Onboard for the Fordwater Trophy at Goodwood Revival 2012

From green flag to checkers (and more), Ben Adams lets us ride shotgun for the entirety of the Fordwater Trophy race as he pilots a lovely little Turner-Ford MKII. Ben started in 9th and finished 7th. After a very good start, he spent the bulk of the race between the leading pack and the much larger group a ways behind. I’m glad that he chose to let us see the unfiltered video, rather than editing out the warmup lap and gridding up. It lets us really be a part of the whole experience. This is as close as most of us are likely to get to a seat for the Revival, and I send a hearty thanks to Ben for letting us tag along.

    Very cool. A lot of fun. Being able to see the rev counter and hear the engine note is also part of the fun. I also like seeing the marshals since I am one.

    I helped a friend build a Turner Ford for F Production racing in Monterey, Ca, in the mid 1970’s.

    He does a good job of keeping the engine in the power band (watch the tach) as he drives – well done!
