Brilliant racing going on now in the Graham Hill Trophy (for sports cars such as Ferraris. AC Cobras, TVR's E Types etc)
Pirro driving superbly.

That race got wayyy too hairy. Craig Davies and Steve Soper went way off into the fields challenging each other for the lead (in an intense battle). The Mustangs are dented on every side. And now we have a red flag and a very smashed up Ford Galaxy (or Falcon?) in the tyres.

Last race of the day about to start.... John Surtees trophy for GT40's Lolas etc. Today is the 59th anniversary of his race debut, also at Goodwood.

Really painful to see them crashing like that in the last race of the weekend.

Thats ok I was in full screen most of the time too.

Yeah I hate to see cars that have survived so long getting trashed. Fortunately nothing today that cant be repaired .

Re-live some of the weekend's fastest racing as the thundering V8s of pre-1966 sport's racing prototypes took to the tarmac in honour of the late John Surtees, the inaugural Can-Am champion.

Managed to catch only one of the junior formula races and the one with the field full of Lister Jaguars this weekend. Such a pleasure watching the historic races at this place. The racers go flat out so you really get a taste of what it was like.
