The 20th anniversary of the Goodwood Revival will play host to what is billed as the most expensive car race ever held.
Thirty pre-1963 GT cars, with a combined value of up to $350 million will assemble on the Goodwood Motor Circuit for the Kinrara Trophy on the evening of Friday, September 7.
Once the flag drops, they will race for 60 minutes — through sunset and into dusk.
A total of 15 races are scheduled over the weekend but the Kinrara Trophy is a favourite, with the field is restricted to closed-cockpit GT cars, with an engine size of 3.0 litres or more — of a type that raced before 1963.
There will be 10 Ferrari 250 GT SWBs on the grid, including the unique ‘Breadvan’, alongside a pair of GTOs, including a very rare 330 GTO.
They will compete against four Aston Martin DB4 GTs and a phalanx of Jaguar E-types, plus two AC Cobras and a Maserati 3500 GT.
In addition to being possibly the most valuable collection of cars ever raced together, the Kinrara Trophy is one of the most awe-inspiring spectacles in motorsport.
The sound of Ferrari V12s, Aston Martin and Jaguar straight-sixes, and Cobra V8s, combined with the sight of some of the 20 the century’s most stylish and iconic cars battling wheel-to-wheel into the dusk — is a sight to behold.
