We all know by now that Goodwood , in England, is a real paradise for motor lovers and classics, and not because Rolls-Royce manufactures their cars there, but for the three inescapable appointments of the year in the garden of Lord March : The Festival of Speed , the Revival and the Member’s Meeting. The level of participating vehicles, drivers and fans is really impressive.
During the Goodwood 75th Members’ Meeting held last weekend, a new category was launched , named the Weslake Cup in honor of Harry Weslake, a builder and engine builder who designed elements for almost the entire British automotive industry. The cup is made up of sports cars of the late fifties and sixties , such as the Lenham GT, Austin Healey, MG Midget or WSM, series A.
The new category did not disappoint, leaving a great race but, above all, an epic bump between two riders, who brought out the essence of the competition. Richard Woolmer in his Austin Healey Sebring Yellow Sprite and James Colburn in his green Lenham Sprite GT got a lot of battle during the race. Do not miss the video, because it has no waste.
