Video: Whitsun Trophy 2016 race highlights

09th September 2016

Monstrous V8 Sports Prototypes, Ford GT40s, and a washed out Goodwood Motor Circuit. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, as it goes, a lot more than did go wrong. All in all the Whitsun Trophy was a relatively calamity free race. The odd spin, and maybe a tyre wall tap, but nothing expensive. All clean otherwise! As for the racing? Absolutely spectacular. The newly-built Lotus 19 recreation stole the glory with some spectacular management of that Oldsmobile V8 power courtesy of wheelman and World Touring Car Champion Rob Huff. Mike Whittaker in the T70 that was giving chase put in a valiant effort, and Tiff in the Lotus-Ford had an absolute ball with that big V8 in the low grip conditions – flailing his hands in the air with jubilation as he crossed the line. Scenes we love to see at Revival!
