New race for Goodwood meet

The event, named in honour of Italian superstar Achille Varzi, will be an addition to the roster for the 75th Members’ Meeting taking place on March 18 - 19.

In a statement Goodwood said ‘the Varzi Trophy will form part of the 12-race programme during the Springtime spectacular’.

Varzi achieved great success in the 1930s for Alfa Romeo, Auto Union and Bugatti having switched from motorcycles to cars.

It added the race will cater for cars that competed up to 193 and feature a ‘mouth-watering line-up’ including ‘beauties’ from Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Delahaye, Maserati and Talbot-Lago.

A limited number of public tickets for the 75th Members’ Meeting are available and are expected to be sold out in the next few days.
