“I can’t wait for the general meeting,” said Guy Smith, who won Le Mans in 2003.

“I’ve been to the Festival of Speed ​​with Bentley a number of times and it’s always such a fantastic event, but I’ve never competed in an event on the track. I’m still a relative newcomer to the Goodwood Circuit because although I’ve done a few manufacturer track days I still have a lot to learn.

“It’s a real old-school track with some fantastically sweeping, fast corners that always offer great racing. I’ve never driven historic races either but I’ve done a few historic rallies in a Mk1 and Mk2 Ford Escort at the RAC Rally which was great fun. I’ll be competing in the Gerry Marshall Trophy and from what I’ve seen and heard the race is epic.

“To see so many iconic cars I grew up with as a little boy on track together will be a real treat.”
