Goodwood Revival 2015: Video highlights!
This year has been one of the best for racing? Watch the video replay of the event here
The Goodwood Revival never fails to impress as the perfect celebration for all things motorsport. The 2015 edition of the event continued to raise the bar in terms of fantastic racing, period-themed attractions as well as (almost) perfect weather over the weekend.
We streamed the whole event live right here, and you can now watch highlights from the event, with some of the great battles:
Great things we loved about the 2015 Goodwood Revival
Land Rover Celebration
Nothing and no-one quite symbolises the British Motor Industry quite like Land Rover and glorious Goodwood. Land Rover chose the Revival to celebrate 67 years of production, with a daily parade of over 50 pre-1966 Series models, including 11 pre-production Land Rovers present, taking to the hallowed track in what will be the biggest collection of the vehicles of its kind. Representing more modern times will be the special edition 2,000,000th Defender, prior to its charity auction sale following the event.
Le Mans winners saddle up once again
Topping the star line-up over the weekend was ‘Mr Le Mans’ himself, Tom Kristensen. Kristensen, 48, took a record nine victories at Le Mans between 1997 and 2013, and is a ex-race winner at the Revival. This year he piloted the unique 1963 Lister Coupe in the RAC Tourist Trophy race. He was joined by other Le Mans winners including 1969 winner Jackie Oliver, Andy Wallace, Jochen Mass and Mark Blundell.
BRM splutters back into life
A successful restoration project can bring a smile to even the most stern-faced car enthusiast - none more than that of the 1950 BRM V16 1.5 litre Type 15 Grand Prix that is due to fire back into life at Goodwood. The famous race car was the first of five built, and was famously driven by Reg Parnell and Juan Manuel Fangio. A recent crowd-funding scheme set up by the Beaulieu Motor Museum raised over £50,000 towards the project, with the donations set to pay off this weekend.
Touring Car stars do battle (again)
No less than 14 British Touring Car race winners graced Goodwood this weekend, across a blend of historic sports, GT and saloon car races. The bumper-list included four champions, with Jason Plato, Matt Neal, Gordon Shedden and Andrew Jordan in attendance, while BTCC-returnee and triple World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx also returned.
