The new addition follows the mighty success of the all-Mini Betty Richmond Trophy at the 77th Members’ Meeting, a race which saw nearly 60 minis battle for glory through two heats and a final. While the Revival’s will only see a single test for Minis, the two-driver, 45-minute format should guarantee a race that no one should miss.
While the sheer number of top-level drivers will hit the headlines, some of the individual stories inside the race should not be missed. This will be the first time that the Brundles, father and son Martin and Alex, have raced against each other at Goodwood. Former F1 driver and Le Mans winner Martin will be partnering Nick Paddy in his 1962 Cooper S, while current European Le Mans Series racer Alex is set to race with Giles Page in the latter’s ’65 car. Alex is no stranger to racing a Mini at Goodwood, having piloted one in the St. Mary’s Trophy at Goodwood SpeedWeek presented by Mastercard in 2020. Martin will also be up against his Sky F1 colleague, and fellow ex-F1 driver, Karun Chandhok.
Other highlights include a vast number of Le Mans legends, including 2017 and ’20 winner, and former Torro Rosso F1 driver, Brendon Hartley, five-time winner Emanuele Pirro and triple winner, and Goodwood Hill outright record holder, Romain Dumas, fresh from racing at Le Mans with Glickenhaus.
