1 comment:


Final day at the greatest historic racing event on the planet the Goodwood Revival.   See it all live or wait for the the replay after the event has ended.



REVIVAL BROADCAST SCHEDULE

ALL TIMES ARE BST (GMT +1HR) AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.


0915 Maserati 250F demonstration
No fewer than 16 of the 29 Maserati 250Fs built are at Revival to celebrate the car’s 60th anniversary. The very first and very last built will part of this spectacular display, along with some other historically significant examples such as that raced by Juan Manuel Fangio at the Nurburgring. If you enjoy this, don’t miss them racing in the Richmond Trophy at 1050.
1000 Fordwater Trophy
The Fordwater Trophy is for production-based sports and GT cars from 1960 to 1966. Watch specialist British cars from the likes of Elva, Tornado and Rochdale take on the likes of Porsche, Ferrari and Sunbeam.
1050 Richmond Trophy
There are 11 Maserati 250Fs on the entry list for the Richmond Trophy, including a very rare V12, making this unmissable viewing. And that’s before you factor in the rest of the field packed with GP cars from 1954 to 1960. That includes three Scarab-Offenhausers which have never before been on a grid together.
1130 Settrington Cup – Race 2
A slower pace, but no less rivalry, in the Settrington Cup. The four to 10-year olds in Austin J40 pedal cars always generate a close finish – and the 2014 fixtures promise to be no different.
1150 Barry Sheene Memorial Cup – Race 2
Race two for the two-rider Barry Sheene Memorial will pick from where race one left off. See the likes of Troy Corser, Steve Plater, Michael Rutter and Steve Parrish wrestle Nortons, JABSs, BMWs and others around the historic circuit.
1240 St Mary’s Trophy – Race 2
The concluding St Mary’s Trophy race, the two-driver fixture for saloon cars between 1960 and 1969. Always a crowd favourite, expect plenty of close action.
1400 Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration
As with Saturday’s TT, today’s race for 1960 to 1964 GT cars will feature lots of well-known names. Alain de Cadenet will be in a Ferrari 250 GTO/64, with other Ferrari competition coming from Derek Bell and Anthony Reid, both in 250 GT SWB/Cs. Jaguar E-types are well represented, too, with Chris Harris, Rob Huff and Emanuele Pirro all in E-types.
1520 Jackie Stewart Tribute demonstration
Sir Jackie Stewart was first talent-spotted at Goodwood back in 1964 and, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that career break, there will be a daily parade. Cars include the very 1964 Cooper-BMC that he was driving when Goodwood circuit manager Robin Mackay saw him driving will feature, as will the Marcos Xylon GT in which Jackie took his first race win. His three F1 championship wins will be represented by a 1969 Matra-Cosworth MS80 and a Tyrrell-Cosworth 006. In all, there are 27 cars on the entry list – each with a JYS story to tell.
Item 9 Title
1600 Glover Trophy
Lightweight high-revving 1.5-litre F1 and Tasman cars from 1961 to 1965 populate the Glover Trophy grid. Cars to look out for include the Brabham-Climax BT3 – Brabham’s first grand prix car – and the Lotus-Climax 25 in which Jim Clark won the world championship in 1963. That’s entered by Clive Chapman’s Classic Team Lotus operation.
1640 Jaguar D-type demonstration
Did you miss the Lavant Cup, the Jaguar D-type single-make race earlier? Now’s your chance to see 27 D-types, plus five XKSSs, parade around the circuit at a more gentle pace. The Lavant Cup runs again tomorrow at 1640 where you can see them compete in anger again.
1720 Freddie March Memorial Trophy
A second chance to see the Freddie March Memorial Trophy action, the first race having been on Friday. As well as the popular Jaguars, Aston Martins and Frazer Nashes, look out for the HWM-Jaguar, Lagonda V12 Le Mans, Gordini Type 23S and the Cunningham C4R

Formula E first race has its first huge crash.

4 comments:

The first ever fully "e" Grand Prix was won in dramatic fashion by Lucas Di Grassi in the Audi Sport Abt car after a last lap bonehead maneuver by then leader Nicholas Prost who blatantly turned in on a surging Nick Heidfeld.  The resulting collision sent the German tumbling and crashing into one of the Beijing city course's walls.

