Restored Race Control building officially opened at Goodwood

| 24 Sep 2013

Goodwood's renovated Race Control building was officially re-opened during the Revival Meeting by Lord March and Sir Stirling Moss.

Credit Suisse Race Control was formally declared open when Moss cut the ribbon and unveiled a plaque that had been hidden by a set of his old racing overalls.

Revival racers and guests were then invited to take advantage of the newly restored building's swish interior and superb viewing platform over the start-finish line.

There was more action on Sunday when Lord March, along with Moss, Alain de Cadenet, Jochen Mass and Credit Suisse's UK head of private banking Ian Dembinski hosted the burying of a time capsule at the building's main entrance.

Lord March, Sir Stirling Moss, Jochen Mass, Emanuele Pirro and Alain de Cadenet all donated motor racing memorabilia to the time capsule. To this were added Credit Suisse rally plates, Classic & Sports Car competition winner Jan de Coster’s superb Goodwood Revival artwork, plus winning drawing entries from pupils at Goodwood’s local March Church of England Primary School.
