Close Sunday Racing at Goodwood Members' Meeting

Sunday at the 77th Goodwood Members’ Meeting saw the usual wide range of cars both racing and doing demonstration runs, the racing unusually close with five of the ten car races having the lead pair cross the finish line less than a second apart - SF Edge Trophy for the oldest cars present seeing first and second split by less than two hundredths of a second!

Fastest race lap of the weekend was set by Gurney Cup winner Cameron Jackson in his Crossle-Oldsmobile, Nick Padmore’s outright mark of 1m18s going unchallenged all weekend.
