14 BTCC race winners will compete at the Revival from 11-13 September

A total of 14 British Touring Car Championship race winners will compete at the Goodwood Revival from 11-13 September.

The drivers, including four series champions, will take part in historic sports, GT and saloon car races.

Among them will be current BTCC drivers Jason Plato, Matt Neal, Gordon Shedden, Andrew Jordan, Sam Tordoff and three-time world touring car champion Andy Priaulx.

Plato will be racing alongside TV chef James Martin in the St Mary’s Trophy, driving Martin’s 1964 Morris Mini Cooper S, while Honda’s Neal and Shedden will race their co-owned Ford Lotus Cortina.

Jordan, the 2013 BTCC champion, will also be in a Cortina with his father, Mike, with whom he finished second in the St Mary’s Trophy last year in their Austin A40, and Priaulx will drive a BMW 1800 TiSA, with WSR team-mate Tordoff in a Fiat 1500S Abarth.

Former BTCC drivers taking part in the Revival include Jackie Oliver and Darren Turner, as well as Steve Soper and Tiff Needell, who will be in a Cortina and Jaguar Mk2 respectively, while three-time BTCC race winner Tom Kristensen will be behind the wheel of a Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt and Lister-Jaguar Coupe.

They will be joined at the Revival by Jochen Mass, Emanuele Pirro, Derek Bell and Patrick Watts, who will compete variously across the St Mary’s Trophy, RAC Tourist Trophy and Lavant Cup.

When is this on Sky......?

A Fairlane Thunderbolt was meant for drag racing; dropping a whopping-huge 427 V8 (7 litres to the metric-minded) into a mid-sized car. Only 50 of them were made and had so much power that it caused the rear-wheel drive car to suffer torque steer at launch. I didn't know that any were raced more than a 1/4 mile at a time.
