Now that’s what we call racing


It’s almost two weeks now since the Goodwood Revival but the glow has yet to wear off the C&SC team.

The event’s ability to transport its visitors back in time while plunging them into a weekend’s competitive historic racing is surely second to none.

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.
