Terrier-like Minis being harried through the chicane by hulking Ford Falcons and Galaxies are a defining image of the Goodwood Revival. Oh sure, the multi-million pound exotica and superstar drivers in the TT Celebration arguably qualify as the Blue Riband race of the weekend. And at every turn you’ll see an iconic car or legendary driver. But the hard-fought St Mary’s Trophy for pre-1966 touring cars reliably delivers on the most thrilling racing of the three-day event, as the door-to-door battle between Richard Meaden’s Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the Austin A40 of Mike Jordan in the second round ably demonstrated this year.

He’s still some way off that Countach though.
