The 2013 Goodwood Revival Ford GT40 Whitsun Trophy Race - 14/09/13
Taken from the Goodwood website:
The 2013 Goodwood Revival to Mark the 50th Anniversary of the Ford GT40's
Development with a Unique One-Model Race. The world's finest collection of
significant and authentic racing Ford GT40s will be gathered at the 2013
Goodwood Revival (13-15 September) for an exceptional one-model race; the
first time in history that a dedicated competition has ever been held for
these iconic Ford racers.
The 2013 Revival's Whitsun Trophy race will mark 50 years since the genesis
of the Ford GT40 programme. Although the first GT40 wasn't completed until
early 1964, the Ford project actually began a year earlier in 1963, when
Henry Ford II - snubbed by Enzo Ferrari over the sale of his company to the
Michigan-based automotive giant - set out to beat 'il Commendatore' at his
own game, with sights set firmly on victory in the Le Mans 24Hours race.
A Ford advanced vehicles operation was set up in Slough to deliver this
goal and the GT40 programme was led by Eric Broadley, who had engineered
the Lola Mk6 GT that first raced in 1963, a closed coupe designed along
similar lines to the GT40. The GT40 was created to meet with new
manufacturer prototype regulations at Le Mans, and the Ford went on to
become an endurance racing icon, winning the 24 Hours race at la Sarthe
four years in a row, from 1966 to 1969.
The Whitsun Trophy race promises to make for an intriguing spectacle and a
fitting tribute to one of the world's most revered sports car with a long
association with Goodwood, both at the Motor Circuit in period, plus the
Goodwood Revival, with examples racing here since the first event in 1998.
Mercedes-Benz at the Goodwood Revival 2012
Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union racers from the 1930s took to the track for
the first time at the Goodwood Revival between 14 and 16 September, some 75
years after the Silver Arrows first appeared in the UK.
All the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows that appeared at the Goodwood Revival
are original cars -- each with extensive racing history behind them. They
were driven by ex-DTM driver Roland Asch, Le Mans winner Jochen Mass,
five-times DTM champion Bernd Schneider, three-time Formula One World
Champion Sir Jackie Stewart and his son, ex-F3000 racer and team manager
Among the cars that appeared were the W 25 (1934), the W 125 (1937), a W
154 (1939) and a W 165 (1939). Power outputs range from the 254 hp of the
1.5-litre V8 W 165 to the 600 hp achieved by the mighty W 125. All were by
far the most advanced machines of their kind with innovative suspension and
drivetrains meaning they were highly successful and effective racing
