Market Finds – Goodwood Members’ Meeting heroes


The Goodwood Members’ Meeting is one of our favourite annual events. With the 74th edition on the horizon, we’ve selected some past (and future?) heroes that you can buy right now from the Classic Driver Market…

The naked Iso A3C

In our game, there few sights more memorable than a ‘naked’ Bizzarrini – as you’ll agree if you attended any of the historic Goodwood meetings in recent years. Rebuilt to Iso A3C specification,this beastly Bizza has been competitive in the most prestigious events (including the TT and Graham Hill Trophy), locking horns with Cobras, 250 SWBs and Lightweight E-types. It’s already been entered at this year’s Members' Meeting, so this is your rather attractive ticket to top-tier historic racing.

The lap-record-holding Lola T70 Spyder

Considering the motoring royalty – both man and machine – that has graced the Goodwood circuit, holding the fastest recorded lap there is nothing to be sniffed at (although it’s a little more complicated than that, click here for an explanation and lap video). This ex-Team Surtees Lola T70 Spyder can claim that title, set in the process of winning the Bruce McLaren Trophy at last year’s Meeting.

The fastest Porsche 901 of them all

One of the crowd’s favourite races at last year’s meeting was the John Adlington Trophy, which saw a grid’s-worth of early 2-litre Porsche 911s squirreling around at the limit of traction (and occasionally beyond). The clear winner by some 12 seconds was this 901 – and although there is no such race at the Meeting this year, an entry to the Le Mans Classic is included with the purchase.

The Ex-Scuderia Montjuich Ferrari 512M

If you want to rub shoulders with your heroes, then the Members’ Meeting is the place to go. Should you want to take things further and step into their driving shoes, then this Ferrari 512M is the ticket. It has been entered into the Group 5 demonstration, in which Derek Bell will pilot another, equally yellow 512M – meaning you can become a ringer for ‘Dinger’ with a machine he piloted in period.

Join a Works Ford Le Mans driver in this 1965 Ford GT40

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ll know that Ford is returning to Le Mans this year with the new GT, 50 years after its momentous 1-2-3 victory. Marino Franchitti, one of Ford’s newly announced Works drivers, will incidentally drive this GT40 at the 74th Members’ Meeting, and you could join him. With a chassis and body by Superformance, a brand new 289 V8 built to the latest specification and fresh FIA HTP papers, the car comes complete with an invitation to compete at Goodwood in the Alan Mann Trophy, a race solely for Ford GT40s.
