The GRRC Fellowship has welcomed Mike and Charlie Cooper into this unique international motorsport community, helping to mark the second anniversary of the Fellowship’s founding. The Coopers are the third and fourth generation members of a unique racing family, whose history in the sport dates back to the 1920s and has been crowned by winning the 1959 and 1960 Formula 1 world championships as well as creating the Mini-Cooper.
Goodwood has become to motorsport fans what Hogwarts is to wizards, and the Goodwood Fellowship is entering its third year as the best means for fans to get closer than ever to the action.
“In 2019, Goodwood celebrated the Cooper name as never before with the 60th anniversary of our first Formula 1 world championship titles at the Revival,” said Mike Cooper.
“Charlie and I, the family as a whole, have been left with indelible memories of the most magnificent gathering of Cooper racing cars and mementoes of our history, and the Fellowship means that we will stay close to the action throughout the year to come.”
One of the principal benefits of the Fellowship is the opportunity to buy tickets to the celebrated Goodwood Members’ Meeting, which opens the 2020 motorsport calendar on March 28-29 with a relaxed and informal weekend crammed full of historic racing action and crowned by the S.F. Edge Trophy for pre-1920 racing cars and the Gerry Marshall Trophy for Group 1 saloon cars.
“There is a really impressive range of benefits for the Fellowship to enjoy that really bring you closer to the heart of the Motor Circuit and the Festival of Speed,” Mike Cooper added. “Charlie and I will be delighted to wear our badges at every opportunity!”
