Racing action is underway at the 81st Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport, and we’ve already witnessed several all-time classics. Saturday evening saw an epic three-way battle for the win in Part 1 of the Hailwood Trophy, while we had similar scenes during the opening salvo of Sunday in the Parnell Cup. Here are all the race results from the weekend so far.

Race 1: Hailwood Trophy Part 1

The racing action got off to a perfect start on Saturday afternoon with a three-way battle for victory in Part 1 of the Hailwood Trophy. With an average speed of more than 96mph over the five-lap race it was Phil Atkinson on a Yamaha TZ350G who made his move at the final corner to clinch the win in the final moments.

Race 6: Hailwood Trophy Part 2

A truncated Part 2 of the Hailwood Trophy still managed to fit plenty of action into what became a four-lap race. The trio of Phil Atkinson, Dan Jackson and Glen English once again stormed away from the field to engage in their own private battle for the lead, but it was Atkinson that stamped his authority to take a second victory of the weekend and reign supreme on two wheels at the 81st Members’ Meeting.

Hailwood Trophy: Combined result

Both parts of the Hailwood Trophy were action packed, to the say the least, and it was a deserved combined victory for Phil Atkinson who took overall honours with his Yamaha TZ350G, sealing the win by little more than five seconds ahead of Dan Jackson.

Race 2: S.F. Edge Trophy Part 1

Has there ever been a dull S.F. Edge Trophy race? The first part of the show at the 81st Members’ Meeting certainly provided plenty of entertainment as Julian Majzub and his Sunbeam ‘Indianapolis’ finally got the better of Mark Walker’s Darracq 200hp. The Darracq dominated the two races last year, but struggled to get away from the line. Walker made a heroic recovery to finish in second place, but Majzub had built up too big a lead and came home two seconds ahead to win.

Race 9: S.F. Edge Trophy Part 2

The saga continued in Part 2 of the S.F. Edge Trophy as the Edwardian leviathans returned for another run on Sunday, and again delivered an epic duel for the win. Majzub and Walker were the protagonists once more, although Duncan Pittaway in his monstrous Fiat S76 played quite the cameo as he defended from Walker’s Darracq. Majzub couldn’t quite hold on to make it two wins out of two, though, as Walker made the crucial move to take victory on the final tour.

Race 3: Gordon Spice Trophy

The V8s were dominant in the Gordon Spice Trophy as the Group 1 touring cars took to the Motor Circuit for their 45-minute race under Saturday evening sunset. It was a tight battle between the top five as they remained in close formation throughout, although it was the Boss Mustangs that prevailed ahead of the Camaros. The team of Craig Davies and four-time BTCC champion Ash Sutton took an impressive victory ahead of Timo Bernhard and Fred Shepherd.

Race 14: Gordon Spice Sprint

Could there possibly have been a better way to bring the 81st Members’ Meeting to an end than with the traditional Gordon Spice Sprint? It’s always enormous fun, and this years’ running was no different. The sight of three Minis leading away from the reversed grid was everything we’d hoped for, but unfortunately the overwhelming power of the Boss Mustangs and Camaros behind proved unstoppable. Fred Shepherd in his Mustang Boss 302 took the final race victory of the weekend ahead of James Cottingham in his Camaro.

Race 4: Parnell Cup

Racing action got off to a brilliant start on Sunday morning as the grand prix and voiturette cars of the Parnell Cup put on quite the show. The race was characterised by a sensational scrap for victory between the two Cooper-Bristols of William Nuthall and John Ure, who led for the early laps as he defended sternly in the face of relentless attack. Nuthall did eventually get the move done, and he was just about able to keep Ure behind him, although a final charge around the outside of Woodcote threatened to end both of their races in the dying moments. This is a must-watch.

Race 5: Derek Bell Cup

The Formula 3 racers of the Derek Bell Cup always put on an incredible show, with lively and nimble handling that makes them so well suited to two- and three-wide action through the Goodwood Motor Circuit’s many high-speed sweepers. After a short stoppage, the resumption brought a fantastic battle for the lead that ended in Michael O’Brien pulling off Häkkinen-esque overtake as he and Andrew Hibberd circumnavigated a backmarker in the run up to Woodcote. A thrilling race, with unmissable action from start to finish.

Race 7: Surtees Trophy

The fastest race of the weekend between the sports prototypes of the early 1960s delivered mind blowing speed and untold bravery throughout the field. Alex Brundle in his Ford GT40 showcased all his ability as he carved his way through the field before suffering a mechanical issue. Up front it was John Spiers who took the early lead but a mistake left him having to fight back, as he set a blistering lap in an epic recovery drive. But it was Ben Mitchell in the Chevron who crossed the line one second ahead of Spiers’ McLaren M1B.

Race 8: Ken Miles Cup

The Ken Miles Cup lived up to its billing as a full grid of 30 Ford Mustangs roared away from the line on Sunday afternoon, unleashing unholy amounts of power onto the Goodwood Motor Circuit. The race itself was massively entertaining, too, as several big-name drivers sought to impress their own talents and climb towards the front. It was the team of Michael Whittaker and Andrew Jordan that came out on top, coming home ahead of David Brabham and Alex Brundle. This was a lot of fun, and all run on sustainable fuel.

Race 10: Graham Hill Trophy

The Graham Hill Trophy brought together a wonderfully varied grid of GT racers with Ford Mustangs, AC Cobras, Jaguar E-types, Lotus Elans, Bizzarrinis and more. One of the best looking, and best sounding, grids of the weekend here at the 81st Members’ Meeting brought plenty of action on the track, but it was the power of the TVR Griffiths and AC Cobras that proved difficult to live with as the appropriately named Miles Griffiths took victory ahead of Alex Buncombe.

Race 12: Peter Collins Trophy

These beautifully sleek sportscars can still race hard it turns out, as we found out during a memorable running of the Peter Collins Trophy on Sunday afternoon. There was action up and down the field with plenty of wheel-to-wheel moments, but Richard Wilson in his Maserati 250S proved the class of the field as he took victory ahead of Frederic Wakeman by more than six seconds.

Race 11: Grover-Williams Trophy

A 100th anniversary celebration of the Bugatti Type 35 was always going to be good, wasn’t it? It was truly remarkable to see so many of these stunning cars from a golden era of motorsport back out on the Goodwood Motor Circuit for what was a truly entertaining spectacle. While the racing wasn’t as close as many of the other races on the schedule during the 81st Members’ Meeting, it was still a thoroughly entertaining showcase these striking 1920s grand prix cars. Julian Majzub took the chequered flag first, six seconds ahead of Duncan Pittaway.
