Lockie edges out Gillies for Goodwood Trophy win

Former British GT Champion Callum Lockie claimed repeat Goodwood Trophy honours this afternoon to go with his 2016 triumph. The Scotsman guided Sean Danaher’s nimble Maserati 6CM to win the 20-minute race for Grand Prix and Voiturette cars built and raced between 1930 and ’51. Five-time winner Mark Gillies didn’t make it easy for him, however, and the ERA man led at various points, and only 0.4sec blanketed the top two as the chequered flag descended. Tom Dark had featured during the early laps in his Bugatti T73C, only to lose pace in the final few laps. Gareth Burnett avoided a late scare when lapping an errant backmarker to take the final podium spot in David Baldock’s two-litre Alta.
