Seriously Sideways in a Lotus Cortina at the 74th Goodwood Members Meeting

Submitted by on August 11, 2017

Richard Meaden Lotus Cortina Lap

Jump on board with Richard Meaden for a pinned and very sideways lap of the Goodwood Motor Circuit in a magic little Lotus Cortina.

“I’ve never formed a more fruitful partnership than with that Cortina – ‘Mighty 63‘ as it came to be known by myself and the team. Strapping into it was like pulling on a favourite pair of shoes, racing it a completely instinctive and utterly joyous process.” – Richard Meaden via Motorsport Magazine

Dickie’s lap is on point and on the limit as he drives the Cortina to pole position for the 2016 Whitmore Cup. He displays beautiful car control and race sense, using all of the circuit and navigating slower cars without dropping a tenth.

He went on to win the race as well, leading from start to finish.

Hit play, turn it up and enjoy the lap!