Kudos to FIA and Dallara for enforcing the highest of safety standards because "Quick Nick" was not injured in what was a very scary crash.   I wish the same could be said about the course which has unacceptable bumps and launch ramp curbs.

Judging from the slowness of the FIA Formula E web site, interest across the globe must be high despite widespread skepticism in electric car racing.

1045 Chichester Cup – Race 2
Formula Junior is the arena in which many Grand Prix drivers of the late 1960s learnt their trade. These lightweight, high-revving machines always make a spectacle, the Chichester Cup being exclusively Ford powered and featuring cars built from 1960 to 1964.
1140 Settrington Cup – Race 1

1155 Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration – Qualifying
The TT is a two-driver race for closed cockpit GT cars from 1960 to 1964. Expect to see fierce competition from pros in AC Cobras – their number includes Giedo van der Garde, Nic Minassian, Darren Turner, Jochen Mass and Andrew Jordan. Jordan won’t be the only BTCC driver – expect rivalry from Jason Plato (Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray), Matt Neal (Sunbeam Lister Tiger), Anthony Reid (Ferrari 250 GT SWB/C) and Rob Huff (Jaguar E-type FHC).
1255 St Mary’s Trophy – Race 1
By the time the two-driver teams get to the first St Mary’s Trophy race, rivalries will be well-established. With more BTCC drivers than ever, it’s bound to be highly competitive. Race two is at 1240 tomorrow.
1350 Jackie Stewart Tribute demonstration
Sir Jackie Stewart was first talent-spotted at Goodwood back in 1964 and, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that career break, there will be a daily parade.

1500 Shelby Cup
A two-driver race for small-block V8 powered saloon cars promises plenty of action – and noise! As you’d expect, there are plenty of Ford Mustangs on the grid. Well-known drivers include current and former F1 drivers Max Chilton and Rupert Keegan, BTCC’s Gordon Shedden, Le Mans racer Jochen Mass. Henry Mann, son of Alan Mann, is also in a Mustang. Keeping them honest will be a variety of other small-block engined machinery: Ford Falcons driven by Henri Pescarolo and Rowan Atkinson respectively, a Studebaker Lark Daytona driven by Matt Neal and a Mercury Comet Cyclone driven by Emanuele Pirro.
1600 Maserati 250F demonstration
No fewer than 16 of the 29 Maserati 250Fs built are at Revival to celebrate the car’s 60th anniversary.

1640 Lavant Cup
A rare chance to see the stunning spectacle of a Jaguar D-type single make race. With 32 cars on the entry list – including five XKSSs – it’s a spectacle not to miss. Cars to look out for include the very first prototype (OVC 501) and the 1955 Le Mans winning car (XKD 505).
1730 Whitsun Trophy
‘Unlimited sports prototypes’ is a phrase to get the pulse racing – and this is the race in which to see Ford GT40s, McLaren M1Bs and Lola T70s going wheel to wheel. McLaren’s Chris Goodwin will be at the wheel of an M1B, and there will also be a rare chance to see the McKee-Chevrolet Mahrya in action.

Goodwood Revival Live Stream Day 1

Goodwood, the temple of oversteer, where gentlemen fearlessly field their sometimes priceless cars in all out battles for the sport of it... because they can.

It's glorious. it's live!

Friday will be mostly qualifying with some notable demonstration runs : a 700 hp BRM H16 will attempt to complete more than a lap without technical issues,  something rarely accomplished in period and there will be tributes to Jackie Stewart, John Surtees and to the Jaguar D-Type.

This is Formula E

1 comment:


Busy week end of Motosport with the debut of Formula E on Saturday.  

I'm sure many will be as ambivalent and skeptical as we are at Axis about Formula E,

The rollout has not been easy and some demonstrations have been, to be kind, less than spectacular.  

It was probably a good PR move to choose Beijing, on of the world's most polluted cities as the first venue and indeed    in this latest clip promoting UK's ITV's broadcast  there is much talk about "green".   we're just not totally sure which green they are referring to.

Running on tight city tracks will help mask any speed deficiency and the gimmicky fan voted speed boost is presumably designed to attract the TV talent show audience.

But, we'll take a look.  US Broadcast live on Fox Sports 1 at 3:30 pm

Experience the whole Italian Grand Prix from inside the cars in 30 minutes.

You got to love that 8th to 1st gear sequence for the first chicane...
