Ferrari 250GT SWB 'Breadvan': Time For Tea?


The Goodwood Revival is over for another year, and once again it provided a fantastic weekend of unparalleled classic motorsport. The jewel in the crown of 2018's event was the Kinrara Trophy; billed a the world's most valuable race thanks to a grid worth over £200 million, it more than lived up to expectations.

As the sun set over the former RAF airfield, the field of Ferraris, Aston Martins, Jaguars and the like provided the sort of spectacle that Revival dreams are made of. Aside from an incredibly close call caused by a spinning DB5, the highlight of the race was undoubtedly the battle for first between Emanuele Pirro and Niklas Halusa in the 250GT SWB 'Breadvan' and Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen in an E-Type.

Trading places again and again they ensured a thrilling conclusion to the first major race of the weekend. Unfortunately, the creators of the Goodwood highlights video have opted for backing music over the symphony of engines which accompanied the race, so below we have both the key action from the Kinrara, and a less edited on-board account which focuses on the battle for first place. Enjoy!

    Watched this on Friday evening - great racing between the two cars and the 4 drivers, esp. from Halusa to keep Minshaw very much on his toes.

    I MUST get myself along to the Revival soon...

    Slap some RainX on it an call it a day.
    Might be worth .005gal per lap in reduced drag,
    not to mention less distracting.
