Porsche Racing Legend Richard Attwood Crushes It At 73rd Goodwood Member’s Meeting: Video

Richard Attwood is a veritable legend of the race track, and one whose legacy is inseparable from that of the Porsche marque. The British racing driver was deeply involved in the development of the iconic Porsche Type-917 race car, and went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the automaker in 1970, co-driving a 917K with the luminary Hans Hermann.

Like any great motorsport legend of his era, Richard Attwood is still actively involved in racing to this day – albeit in more of a hobbyist capacity. He recently attended the 73rd Goodwood Member’s Meeting, where he ran circles around many younger, more sprightly drivers, all driving race-prepped, pre-1967 Porsche 911s.

The Goodwood Circuit in the United Kingdom has, of course, as large and important a history as Richard Attwood himself, and plays host to the Goodwood Revival every September. Perhaps even more well-known is the Goodwood Festival of Speed, held annually on the grounds near the road course.

So just how little of his professional racing chops has Mr. Richard Attwood lost over the past few decades? Watch the video below from Porsche to see for yourself:
