F1: Goodwood Revival to pay tribute to Stewart

Goodwood Revival to celebrate 50th anniversary of Sir Jackie Stewart's 'discovery' with special parade
This year's Goodwood Revival will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sir Jackie Stewart's 'discovery' with a trio of special parades that will honour the three-time F1 world champion during the September 12-14 event, it has been announced.

Already making waves in sportscar racing, Stewart was spotted testing in early 1964 by Goodwood track manager Robin Mackay, who helped to arrange a Formula 3 trial at the circuit with Ken Tyrrell's team that went on to open the door to worldwide stardom for the then 24-year-old young Scottish racer. The very Cooper T72-BMC he drove during that test is one of 24 cars that will form part of the tribute to Stewart.

His three F1 World Championship titles will be marked by a 1969 Matra MS80-Cosworth and a Tyrrell 006 of the 1973 period.

The Lola T90-Ford, which famously broke down during the closing stages of the 1966 Indy 500 while Stewart was over a lap ahead of the field, will feature too, as will the BRM P261 in which he claimed his maiden F1 World Championship race win at Monza in 1965.

Stewart's sportscar successes will be represented by machinery as diverse as a Ford GT40, two open-topped Lola T70 Spyders and both Jaguar and Buick-engined Ecurie Ecosse Tojeiros that provided the platform for much of his early success, plus a sensational Ferrari 330 P4 he raced in 1967 as part of a squad of drivers that helped the Scuderia win that year's World Sportscar Championship.

Stewart will take part in each of the three parades with one held in the afternoon on each of the days of the 2014 Revival.

Good One! Jackie Stewart should receive Special recognition for his special contribution to F1 racing to make it safer. He would not accept the drivers being prone to terrible injuries and worse in the '60s. Jackie Stewart Forced the FIA to instigate measures to make F1 safer for the drivers. Hats off to Jackie Stewart !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
