Shelby Cup Cobra Race, Goodwood Revival 2012
To celebrate Carroll Shelby's magnificent Ferrari beating Cobra's fiftieth
anniversary, the 2012 Goodwood Revival played host to an inspiring one-make
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.

The Shelby Cobra needs little introduction as it is easily one of the most
recognizable and most copied sports cars of all time. The 289 "FIA" was
built by Shelby American to beat Ferrari at it's own game in the FIA World
Goodwood Revival 2012 - Silver Arrows demonstration laps | Full HD stereo
Video by http://www.ClassicarGarage.nl - Goodwood Revival 2012. For the
first time since the late 1930'ies the famous German 'Silver Arrows'
returned on British soil. The impressive and then super high tech
Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union racers can here be seen in some demonstration
laps with their former competitors like ERA, Bugatti and Maserati. As the
Goodwood speaker says at the beginning of the video: A once in a lifetime
opportunity! The V12 and V16 'Silver Arrows' came from the Audi and
Mercedes Museums, very unique and still giving me goose spots hearing and
seeing those great cars lapping round Goodwood.

Footage shows me (Ben Adams) racing a Turner-Ford MKII at the 2012 Goodwood
Revival in the Fordwater Trophy.
Started 9th, finished 7th.
The footage shows from the green flag lap through to the end of the race.
Unfotunately I spent most the the race alone as I was unable to keep up
with the leading pack but was a good distance ahead of the rest of the
field. However, it was a great effort from a little car and this shows a
good example of what it is like to race at Goodwood.
Sorry about the camera positioning and sound quality!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Goodwood Revival is a three-day festival held each September since 1995
for the types of road racing cars and motorcycle that would have competed
during the circuit's original period—1948--1966. It is one of the world's
most popular motor race meetings and the only UK event which recreates the
golden era of motor sport from the 1950s and 1960s. The festival acts as a
showcase for exceptional wheel-to-wheel racing around a classic circuit,
untouched by the modern world and relives the glory days of Goodwood Motor
Racing Circuit, which ranked alongside Silverstone as Britain's leading
racing venue throughout its active years. Between 1948 and 1966 Goodwood
hosted contemporary racing of all kinds, including Formula One, the famous
Goodwood Nine Hours race and the celebrated Tourist Trophy sports car race.
The festival includes Grand Prix cars from the Fifties and Sixties, sports
and GT cars, as well as historic saloon cars and little-seen Formula
Juniors. Many of these important historic racing cars are driven by famous
names from motor sport past and present. Famous drivers who have taken part
include: Sir Stirling Moss, John Surtees, Sir Jack Brabham, Phil Hill,
Derek Bell, David Coulthard, Damon Hill, Gerhard Berger, Bobby Rahal,
Johnny Herbert, Wayne Gardner, Giacomo Agostini, Rowan Atkinson (as Mr.
Bean), and the late Barry Sheene and Peter Brock.
The restored circuit is unchanged from its heyday and many visitors wear
appropriate period clothing and no modern vehicles are allowed within the
circuit perimeter throughout the weekend (except modern race fire and
rescue vehicles). There are also theatrical sets that bring the past
back to life including many historic aircraft.
