There’s something distinctly magical about the Goodwood Revival. The atmosphere, the fashion, the buzzing pits and the door-to-door action on track give this yearly motor racing festival its own unique identity. Goodwood Volume 04: Risk and Reward distills all that magic into a beautifully-crafted publication — 160 pages filled with the people, the stories and the incredible cars that make the Goodwood Revival what it is.
Our fourth volume in the Goodwood series asks the questions that are as old as motorsport itself – how does one balance risk and reward? What is a driver willing to put on the line in the pursuit of glory, and when is enough, enough?
In search of answers, we first look at the life of the great Italian pilota Alberto Ascari in an attempt to understand the intimate relationship between risk, reward and fate. The Revival’s jaw-dropping Kinrara Trophy, which sees some of the world’s most valuable cars battling wheel-to-wheel around Goodwood’s historic circuit, also tempts fate in its own way — we search for the kind of nerves it takes to push these irreplaceable machines to their very limits.
Some of the UK’s greatest motoring pioneers follow next — the Le Mans-dominating Ecurie Ecosse, the doggedly-determined TVR and the story behind 1957’s electrifying British GP at Aintree that saw Britain take its first Grand Prix win with Stirling Moss and Tony Brooks at the wheel of a very English Vanwall.
Volume 04 rounds out with a love letter to the quintessential Italian car, the Fiat 500, as well as a look back at the last two decades of the Goodwood Revival through the eyes of a racer, and plenty more.
