Thirteen drivers who have conquered the the world's greatest endurance race will take to the Goodwood Motor Circuit next weekend across the Revival race card.


Boasting an impressive 29 victories at the Circuit de la Sarthe, winners from every current class will turn back the clock in the racing cars of yesteryear in Sportscar, touring car and single seater races around 2.3-miles of West Sussex's finest tarmac.

Leading the pack with six wins at Le Mans – including five overall victories – is Emanuele Pirro, who will use every ounce of his endurance racing prowess in search for glory in both the Kinrara Trophy and the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration – the two showpiece two-driver GT races of the weekend.

Pirro will go wheel-to-wheel with fellow Le Mans winners in the TT, including five-time winner Derek Bell, who will jump into the driving seat of a Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray while also demoing Dan Gurney’s Eagle-Weslake TG1 across the weekend.


The 2018 Revival will see the debut of three-time Le Mans winner Andre Lotterer, who will be in action in and AC Cobra in the TT, as well as plying his trade in the St Mary’s Trophy presented by Motul, driving an Alfa Romeo GTA. Fellow former Porsche racer and Audi Le Mans winner Romain Dumas will return to Goodwood to race in both the TT and St Mary's Trophy after his triumphant run at the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard in July.

Richard Bradley, who took the spoils in LMP2 in 2015, will also make his Revival debut, swapping the power of Le Mans prototypes for the slight and nimble Formula Juniors in the Chichester Cup.

Three of 2017’s GTE class winners will be racing in 2018, with GTE Am victor Rob Smith behind the wheel of a BMW 1800 TiSA in the St Mary’s Trophy, while Aston Martin team-mates, and GTE Pro winners, Jonny Adam and Darren Turner will be in a Mini Cooper and a BMW TiSA respectively.


Turner will be one of the busiest drivers of the weekend, also driving an AC Cobra in the TT, an Aston Martin DB2 in the Fordwater Trophy and a Hamill-Chevrolet SR3 in the Whitsun Trophy.

Richard Attwood, Mark Blundell, Jochen Mass, Jackie Oliver and Brian Redman round off the list of Le Mans winners, in what is sure to be another weekend of top level racing, with some of the best drivers to ever grace an International racing paddock.
