Last weekend we took the Metropolitan down to Goodwood to stretch it’s legs before the 73rd Members Meeting and for a small feature on the GRRC website. You can read the feature here.
Mike Haigh and his fabulous Ford Falcon will be returning to Goodwood this spring at the GRRC 73rd Members Meeting. They will be taking part in the Sopwith Cup for pre-1960 saloon cars along side our Nash Metropolitan. We’ve got a bit of development work to do this winter and hope to be out testing early in the new year.
Dave Griffith’s has received an invitation to the GRRC 73rd Members Meeting with his Triumph TR4. He will be competing for the Les Leston Trophy for 1960’s production sports cars. The TR4 is currently undergoing a winter refresh and will make its Goodwood debut with a new livery. Dave wants the car to look right as well as go fast.
Ian Burford’s Austin-Healey Sprite “Lumbertubs” has at last received an invite to race at Goodwood. Originally built in the early 1960’s the car has been campaigned for many years in many different specifications. Ian Burford has owned the car now for the last 3 years and campaigned it extensively. He will now be looking forward to driving the car in the Les Leston Trophy race at Goodwood’s 73rd Members Meeting.
