Holding the headline slot for the Saturday night at the 78th Members’ Meeting was The Pierpoint Cup. A two-driver, 45-minute battle royal between big, bold, brash pre-1966 American V8 saloons. Not wanting to disappoint, the great and the good of touring cars, Formula 1 and sportscar racing took to the track to wrestle these aircraft-carrier sized lumps of metal including Ford Falcon Sprints and Galaxies, Notchback Mustangs, Dodge Darts, Plymouth Barracudas and Mercury Comet Cyclones around the Goodwood circuit. And boy, did they deliver.
