Doug Nye: Retracing the Targa Florio

Back in the late 1940s when motor racing began at our Motor Circuit, races were run very much upon along Brooklands lines. This was largely because the average British racing car, and I doubt there were more than 30-40 purebred genuine Racing Cars in the entire country at the time, was really rather unreliable. Therefore a 3-lap or 5-lap race was not unusual at Goodwood. A feature race could be 12-laps. Glory be, a 15-lap race would be something really quite significant.
