Here's a link to the live stream of this event.
Spotted three Dolomite Sprint just half an hour ago during a qualification race. Gerry Marshall Trophy with Camaro's, Mini 1275 GT's, Capri's, SD1's and more.

You're correct, there should have been five Sprints, but 19 and 20 went out of qualifying very early, 19 - the ex Andy Rouse Broadspeed Sprint had a head gasket failure and didn't get out for the first race, should be repaired for tomorrow. 20 - Tim Morely's Sprint did get out to qualify in a different group and went on to be the top placed Sprint in the first Gerry Marshal race. This race, I think, becomes the grid for the second race tomorrow.

The background picture shows a dolly sprint if I'm not mistaken...

Once again this was an absolutely brilliant event and a sheer joy to spend the weekend at. The racing was thrilling in the extreme, especially the Gerry Marshall race, though the Dolomite's seemed a lot slower than the Capri's (which was not the case in period). All the cars were beautifully presented throughout and the quality of the driving something to behold frankly.

The other races were marvellous too - I particularly enjoyed the one-make 911 Porsche race, were the second place man spent most of the time looking out of his front quarter light as the car was so sideways.

A tragedy to see the near priceless Mercedes SLR rear-end the Lister in the Saturday twilight race, but both drivers were thankfully okay.

This magnificent and much more sociable event is rapidly taking over the Revival as my favourite Goodwood weekend.
