I rather think it's more a matter of driver error, I'm afraid the Elite didn't have any rear view mirrors, Gary Pearson is a very quick and experienced pilot and he naturally assumed that the slower cars would observe some caution and awareness in such a mixed field. Hate to see such beautiful cars damaged in this way.

I was taught it was the responsibility of the overtaking car/faster driver to see his way by in an orderly manner . . . . Slower cars/drivers not to deviate from their line or do anything eratic.

Goodwood has its own rules, maybe you read their script?

from the luxury of the computer it was an unnecessarily risky overtake on the most dangerous part of the circuit , it is the responsibility of the faster driver especially when lapping slower drivers to do it in the safest way possible. David Clark is a very experienced driver as is Gary Pearson they should of known better

The Elites in the race were driven by experienced drivers and best that can be said was GP was being very optimistic.
The two Elites were properly historic and the Michael Birch/Richard Bradley car ran three TT’s at Goodwood in period .
I can’t remember how many E types won a TT at Goodwood especially with rag top?
It’s Goodwood and the SWB had just returned from total rebuild at Ferrari
That would **** even that owner off!!

Haven't watched any of it, so can't comment but wasn't that E Type shared by Young Master March?

It doesn't pay the repair bills, but at least the authorities saw it the same way most of us did. Better than having some fabricated crap published in a green book about your car breaking.

Obviously I misinterpreted the incident, I only watched the live racing and didn't bother to look at a rerun but I was originally under the impression that the Elite changed its line oblivious to the pursuing E type. No suggestion of any lack of driving skills from the Elite driver more a question of lack of overtaking signals from the marshals post but I could be wrong!

A welcome Sunday off here, spent at Goodwood without having to get cold! Enjoyed St Mary's but the SF Edge Trophy was something else. Wonderful! Does Mark Walker need a riding mechanic?

I loved the fact that the BOSS 302 Mustang won the two Gerry Marshall Trophy races when these cars never actually raced in that era or "Group 1+" part of the BSCC. This makes all of the other owners and cars look stupid. Why bother build or run a Group 1+ car when it's something that wasn't there that outpaces everyone?
