The race line-up for the Goodwood Revival meeting, which takes place this year on 18-19 September, has been officially announced. Old favourites are back on the programme, some renamed, so the Kinrara Trophy for Pre-‘63 GT cars now becomes the Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy and the Goodwood Trophy, for pre and early post-war Grand Prix cars, will be called the Festival of Britain Trophy. The prestigious RAC TT for pre-‘66 GT cars and the popular St Mary’s Trophy pair of races, run in a pro-am format for Touring cars, both remain on the programme.
A 45-minute race for Minis only, which first took place at the Revival in 2009, and then again at the Members’ Meeting in 2019 as the Betty Richmond Trophy, will come back to the Revival as the John Whitmore Trophy.
The Sportscar races span a swathe of history, from the Brooklands Trophy for pre-war sports cars, to the Sussex Trophy for sports racing cars of the ‘50s and the Freddie March Memorial Trophy for production sports cars of the same era. Finally, there is the Whitsun Trophy for big banger unlimited sportscars up to 1966.
Along with the newly named Festival of Britain Trophy, single seaters will be racing in the Richmond Trophy for front-engined Grand Prix cars up to 1960, and the Glover Trophy for pre-‘66 GP cars. This year’s Chichester Cup is for front-engined Formula Juniors.
The Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy races for Grand Prix motorcycles of the 1960s remains a firm favourite on the programme, with its two-race format to include invited VIPs.
