Despite the dreadful weather at this years Goodwood Member’s Meeting that was held on 17th and 18th of March, the fifth edition since 2014 of this great event was very entertaining. Klassische Automobile (KW) once again brought the ex “Scuderia Ferrari” Alfa Romeo 8C Monza to Goodwood. On Saturday the weather was incredibly challenging, as for the first time in our history in vintage motorsports we were faced with snow during qualifying. As Moritz did not really feel comfortable in these conditions, he only qulified 8th on the grid.
Although still freezing cold on Sunday morning the track was dry and after a good start and some overtakes Moritz was fourth with only a very well driven BMW 328 seperating him from the podium. With 2 laps left Moritz used the full power of the Monza’s great straight eight cylinder engine to squeeze by on the Lavant straight managing to keep the position until the finish line.
Our biggest thanks to Lord March for again organising a wonderful event in these challenging conditions and to Jim Stokes for a perfect preparation of our Monza.
