The Goodwood Revival 2011 will include a homage to Lord March’s grandfather, the 9th Duke of Richmond, who took a historic win for the Works MG racing team 80 years ago in the famous 1931 Double Twelve race at Brooklands.
The 9th Duke – better known as Freddie March – was an accomplished racing driver, taking many victories for both the MG and Austin Works teams at Brooklands in the 1930s, before establishing the celebrated Goodwood Motor Circuit in 1948.
Goodwood will mark the 80th anniversary of Freddie March’s important 1931 race win at the Revival with an authentic recreation of the MG team’s Brooklands paddock, including a line-up of supercharged racing MGs from the early 1930s.
The Goodwood Revival 2011 will take place 16-18 September at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England. In addition to Freddie March, the Revival will also spotlight the Jaguar E-Type with a spectacular one-make race.
