Goodwood Revival 2013 – Ford GT40 Picture Gallery

The 2013 Goodwood Revival, held 13-15 September at the 2.4-mile Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England, honored the 50th anniversary of the Ford GT40 with a daily parade and the Whitsun Trophy race exclusively reserved for GT40s. The race marked the first time that a dedicated competition has been held for these iconic Ford race cars that captured the 24 Hours of Le Mans four times in the 1960s.

Goodwood claims a key part in the development of the GT40, the car designed to break the hegemony of Ferrari at Le Mans in the 1960s. Lola, the British company entrusted with the project, carried out much of its testing on the Goodwood circuit in 1964. Sir Jackie Stewart, who took part in some high-speed demonstration laps, said, “I’m driving the GT40 that I raced at Sebring in 1966. I qualified it for Le Mans in same year, but unfortunately I had an accident at Spa and was in hospital when the 24-hour race was on so never raced it there. It is still an amazing car.”

In addition to Tim Scott’s Whitsun Trophy gallery, photographer Julien Mahiels also documented the fabulous Ford GT40s at the 2013 Goodwood Revival. We offer Julien’s pictures of the epic gathering, all displayed in the full-width view of Sports Car Digest. To see more from Julien, visit julienmahiels.net.

  1. As far as I’ve ever been able to tell, there is not “bad angle” related to the many versions of the GT 40. They are just so beautiful and at the same time, so menacing. I had the chance to see them run against Ferrari at both Daytona and Sebring, and it was very conflicting. I’ve always been a big Ferrari fan, but those damn Fords were just so strong! These images are really wonderful, too. Aren’t we glad that so many GT 40s are still in racing trim!

  2. One can not consider it a “fraud” in any form. Replica, tribute, clone, recreation, continuation, genuine, original, kit car. They all represent the historic car as it was in as close as possible or even a better form of the one and only originals, all be it defined by interpritation. What better way can one of the most famous race cars in history be complimated. It has been noted that most of the cars pesented were in fact originals. I read that the pecentage was over 90%. Mine is a “Genuine” but not one of the “originals”. so where in the spectrum does that lie?
