Wonderful car, great driver, superb racing: what a combination it was when Derek Hill, the Shelby Daytona Coupe and the Goodwood Revival all came together in September. So no further excuse needed to show for the first time our exclusive interview with Derek, conducted in the paddock during Revival testing (and in warm sunshine – ah, remember that?).
Derek won the Freddie March Cup at the 2006 Revival and says that Goodwood is one of his favourite places to race. So as he tells us, he was pleased to come back in 2012 with the Daytona Coupe that he previously drove with his father Phil. We caught up with him while he was testing for the Shelby Cup, a race in which he unfortunately failed to finish. That’s motor racing.
