Michael Gans Takes Pole Postion In The 2017 Goodwood Trophy


The legendary Goodwood Trophy provided all the usual thrills and spills for the wet through spectators, with Michael Gans holding his nerve to cross the chequered flag.

American charger Michael Gans mastered tricky conditions to win the Goodwood Trophy for 1930-1950 Grand Prix and Voiturettes. Pole-sitter Paddins Dowling had looked like a likely challenger for outright honours, but his ERA tangled with former winner Mark Gillies’ similar car during the early running with both machines being eliminated on the spot.

Last year’s victor Callum Lockie driving Sean Danaher’s Maserati 6CM was also in contention, only to lose pace during the early running.

Then the rain came down and Gans asserted himself at the front, from fellow ERA runner David Morris, with Lockie recovering to third.
