Second Place in the St. Mary’s Trophy at Goodwood Revival 2019!

John Cleland and Charles Rainford finished the weekend in second place overall in the St. Mary’s Trophy at Goodwood Revival 2019! Our 1958 Volvo PV544 has undergone a lot of development this year, all of which paid off this weekend. Both John and Charles drove the socks off the car to finish 2nd overall at the end of the weekend. Thanks again to all at Goodwood who work so hard to put on the event and all the other competitors who worked so hard to put on such a great race.

Goodwood Revival 2017

As always Lord March hosted another magnificent, albeit wet and windy, Revival. This year we were back with our fearsome Nash Metropolitan and Mike Haigh’s vociferous Ford Falcon. We had legends John Cleland and Tiff Needell sharing the driving duties respectively. Qualifying was rather wet but we lucked out with dry weather for our races on Saturday and Sunday. Both cars ran perfectly and performed well against a very quick grid. Shaun Rainford had a 20 lap battle with Alistair Dyson’s Ford Zephyr and Nick Maton’s MG Magnette bringing the Nash home in 15th from 20th on the grid. Mike put in a blinding drive on Sunday dragging the Falcon from 18th up to 8th! The Falcon finished the weekend in 12th on aggregate with the Metropolitan in 14th. All in all another splendid weekend at Goodwood. Roll on Members Meeting.

BTCC legend John Cleland confirmed for Metropolitan drive at Goodwood Revival

We can confirm that the British Touring Car legend John Cleland will be sharing the drive with Shaun Rainford in the Nash Metropolitan at this years Goodwood Revival. John first drove the car on it’s debut at the 2012 Goodwood Revival in the rain. His mastery of the slippery conditions can be seen in the video below. Since that time the car has been through some development and is a lot more competitive. We cant wait to see what John can do this year.
