HIGHLIGHTS of Goodwood’s new historic motor racing event will be broadcast on Channel 4.

The pair of 25-minute shows will feature the 72nd Members’ Meeting on March 29 and 30, and were produced by Aurora Media.

The shows will be broadcast in Sunday morning slots during April and will be presented by Amanda Stretton with commentary from Martin Haven.

Episode one will be screened on Sunday, April 13, at 6.40am and will feature action from a thrilling part one of the Gerry Marshall Trophy for Group 1 touring cars – including a stirring fightback from Emanuele Pirro’s Capri – plus the Surtees and Moss Trophies and glorious Group B rally and turbocharged Formula 1 cars plus an interview with Sir Stirling Moss and Lord March.

Episode two will be broadcast on Easter Sunday, April 20 at 5.45am and will include action from the world’s largest Bugatti-only race, the Grover-Williams Trophy – plus the enthralling story of racer-turned saboteur William Grover-Williams.
