SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Glorious! Goodwood gets green light to return

Vroom, vroom!
Motor racing has witnessed some breath-taking comebacks, none more extraordinary than when the late, great Niki Lauda roared off the grid at the Italian Grand Prix just six weeks after he'd been given the last rites following a catastrophic crash at the Nurburgring.

This time, I can disclose, it's the turn of the Duke of Richmond and Gordon, who, at the age of 65, has wrenched the Goodwood Festival of Speed back on track after it had seemingly fallen victim to the coronavirus, like so much of this summer's sporting action.

Fans, who travel from around the world to watch the festival at the Duke's 12,000-acre West Sussex estate each July, had been bitterly dismayed by its cancellation.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is back on track after it had seemingly fallen victim to the coronavirus

Charles Gordon-Lennox, 11th Duke of Richmond and owner of the Goodwood estate has rearranged the sporting calendar to ensure the event will go ahead

In 2019, the Festival paid tribute to Michael Schumacher for the 25th anniversary of the German ace's first F1 World Championship.

The special display saw a grid of cars that spanned Schumacher's career, including every one of his title-winning Ferraris

But I can reveal that the Duke, who initiated the festival in 1993, has rearranged the sporting calendar to ensure that it will eventually go ahead after all.

'Despite everything, it's going to happen,' a friend tells me.

A spokesman for the Duke confirms: 'It is going ahead, but in October rather than July.'

But it is not a complete victory for fans hungering to see past masters, such as Mario Andretti — a world champion both in Formula One and IndyCar — and to watch vintage single-seaters steam up Goodwood's famous hill-climb course.
'It will be behind closed doors,' adds the spokesman.

Fans will, though, have the consolation that the action will be televised.

It's a vital factor — for the estate as much as for the fans.

'You've got the sponsors to consider,' an aficionado explains. 'If you don't go ahead, they might not come back next year.'

The Duke acknowledges as much via the festival's website, which candidly states: 'As we rely so heavily on our headline events, their absence places not only future events but even the long-term future of the estate under considerable strain.'

The chequered flag can't come soon enough.

 

A nice little earner for Florence 

Little Women has led to big money for Florence Pugh.

I can disclose that the Oxford restaurateur's daughter, who now lives in Los Angeles, has seen her fortune rise to more than £400,000 on the back of her first major Hollywood role.

The 24-year-old's funds at Flo Pug Ltd are up by almost £200,000 from £229,000 the previous year, according to her latest accounts.

She was nominated as best supporting actress at this year's Oscars for her role as Amy March, and can expect to see her coffers swell further.  

 

007 daughter's beach role? Live and let fry

The 27-year-old, who is staying in New York, lamented her lack of sunscreen when she shared this snap of herself on the sands.

'I went to a beach and left looking like a lobster and went and ate one,' says Ella, whose mother is Craig's ex-wife, 안전놀이터 Scottish actress Fiona Loudon.

 

However fed up Prince Philip is at Windsor during these restricted times, he won't watch The Crown, admits Tobias Menzies, who plays the Duke of Edinburgh in series three and four of the hit Netflix drama. 

'I'd love it if [Prince Philip] watched it, but I don't think he does, sadly,' says Menzies.

'He probably watches documentaries and has no time for fiction.' Isn't The Crown meant to be factual?

Boozy star thought lockdown hangovers were coronavirus

My Family star Robert Lindsay admits he resorted to drinking heavily to cope with lockdown, to the point where his hangovers were so bad that he would mistake them for symptoms of Covid-19.

'I started drinking a bit, and finding myself drinking at 4pm and doing things I've never really done.
