Videos: Who mowed Goodwood's grass best?

Over the Goodwood Revival weekend, there were many attempts to trim the neatly striped grass on the circuit’s infield and outfield areas. Some were more effective than others, so we’ve compiled a few different clips here to compare the varying styles.

Scroll down and you’ll firstly see Clive Ling sliding onto the green stuff with the Norton Manx 500 he was sharing with Alex Sinclair in the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy race. He was straight back on his feet, but clearly frustrated by the incident – particularly as the spill wasn’t his fault.

Below that is the evidence that Chris Lillingston-Price didn’t always keep his Morris Mini Cooper S on track in part two of the St Mary’s Trophy race. The excitable little Mini became marginally airborne as it took its own line across the grass.

It’s probably the video above, though, that reveals the ‘winner’. Tom Bailey carried enough speed – sideways and backwards – in his Cooper-Maserati that he ended up in the long crops before he brought all four wheels back under control. In case you’re wondering, he did make it back on to the tarmac to continue in the Richmond and Gordon Trophies race.
