Credit Suisse recommits itself to 18th Goodwood Revival

Filed under: Classic News |

Goodwood RevivalThe Goodwood Revival is emblematic of historic racing and plays host to some of the most iconic drivers and vintage racing cars between September 11 and 13. Reaffirming its commitment to the motor circuit and historic racing festival, Credit Suisse is proud to present a number of Media Moments to involve all key media throughout the event.

The Credit Suisse Race Control building at the motor circuit will be a base for many of the Media Moments throughout the festival. On Friday, September 11, the restored building will host all accredited media with several interesting and exclusive insights planned for the day. These include light-hearted “fireside chats” and interview possibilities. The Friday will end with the Freddie March Memorial Trophy where all Goodwood-accredited media are invited to enjoy drinks and finger food throughout the night race – from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the roof terrace of Credit Suisse Race Control.

On the morning of Saturday, September 12, all Goodwood-accredited media will be invited to join Credit Suisse’s annual Media Breakfast at Credit Suisse Race Control from 8:30 a.m. The 6th Credit Suisse Historic Racing Forum will follow from 9:00 a.m. onwards with friends and patrons of the Credit Suisse Classic Car Program.

The Historic Racing Forum will bring together a riveting group of vintage racing experts including Sir Stirling Moss OBE, Dario Franchitti, Jochen Mass, Derek Bell MBE, Alain de Cadenet, and Jackie Oliver, to discuss the fascinating theme of “Historic Racing Culture – Europe versus America.”

Motorsport presenter and broadcaster, Henry Hope-Frost, will moderate the panel of motor racing legends, famous for their European and American racing talents. After the discussion, a short photographic opportunity with the panelists will end an insightful Forum session.

To finish the weekend, Credit Suisse will be celebrating a friend and patron of its Classic Car Program, Sir Stirling Moss. Credit Suisse will play tribute to the never-before-celebrated anniversary of the driver’s “Quadruple Whammy” wins at the Mille Miglia, British Grand Prix, RAC Tourist Trophy, and Targa Florio in 1955.

Media are invited to celebrate this momentous racing achievement with Sir Stirling Moss, Lord March, the Credit Suisse racing friends, and Karsten Le Blanc in front of the garden of Race Control with a gift-giving ceremony and not-to-be-missed photo opportunity of the proceedings.

Finally, taking place over the whole weekend, the annual Goodwood Revival Photo Contest will be returning. All Goodwood Revival-accredited media are invited to enter their images for the following categories:

  • Action
  • Atmosphere (including paddocks)
  • Credit Suisse Media Moments

A prize will be awarded to each winner, with a perpetual trophy also being given to the overall winner, as chosen by long-standing photographer and Goodwood Estate owner, Lord March.
