Quartet of modern era IndyCar stars to compete at fall Goodwood Revival

By

In the wake of last weekend’s Indianapolis 500, Goodwood is delighted to announce that a trio of current plus one former IndyCar stars will attend this year’s Revival, set for September 16-18.

The four international racers all will take to the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit and compete in the two-part Saint Mary’s Trophy for VIPs and owners, as well as the Royal Automobile Club TT on Sunday afternoon.

The four drivers confirmed to appear at the Revival are:

* Indy 500 record-breaker Helio Castroneves, who has won the race four times (2001, 2002, 2009 and 2021) alongside the likes of AJ Foyt, Rick Mears and AI Unser

* New Zealand’s Scott Dixon, who has won the IndyCar Series an incredible six times, was the 2022 Indy 500 pole winner, and sits third on the all-time race winners list behind AJ Foyt and Mario Andretti.

* Four-time IndyCar Series champion and three-time winner of the Indy 500, Dario Franchitti

* NASCAR superstar Jimmie Johnson who between 2006 and 2016 won the title seven times, equalling the record of Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt, named Rookie of the Year in his first appearance at the Indy 500 last weekend.

“It’s a privilege to be joined by some of the most renowned and successful IndyCar drivers at this year’s Revival,” said Charles Gordon-Lennox, the 11th Duke of Richmond, owner of the Goodwood Estate. “I am so delighted that Helio, Scott, Dario and Jimmie will be joining us this autumn, and we are all looking forward to the incredible spectacle these legends of motorsport will bring to the event.”
