Proof (if it were needed) of quite how seriously the drivers take the event can be found in these photos sent to us by reader Howard Lipman.

No people (or classics) were hurt as Tony Smith in his 1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B closes the door on Ian Landy’s ERA B-type R6B, but the drama’s there for all to see.

The pair would finish in 13th and ninth places, respectively, in the Goodwood Trophy.
