Goodwood Revival 2016 – Lavant Cup Report

The Lavant Cup race at the Goodwood Revival 2016 was held Saturday, September 10 at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, England.

Malcom Harrison claimed honours in the 20-minute Lavant Cup race for drum-braked BMW and Bristol-engined sports cars after taking the lead with barely a minute to spare. The Cooper T25 man had been headed by Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica driver Martin Hunt for much of the twenty-minute race, only for a minor clash in the run to Woodcote on the penultimate lap to end his day. He came back from a lurid slide to claim second place. Pole-sitter Patrick Blakeney-Edwards recovered from a fluffed start to finish third in his Frazer Nash Mille Miglia.

Harrison said, “Martin drove brilliantly in front. I was hanging onto his shirttails for most of the race but then the opportunity arose to get past. There was only a small kiss between the two cars.”

Hunt agreed: “He was a very generous driver behind me, and it was only a little nudge. It was incredibly slippery out there.”
