Goodwood to honour Freddie March

The Goodwood Revival 2011 will celebrate the 80th anniversary of Freddie March's victory in the 1931 Brooklands Double Twelve race by paying special tribute to the Ninth Duke of Richmond at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

Freddie March, a racing driver and the grandfather of Lord March, won the race for the Works MG racing team 80 years ago.

The Goodwood Motor Circuit, which hosted the first public motor racing event in the UK after the world war, was established by Freddie March in 1948.

The MG team's Brooklands paddock will be recreated at this year's Revival, which will run from September 16 to 18.

The event will feature a minimum of six authentic racing MG C-types, including two Midgets which took part in the Brooklands Double Twelve race.
