Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button is set to make his historic racing debut at this year’s Goodwood Revival. The classic motorsport event takes place between September 17 and 19 at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex.

On the Friday evening of the Revival weekend, Button will take part in the Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy. Formerly the Kinrara Trophy and first held in 2016, the sunset race will see Ferrari 250 SWBs take on the likes of Aston Martin DB4GTs, AC Cobras and a host of early-60s GT racers. Button will be sharing the driving seat of a Jaguar E-type, prepared and run by RJN Motorsport, with Alex Buncombe.

 

The dynamic duo will be back in action on Sunday afternoon in the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration, one of the most prestigious races in all of historic motorsport. The one-hour, two-driver event, will see the finest closed-cockpit cars go head-to-head, with Button and Buncombe competing in their 1963 AC Cobra. Originally a factory-prepared racer for Shelby American, the car is now prepped and run by DK Engineering. The race at 2.30pm will form part of ITV1’s live broadcast of the Goodwood Revival on Sunday 19 September.

 

Details of the confirmed Revival Race Schedule are available here, with further driver details due to be announced in the coming weeks.
