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
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.
1939 SS Jaguar starts after 20 years in bits
I only put 1 gallon of petrol in her tank and after an initial few kicks
she refused to start until it dawned on me that I needed to pull out the
petrol reserve tap. The engine has no timing marks and she spits back due
to being far too far advanced. She's also very tappety.
The drive out of the garage was my first experience of driving her and the
street scene was the first time of her being out on the public highway. At
this stage she had a very noisey rear axle and gearbox and no interior
