Sir Jackie Stewart honoured at Goodwood Revival

Sir Jackie Stewart honoured at Goodwood Revival

Three-time Formula One world champion Jackie Stewart was honoured at the Goodwood Revival event, which took place over the weekend.

Racing legends Sir Stirling Moss and John Surtees were both present as 24 cars driven by Sir Jackie throughout his career lined up on the grid.

Sir Jackie himself led the parade away in Tyrrell 006, the Cosworth Ford-engined car in which he secured his 1973 title.

Surtees followed in an ex-Team Surtees Lola T70, similar to that which Sir Jackie had driven in 1965.

The variety that followed these cars, spoke volumes of the Scot's versatility and the way in which Grand Prix drivers of the 1960s and 1970s would compete in more than one race at an international event.

Notable was the Cooper-BMC Formula 3 machine, driven by his son, Mark - the same car Sir Jackie first proved himself during a test session here at Goodwood in 1964.

Former F1 Redbull driver Mark Webber was among the line-up of drivers, he piloted the Matra-Cosworth MS80 in which Sir Jackie had won his first F1 title in 1969.

Richard Attwood, Le Mans winner in 1970, was at the wheel of a BRM similar to that in which Sir Jackie won his first F1 race.

Sir Jackie Stewart said: "Goodwood Revival' is one of the great events of the year and it's a great honour to have this kind of celebration put together by Lord March. It was at Goodwood where I first drove a single-seater 50 years ago and it changed my career."
