Tom Colonel and David Hart in second and Ludovic Caron and
Anthony Reid in third.
