Goodwood Remembered is a fascinating book which includes a unique collection of previously unpublished photographs, sketches and recollections of Peter Redman, an enthusiastic spectator. As well as over 150 of his photographs from the late 1940s and 1950s, Peter Redman has included more than 50 sketches of cars and drivers of the period and 13 of his cartoons that help bring motor racing at Goodwood between 1948 and 1960 to life.

The book is full of interesting snippets. Bernie Ecclestone’s second place in a 500cc race, and World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio nursing an “off-song” Cooper-Bristol into sixth place in a Formula Libre race, are just two examples. It is a fascinating insight into the range of racing cars and drivers at Goodwood in that period: from World Champions such as Fangio, Farina and Hawthorn to handicap races for lady drivers.

Goodwood Remembered will be of great interest to anyone who remembers those times and for the huge number who follow historic motor racing or want to know more of the roots of modern motor sport.

If you are one of the tens of thousands who attend the Goodwood Revival meetings or the Goodwood Festival of Speed, this book is an ideal companion.

Goodwood Anecdotes is the second book by Peter Redman recalling events at the Goodwood motor circuit in the early years, and includes personal stories from 47 of his friends and acquaintances. Their unique and often amusing anecdotes, together with more than 200 of their photographs, bring to life those wonderful days spent watching the famous, and not so famous, driving fantastic machines of various shapes and sizes.

Contributors include several racing drivers, an engine tuner, a team mechanic, a marshal and an officer of the law. Most of their tales, like the photographs accompanying them, have never previously been published.

…the young man who built himself a kit-car so that he could go motor racing and went on to become a works driver for two of the top sports car teams of the day.

…memories of Mike Hawthorn by a friend who knew him before he was famous, who shared his love of Riley sports cars and who owns Mike’s car to this day.

…of cycle racing, which started at Goodwood before motor racing and continues to this day.

…and much more.

    “A rather special book—an extremely easy read and at the same time, really interesting. Absolutely loaded with information.”

    “It was a privilege to write the foreword to Peter Redman’s 2007 nostalgia masterpiece… Goodwood Remembered. I am very pleased that he has done it again with Goodwood Anecdotes.

    There is nothing quite like first hand accounts of the ‘good old glory days’, and Peter has extracted and cajoled another superb collection of memories and photographs from a range of enthusiasts who were there on the spot at Goodwood in its famous ‘hey days’! As the Goodwood circuit, the Festival of Speed and the Revival go from strength to strength, the famous Sussex venue inspires more interest and fortunately more stories from its colourful history.

    And the 200 new photographs out of personal collections are treasures in themselves. A great job!”
