Goodwood Revival 2014 Greatest Hits

Here’s a smattering of videos that the (remarkable) media team at Goodwood have put together to mark the close of this year’s Revival event. I still don’t know how all those cars that spun in the TT race managed to avoid each other.

RAC TT Race:

Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy:

St Mary’s Trophy:

Whitsun Trophy:

Fordwater Trophy:

Richmond Trophy:

Goodwood Trophy:

It’s not quite being there, but I give huge accolades to Goodwood for allowing us to watch the action remotely.

Goodwood Revival Day 2 is Live.

For these live events, even if you join well into the day you can usually drag the YouTube playhead back to the beginning of the stream to see the day’s running in its entirety. So really there’s no reason to do a single other thing today but watch this fantastic feed.

Edit: Updated with the archived video, rather than the livestream. Thanks Goodwood!

Factories at Work: Lamborghini 1968

If you thought that vintage track footage was hard to find, you should try digging up old tours of sportscar workshops. I can’t help imagining that this precious film is the result of an expectant Miura buyer visiting the line to check in on their purchase. Whatever the reasons or motivations for the filming, it’s a wonderful artifact of Lamborghini’s early days.

Listen to that Super-8 projector whirr.

Goodwood Will Livestream This Weekend’s Revival

It’s official. As they did last year, and for this year’s Festival of Speed, The Goodwood team will be livestreaming the Revival festivities this weekend. What a tremendous joy for those of us not making the trek to the track.

Hopefully, they’ll archive the feeds for later viewing as well so we don’t have to rise before the sun here in the States. An embeded feed should be available here on The Chicane as we approach the weekend. Stay tuned.
