Goodwood Revival to Feature Minis 50th Anniversary

GoodwoodRevival2009_1

Car Magazine has the scoop on the 2009 edition of the Goodwood Revival this September. As you might expect the Mini/MINI brand will be featured prominently. Heres an except:

Mini turned 50 recently, and the celebration of its engineering achievements continues at the Goodwood Revival in September 2009. Huge numbers of pre-1966 Minis are expected on track, bringing their owners and large numbers of enthusiasts with them.

So what are the Mini highlights at Goodwood? Champions and role models such as five-time winner of Le Mans Derek Bell will be racing, as well as Jackie Oliver, Bobby Rahal, Anthony Reid and Brian Redman. You can also hope to see ‘The Rally Professor,’ Rauno Aaltonen, who won the Gallaher 500 touring car races in a Mini Cooper S.

Other Mini legends will include Sir John Whitmore, Alec Poole, Warwick Banks, John Fitzpatrick, Richard Longman and Barrie ‘Whizzo’ Williams. We at CAR are most looking forward to when a full 30-car grid, largely composed of 1275cc Mini Coopers, will compete in a race that is promised to be ‘the most closely fought race in the Revival’s history.’ That’ll be the St Mary’s Trophy saloon car race packed with cars that raced before 1966.
