Goodwood Revival preview and the latest news ...

Tomorrow, the annual Goodwood Revival will kick off with the first of its three days of non-stop action. At this year's edition of the time-warp event among the celebrations will be the 1957 Formula 1 season. It was the first year that a British car won its home Grand Prix, kicking off many years of F1 dominance by the Brits. This win was scored by Stirling Moss in a Vanwall and this achievement will be marked with the presences of this Vanwall Grand Prix. It is not the actual winning car but this chassis did won five races in 1957 and 1958 making it the most successful of all Vanwalls. Beautifully preserved, chassis VW11 will be demonstrated during all three days. We will also be on hand as always and you will receive our in-depth coverage with action-packed gallery shortly after the weekend.
Over the weekend exciting new projects were announced. The first was this GT, which is an attempt to revive the ATS brand. It combines styling inspired by the original ATS 2500 GT with thoroughly modern underpinnings and a twin-turbo V8 that is good for at least 650 bhp.
Offering similar performance but in altogether different way is the Alcraft GT. The all-electric machine is in the final design phases and depending on sufficient crowd funding will enter production soon.
At the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, MINI will cater for two very different markets with the Electric and John Cooper Works GP Concepts. The latter should form the basis for the wildest road-going MINI yet.
