Touring Car Hero Rob Huff to Race at Goodwood 72nd Members’ Meeting

Former World Touring Car champion Rob Huff is the latest star name to confirm his attendance at the Goodwood 72nd Members’ Meeting on 29-30 March, 2014.
The 34-year-old Englishman, who claimed his WTCC title in 2012, will race in the Gerry Marshall Trophy for Group 1 touring cars and also take part in the weekend’s high-speed demonstration of turbocharged Formula 1 machinery.
The Gerry Marshall Trophy, a two-part race featuring a full grid of upto-1982 tin-tops in authentic period liveries, will include Huff sharing a 1980-spec Rover 3500 SD1 with Tim Scott Andrews against a mass of Triumph Dolomites, Ford Capris, Mazda RX7s and more.
Huff’s F1 outing will enable the Cambridgeshire driver – who has achieved podium finishes at the Daytona and Dubai 24-hour races already this year – to achieve a long-held ambition of getting behind the wheel of a thoroughbred grand prix machine.
He will drive a mighty Renault RE30B, as raced during a 1982 season in which the team recorded four grand prix victories through Rene Arnoux and Alain Prost, accompanied by upto 29 other turbo F1 icons from Ferrari, McLaren, Lotus, Toleman, Zakspeed and others.
Rob Huff: “I can’t wait for the 72nd Members’ Meeting. I’ve been involved in the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival before and I’ve always had a really good time on the track and off it. To race a Rover SD1 will take me back a few years because my granddad used to take me to school in one every day, and to get behind the wheel of the Renault turbo is going to be something pretty special because I’ve never driven a grand prix car before and I’m told that this machine, in particular, is a bit of an animal.”
