Goodwood Revival 2014 race highlights: Goodwood Trophy

Watch pre-1951 Grand Prix cars battling it out in the Goodwood Trophy at the 2014 Goodwood Revival.

Mark Gillies once again took the Goodwood Trophy – his fourth victory in the event. The car, the ex-Raymond Mays, factory ERA R3A may have recently changed ownership and is now in the possession of Dick Skipworth, but it made no difference to the result. For the first five laps an often sideways Gillies was engaged in a battle with James Baxter in ERA R4D who used his hillclimbing skills to lead the field off the line.

The pair of 2-litre ERAs were challenged by former British GT champion Calum Lockie, combating the smaller engine of his Maserati 6CM with determined driving. The battle was shut down when an accident brought out the safety car with Gillies pulling away after the restart. Lockie moved into second with an unlucky Baxter retiring not long before the finish.
