Lockie Storms to Victory in Goodwood Trophy Thriller

10 September 2016

Callum Lockie claimed the first win for a Maserati in ten years in a thrilling Goodwood Trophy race which kicked off Saturday’s on-track action. Five-time winner Mark Gillies appeared set to take yet more silverware at the off, the start coinciding with a brief shower. The American-based Briton dominated the early going aboard Dick Skipworth’s ERA A-type R3A, holding an eleven-second lead over Lockie’s 6CM with ten minutes left to run. However, the journalist’s time at the front ended shortly thereafter as he was forced to pit, mechanics scrabbling to fix an oiled plug. Gillies rejoined a minute later, only to spin at St. Mary’s, but he still managed to cling on for ninth place overall.

Lockie scampered off into the distance at half-distance, only to lose rear-end grip late in the day. This allowed Alfa Romeo man Matt Grist and Tom Dark in the fabulous Bugatti Type 73C to close, but former GT champion Lockie worked his way through traffic with aplomb and held on to the chequered flag.
