Le Mans–legend Tom Kristensen will make his return to this year’s Goodwood Revival event, which is being held at the Goodwood Circuit in England on September 11–13, after a two-year hiatus. Kristensen will compete in the RAC Tourist Trophy (TT) category, alongside numerous heavy hitters from years gone by.
Held annually at the historic circuit, the Goodwood Revival sees a plethora of vintage racers of all backgrounds take to the track. With only cars and bikes from the 1950s–’60s motorsport era present, teams and fans often get into period-correct mood themselves, donning vintage garb and creating a memorable portal into Europe’s rich motorsport history.
Kristensen will be joined by fellow former 24 Hours of Le Mans victors Emanuele Pirro, Richard Attwood, Jackie Oliver, Andy Wallace, Jochen Mass, and Mark Blundell. Kristensen retired from full-time racing in November 2014, ending a career that included a record six wins at Le Mans.
But as is the custom at events like the Revival, the cars are the real stars. Over £150,000,000, or NZ$353,480,000, worth of cars will be competing in the TT alone, with Kristensen to be behind the wheel of a 1963 Lister Coupé — a car campaigned previously by former British Touring Car–driver Anthony Reid.
Many more legendary drivers and riders from past and present are yet to be announced, with Formula 1, IndyCar, sports car, touring car, MotoGP, superbike, and road-racing competitors all set to be represented.
