Motor Sport stars gather for the 2012 Goodwood Revival.

In just a few week’s time the 2012 Goodwood Revival (14-16 September) will burst into life with an impressive line-up of over 75 star drivers and riders in action at the legendary West Sussex motor circuit.

A host of familiar names and faces from a wide variety of motor sport disciplines are due to be in action at Goodwood, including Formula One stars, rally winners, endurance racing champions, tin top tearaways and top bikers; often competing in the most unlikely of machines.

Touring Car talent will be campaigning 1950s saloon cars hard in the St Mary’s Trophy race, including current Honda BTCC drivers Matt Neal and Gordon Sheddon, along with other BTCC and WTCC legends Rob Huff, John Cleland, Anthony Reid, Stephen Jellay, Alec Poole and Patrick Watts.

These tin top racers will be joined by Scandinavian rallying greats Rauno Aaltonen and John Haugland, plus ex-Grand Prix stars Martin Brundle, Jochen Mass, Derek Bell, Rupert Keegan, Richard Attwood, Tiff Needell, Martin Donnelly, Desire Wilson, Brian Redman, Jackie Oliver, Vern Schuppan and Arturo Merzario, who are all sure to entertain the Revival spectators.

Many of these famous faces will also be racing wheel-to-wheel in more powerful machinery at the Revival, including the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy Celebration race, and the Shelby Cup, which is being held exclusively for competition AC Cobras this year as this brutish Anglo-American sportscar celebrates its half-century.

Expect to also see Red Bull F1 team principal Christian Horner and the team’s Chief Technical Director Adrian Newey in action, along with drivers as diverse as Indy 500 winner Kenny Brack, ASCAR Champion Nicolas Minassian and comedian Rowan Atkinson. Goodwood stalwarts Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, John Surtees and Barrie ‘Whizzo’ Williams will also be in attendance.

Motorcycling heroes will include Isle of Man TT stars Mick Grant, Charlie Williams, Keith Amor, Cameron Donald, Stuart Graham, Rex Butcher, Stan Woods and Cameron Donald, plus Moto GP rider Jeremy McWilliams, British Superbike ace Michael Rutter and Goodwood favourite Wayne Gardner.

    I can remember the first time that I saw Wayne Gardener riding the Moriwaki Kwak, early March meeting at Donington Park, it was so cold he was wearing a red bodywarmer over his leather’s! Here was someone that us road bike riders could relate to, he looked like he was out there mixing it with racebikes on a roadbike, brilliant. Sheene’s Akai Suzuki wasn’t an official factory bike, he actually bought it and ran it himself as a privateer and that leaves one of my own racing heroes, yep, it really is the late, great, Bob Smith, he harried and ran with the best racer’s in the world, all on a shoestring budget, a true gentleman off the track with time for everyone but a total bastard on it! Proper.
