Goodwood Revival 2016 – Chichester Cup Report

The Chichester Cup race at the Goodwood Revival 2016 was held Sunday, September 11 at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England.

Lola ace Andrew Hibberd took a brilliantly-judged win in the Chichester Cup race which kicked off Sunday morning’s track action at the 2016 Goodwood Revival Meeting. Pole-sitter Stuart Roach had appeared set for victory aboard his Alexis Mk2, only to retire from the lead with less than a minute to run in the 20-minute race.

The field comprised 30 drivers in 21 different makes of car, with 2012 winner Joe Colasacco claiming second place in the dying moments aboard his Stanguellini-Fiat. The American impressed mightily as he worked his way up from his seventh place grid slot. Chris Drake was third in his Terrier Mk4, battle having raged over second and third place for much of the race.
