Goodwood 73rd Member’s Meeting Gallery


The second edition of the revived Goodwood Members Meetings was once again a huge success.

Goodwood followed up the success of 2014's 72nd Member's Meeting with the equally fantastic 73rd Member's Meeting over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of March. Once again the weather played nice and the rain stayed away, although a cold wind required many attendees to wrap up in warm clothing. As with last year's event, the races featured a mixture of cars from the 1920s through to the late 1970s. The feature race was the Gerry Marshall Trophy for 1970s saloon cars — the Sunday race being won by touring car ace Matt Neal and David Clark in the Bastos-liveried Camaro. They held off a late charge from the Rover SD1 driven by Chris Ward and Chris Harris, which started from the back of the grid after problems in the qualifying race.

New for this year was the John Aldington Trophy for early short wheelbase Porsche 911s and 901s. Andrew Jordon dominated the race in the Historika-prepared 911, but behind him there was plenty of action as the tail-happy early 911s slid and drifted around the circuit on their narrow Michelin rubber.

Earlier, the Les Leston Cup played host to 50s and early 60s British sports cars, while the Earl Howe Trophy featured pre-war Bugattis, Bentleys and Alfa Romeos.
