1952 Carrera Internacional de Goodwood. Nuevo Cooper T20 - Bristol, con los conductores Alan Brown, Eric Brandon , Juan Manuel Fangio, Mike Hawthorn

Ad ogni modo non risulta che J.M. Fangio abbia poi realmente gareggiato, in quella occasione potrebbe essere presente come ospite...

Infatti il pilota "vero" iscritto era nientemeno che John Cooper, seduto sulla macchina di Hawthorn con la tuta bianca dietro a Fangio... In piedi con gli occhiali, Charles Cooper.  Per la cronaca la gara è la Lavant Cup, 14 aprile 1952 e Hawthorn, Brown e Brandon finirono primo, secondo e terzo (in ordine di talento...). Cooper si ritirò...

Once again very nice drawings. The #11 of Ecurie Richmond from the 1952 British GP had a light blue nose ring according to a very nice color photo from the GLP Collection 1950 to 1960 part 4. I hope this minnor correction doesn't offend you. Yours: Phil the fact finder 

Hi Phil, no problem for a correction but I only rely on what I see and can verify. I never propose anything of my own invention.

14 aprile 1952, The Easter Goodwood Meeting.

Ci sono 8 corse:

Lavant Cup Race, 6 giri  F2 (2000cc)
Earl of March Trophy Race, 6 giri  F3 (500cc)
Chichester Cup Race 6 giri, Formula Libera
Richmond Trophy Race, 12 giri, Formula 1 (1951)

First Easter Handicap (6 Laps—Unblown Sports Cars)
Second Easter Handicap (6 Laps—Cars in Racing Trim)
Third Easter Handicap (6 Laps—Cars in Racing Trim)
Fourth Easter Handicap (6 Laps—Cars in Sports Trim)

La cronaca:

Chichester Cup Race (6 Laps—Formula Libre) The astonishing Hawthorn and his impressive Cooper-Bristol, engine note crisp and clean, gear-changes mere punctuations of exhaust note, tail slides skilfully held, won again, by a very good margin, from Tony Rolt, with the ERA-Delage. The first lap produced a thrill, when AG Whitehead’s old ERA spun leaving the chicane. Luckily, the following cars missed it but the incident slowed them as much as it speeded up onlookers’ hearts. Ken Richardson, late of BRM, in Vandervell’s “Thinwall” 4½-litre Ferrari, did not get as far as this, as he followed his habit of leaving the course. Duncan-Hamilton was going safely in third place in his Talbot, pursued at a discreet distance by Poore’s big Alfa-Romeo. Allard’s Chrysler TT Allard, with four carburetters and four-speed gearbox, was coming along strongly and had the satisfaction of passing the great Fangio (Cooper-Bristol), although Fangio was going through the corners with great elan and obviously having fun, after being baulked on the first lap. The order of the remainder through the chicane on the last lap is indication of how the race went—Poore, Allard, Fangio, Kelly (Alta), James (4CLT Maserati), Baird (Baird Griffon—tubular chassis containing Baird’s 4CLT Maserati engine), Gerard (1½-litre ERA) and GN Richardson (ERA). It is interesting and cheerful that Brian Shawe-Taylor entered an ERA for Thompson or Abecassis to drive, although it non-started. Wharton retired after a tough drive in the Scuderia Franera 2-litre ERA. AUTHOR Motor Sport. Maggio 1952
