The early murk cleared over the Goodwood Motor Circuit, and a mouthwatering array of historic racing cars stormed the track in what promised to be a thrilling Members’ Meeting with a packed race programme.
New races for 2018 included the Caracciola Sportwagenrennen for pre-war sports cars and the Bolster Cup, named after legendary journalist, ‘specials’ builder and ERA racer, John Bolster. A remarkable field of modified and one-off 1920s and ’30s machines were vying for honours. Grand Prix star turned TV pundit David Coulthard made his Members’ Meeting debut at the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz 300SL. The Scot used the event to launch the new IWC Schaffhausen racing team which will spearhead IWC Shaffhausen’s involvement in historic motorsport this season.
