We will join drivers from around the world at Goodwood on Saturday 23rd May for the Benjafield’s Sprint, which will include some of the most valuable cars on the motoring scene today.

Benjafield’s Racing Club will host a fantastic day of motorsport as an eclectic mix of cars ranging from a 1907 Itala to the latest premium electric cars from Tesla Motors take to the Goodwood circuit with an overall estimated value of around £50million.

Several original Bentley Blowers, an original GT40, and a selection of Brooklands cars make up some of the 40 or so cars expected to be in action, which will see both the cars and drivers compete against the clock in a series of timed runs.

There will also be a parade of vintage Bentleys as well as a few surprises, all to mark the 25th anniversary year of the Benjafield’s Racing Club.

Spectators are invited to attend at no cost and will have the chance to wander through the paddock so they can witness these stunning vehicles in close proximity.

Competitions Captain William Medcalf said: “This event is all about celebrating these fantastic cars and allowing both drivers and spectators the chance to come together to share their passion for motoring. We hope people will come along and enjoy the spirit of the event.”

Drivers wishing to enter their vehicles should contact William Medcalf by calling Tel: +44 (0) 1730 895 511 or by email to competition@benjafields.com.

Benjafield’s Racing Club was formed in 1990 and takes it’s inspiration from Dr Dudley Benjafield, the man who won Le Mans in 1927, with his co-driver Sammy Davis, in a 3litre Bentley.

‘Benjy’ was a member of the ‘Bentley Boys’, whose ‘high life’ antics out of their cars became as famous as their achievements in them. Benjy combined a passion for racing, for family, and work, with a desire for good company and good food, a set of values Benjafield’s Racing Club strives to emulate.
