Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News - www.good­ ❚

The 75th Good­wood Mem­bers’ Meet­ing will see Lister rac­ing cars bat­tling to win the in­au­gu­ral Scott-Brown Tro­phy.

Cel­e­brat­ing 60 years of Lister’s most fa­mous model – the Knob­bly – 30 cars, in­clud­ing Jaguar and Chevro­let-en­gined mod­els, will go wheel to wheel at the Sus­sex cir­cuit’s sea­son opener on 18-19 March 2017.

Scott-Brown is syn­ony­mous with Lister. De­spite be­ing phys­i­cally hand­i­capped, 5ft-tall Wil­liam Archibald ‘Archie’ Scott Brown took nu­mer­ous F1 and sports car wins in the 1950s. He died af­ter a crash at SpaFran­cor­champs in 1958, aged 32.

Laura Gil­bert-Burke of Good­wood says: ‘This race will be a real high­light of the Mem­bers’ Meet­ing.’
