Goodwood Revival 2014 – Sussex Trophy Report and Photos

The Sussex Trophy race at the Goodwood Revival 2014 was held Friday, September 12th at the 2.4-mile, 7-turn Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England. A sell-out crowd watched in awe as 30 stunning 1950s sports racing prototypes raced into dusk in the first race of the weekend.

The 2014 Sussex Trophy race featured World Championship sports cars and production sports racing cars from 1955 to 1960. The likes of the Aston Martin DBR1, Ferrari 246S Dino and 860 Monza, Lotus 15, Lister Kobbly and Costin and Maserati 300S and Birdcage models were all perfectly suited to perform around fast, sweeping curves found at Goodwood. For the first time the Sussex Trophy was a two-driver race this year and it took place on the Friday evening of the Revival, finishing at dusk.

Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen claimed victory in their Lister-Jaguar ‘Knobbly’, resisting Bobby Verdon-Roe’s charge from seventh to the runner-up spot in the second half of the hour-long race in his Ferrari 246S Dino, which had started from pole position. The Chevrolet-powered Lister Knobbly of McCaig and Smith rounded out the podium.

  1. I am a past owner of the Ferrari 860 Monza {S/N 0604M} car #17 in several of your photos. I bought it in 1959
    and sold it in 1965. I then mostly lost track of it till 1994, when a mutual friend {Pete Lovely} put me in touch
    with Jean Sage, its then-owner. Jean and I began a correspondence which culminated in his inviting me to
    Spa for a Historics race to meet him and see the car. I did go, and it remains a highlight experience of my
    85 years. What Jean had done was spectacular; the car was done just right and his hospitality to me and
    my guest was memorable. To my intense regret, Jean died soon after of cancer of the thymus.

    As you no doubt know, the factory sent three 860s to Sebring in 1956 {0602, 0604, 0606}. 0604M was the
    winning car, driven by Fangio/Castelloti. I am curious about the other two cars; one blew its engine in the
    race {I think}.

    Jean and I disagreed about one thing in his restoration: he had chrome-plated the dash, while the dash
    was red crinkle when I owned it. I’m certain that was original, and in a night race I think a chrome dash
    would be the last thing you’d want.

    Thanks for the memories, and for your attention.

    1. Hi Charlie – many thanks for your fascinating recollections, which I passed on to 0604’s owner. He’d be interested to hear more of your memories of the car. If you get a chance, drop me a line to [email protected] and I’ll get you guys talking. Regards, Tim
