Goodwood Revival Friday

14:56 Thank you for joining us at the Goodwood Revival today, we'll be back again in the morning with a packed day of racing.
14:56 There's an early chequered flag due to fading light, so Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen win the first race of the 2017 Goodwood Revival - the Kinrara Trophy.
14:44 Further drama for the E-Type as Meins leaves the pit with the passenger side door open, so he'll have to come in once again.
14:43 Huff finally pits from the lead, Keen assumes the lead as Cottingham also owed a pit stop. Kristensen loses time lapping cars and is now 11s back of the leader, with Bryant on his tail.

14:40 Van Riet, in second, is effectively the leader as Huff must stop. Keen is right on the tail of the Ferrari, with Kristensen 7s behind.
14:38 Huff leads, but needs to stop, Cottingham in second, and van Riet third.
14:37 15 minutes remaining, back under racing conditions.
14:34 What was shaping up to be a fight to the flag is going to be a sprint, as there's just 17 minutes left on the clock, with the safety car still touring round.
14:33 The race leader has stopped on track! Further drama! The safety car, which was due to come in this lap, will continue for at least one more tour so the Greensall E-Type can be recovered.
14:32 Just noticed the Huff / Meins E-Type has three windscreen wipers, all working to keep a clear view.
14:29 The safety car is now waving cars through, to collect the race leader which leaves Greensall back in a dire position. Race leader, but he needs to stop, so will lose a lot of time to those who came in quickly.
14:26 One saving grace for Greensall is that the safety car picked up Huff, who is second on the track, so the leader has almost a lap lead.
14:24 Incidentally the safety car has been called to recover the Owen / Clegg Chevrolet Corvette which went off into the barriers.
14:22 Safety car! That turns the race on its head, as Greensall and Huff are trapped on circuit as the pit lane is closed. Advantage to Keen and Kristensen.
14:20 Minshaw hands over to Keen with 31 minutes left to run. The race is on!
14:19 Five second penalty given to Greensall for missing the chicane, which means Minshaw is effectively just five seconds behind. Huff is setting fastest laps and quickly reeling in third place.
14:16 Lucky escape for race leader Greensall, as he misjudges his braking at the chicane but is able to swoop past without drama. Once upon a time he'd have been straight into a concrete wall...
14:15 Huff slowly gets going again without handing over to Richard Meins, and the World Touring Car Champion is straight back on the hunt.
14:13 Rob Huff has his hand out of the window, and there could be a problem with the E-Type.
