David Coulthard to race at Goodwood Members' Meeting
The ex-Williams, McLaren and Red Bull F1 driver will make his competitive Members' Meeting debut later this year
Formula 1 grand prix winner David Coulthard will return to Goodwood for the 76th Members' Meeting and race a Mercedes 300SL in the Salvadori Cup.
The 46-year-old Scot will drive the Mercedes for the new IWC Schaffhausen Historic Racing Team against Jaguar D-types, Lister-Jaguars and Birdcage Maseratis in the 20-minute race for sports and sports-racing cars produced between 1955 and 1960.
Former Williams, McLaren and Red Bull F1 driver Coulthard competed at Goodwood's Revival in 2016, driving an Austin A35 in the St Mary's Trophy, and demonstrated a Mercedes 300SL - his dream car – at last year's Members' Meeting.
But his race outing in the Mercedes on March 18 will be his Members' Meeting competitive debut.
IWC is the timing partner for the Goodwood Members' Meetings. It was behind Coulthard's appearance last year and other special moments such as Mika Hakkinen and Jochen Mass driving a pair of Mercedes W196 'Silver Arrows' at the 2016 event.
Brand ambassador Coulthard will be the first driver to race for IWC's new team, and the firm has indicated it plans to call on its relationships elsewhere in motorsport – including the Mercedes F1 team, meaning potential involvement for Lewis Hamilton or Valtteri Bottas – for future events.
Though Coulthard retired from full-time competition at the end of his DTM career in 2012, he has continued to contest events such as the Race of Champions – winning this year's edition in Saudi Arabia earlier this month.
