The Freddie March Trophy race at the Goodwood Revival 2016 was held Saturday, September 10 at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England.
Richard Woolmer bested vastly more experienced rivals to win the Freddie March Memorial Trophy race which brought the curtain down on Saturday’s on-track action. The HWM-Cadillac driver was on the bump-stops for much of the race, steering the V8-engined sports car on the throttle as he fended off the attentions of Aston Martin DB3 driver, Rob Hall.
The race wasn’t without incident, the safety car heading trackside shortly before half-distance after Conrad Ullrich beached his Maserati 300S in the gravel trap at Lavant Corner. Racing resumed within five minutes, only for the action to be cut short moments later after Frederic Wakeman’s Jaguar C-type had an unfortunate off in ever more treacherous conditions.
Woolmer looked shell-shocked immediately after the race. “It was like an ice rink out there,” he said. “It feels quite incredible to win. The car was amazing, and … to be honest, I’m lost for words!”
