Roach wins scintillating Chichester Cup thriller

For immediate release: Saturday 9 September 2017

Stuart Roach put on a stellar display of car control to win the Chichester Cup, which kicked off Saturday’s on-track action at the 2017 Goodwood Revival Meeting. The veteran charger led from pole position to the flag, only losing the lead momentarily shortly after half-distance to eventual second place driver Peter de la Roche. It was a scintillating battle, as Roach’s Alexis wasn’t able to shake de la Roche’s BMC Mk2 as they streaked ahead of the chasing pack. Last year’s winner Michael Hibbert had looked like a possible winner during the early running, only to spin out of contention with seven minutes of the 20-minute race left to run. Roach survived a late scare after being forced onto the grass by an errant back marker without losing the lead.
