A galaxy of motor racing aces from the modern era are set to flood the classic grids at this year's Goodwood Revival, with the most surprising addition being Marussia Formula One driver Max Chilton – the last current Formula One driver to race at the Revival was Vitantonio Liuzzi in 2005.
The British racer is currently contesting his second World Championship in the series and has been announced as the latest driver to pilot American iron in a special race to commemorate 60 years since the introduction of the small-block V8. Chilton will also be helping to celebrate 50 years of the Ford Mustang, by sharing the driving duties in a 1965 Pony car with Richard Dutton, boss of Fortec Motorsport.
Former British Touring Car Champions Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden will also be taking, driving a Studebaker Lark 500 and a Mustang, respectively. Rowan Atkinson will be driving a 1964 Ford Falcon.
A 1965 Plymouth Barracuda will be driven by reigning BTCC champion Andrew Jordan, while his father Mike, who is also a BTCC winner, will share Andy Yool's Mustang.
Revival regulars Anthony Reid and Steve Soper are welcome additions to the grid; Reid will be in a Dodge Dart, while Soper will share a Mustang with Patrick Watts.
Five-time Le Mans-winner and Revival favourite Emanuele Pirro will be sharing Roger Wills' Mercury Comet Cyclone.
Mat Jackson, also immensely successful in the BTCC, will be taking charge of Henry Mann's Mustang, in the famous red and gold livery of Alan Mann Racing.
