The 75th Goodwood Members’ Meeting was a cornucopia for sportscar fans, with races and demonstrations highlighting the rich heritage of that aspect of motor sport. The Weslake Cup featured Sprites and manner of models that were based on this iconic British sportscar, the Scott Brown Trophy honoured the late racing driver with a fantastic grid of 27 Listers, all the colours, all the sizes.
The Graham Hill Trophy was competed for by the legendary 1960 GTs such as Ferrari 250 GTO, E-type Jaguars, Shelby Mustangs and assorted Aston Martins, rounding off the sportscar menu was the Surtees Trophy for the big bangers of 1965-66 such as the GT40 and the Lola T70.
As if that feast was not enough the High Speed Demonstration Runs brought out more endurance classics, highlights being the 3-Litre Sportscar era and a stunning assembly of GT1 Porsches and McLarens.
The Members’ Meeting is not cheap to attend but offers a much more intimate atmosphere that the Revival and The Festival of Speed, almost all who were present were car guys and gals, not necessarily the case with the other events. The event should be on the Bucket List of any motor sport enthusiast.
