The Goodwood Trophy race at the 2013 Goodwood Revival was held Saturday, September 14th at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England.
The 2013 Goodwood Trophy race featured Grand Prix, Voiturette and Historic Racing Specials of a type that raced from 1930 to 1950. These sit-up-and-beg single seaters thundered around the Goodwood Circuit, just as they did in the track’s earliest years. In addition to a series of ERA racers, spectators saw an Alfa Romeo Tipo B and 308C take on Maserati 4CM, 6CM, 8CM and 8CTF, plus Alta, Bugatti Type 73, Talbot-Lago Type 26 and Frazer Nash Monopostos.
David Morris emerged victorious in the 20-minute Goodwood Trophy race for Grand Prix and Voiturette cars raced from 1930-1950. The ERA B-Type R11B of Morris had to give best to Paddins Dowling at the start, the California-based Irishman blasting off the line in his similar ERA B-type R10B. Dowling had built up a five-car-length lead by the end of the Lavant Straight, only for Morris to reel him in and take the position at the start of the second tour. Pole-sitter Mark Gillies, meanwhile, never threatened to take a repeat win, retiring Mary Smith’s overheating ERA A-Type R2A at the end of the second lap. Julian Mahzub was also forced to retire his fabulous Alfa Romeo 308C shortly thereafter, having started from the pitlane.
Man of the move in the early laps was GT star Calum Lockie aboard Sean Danaher’s Maserati 8CM, the Scot making up several places in the early laps. At half-distance, he had worked his way up to third place, but he was unable to make up ground on Dowling who was similarly five seconds down on the super-smooth Morris. The top three positions remained static to the end. It was Morris’ first-ever Goodwood Trophy win after several years of trying.
