One of the most popular feature events of the annual Goodwood Revival programme has always been the Glover Trophy race for Formula 1 cars. It caters for the ‘Swiss-watch’ 1.5-litre F1 cars of 1961-65, the pinnacle years of the Goodwood Motor Circuit’s frontline career and the race which saw Stirling Moss, Graham Hill, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Lotus and BRM truly excel upon the Sussex circuit.
