Zurich, September 13, 2012. Credit Suisse is gearing up for the 2nd Credit Suisse Historic Racing Forum which takes place tomorrow, September 14 at the Goodwood Revival.

Credit Suisse, which is now entering the fourth year of its partnership with Goodwood Revival, will hold the 2nd Historic Racing Forum at the Credit Suisse-sponsored Press Centre tomorrow, September 14, from 2.30 to 3.15 pm. The Forum, entitled 'Is the spirit of historic racing under threat?' will be followed by an Afternoon Tea at 3.15 pm, offering journalists the chance to network after the debate.

Prior to the Forum at 2.15 pm there will be a unique photo call including the panelists, Goodwood CEO Lord March and some acting members of the Goodwood crowd dressed in period costume. None other than Sir Stirling Moss is expected to make a brief appearance.

The eagerly-anticipated 2nd Historic Racing Forum will involve a panel of leading authorities from the world of motorsport. This includes Desiré Wilson, the only female driver ever to win an F1 race; Spa; ex-F1, sports car and touring car driver, Jochen Mass; as well as former BTCC, sports car and Le Mans 24 Hour driver, Anthony Reid.

The session, which will again be moderated by renowned motoring journalist Simon Taylor – as the 1st Historic Racing Forum was in Monaco in May – is set to provoke a range of discussion points from the diverse members of the panel. Media will also have the chance to meet the panelists following the 45-minute debate.

Jochen Mass commented: 'I have attended the Revival many times before, and to me it is undoubtedly the leading historic racing fixture on the calendar. I am delighted to be taking part in the 2nd Historic Racing Forum. The inaugural Forum in Monaco earlier in the summer proved a real success and there was plenty to be discussed. I am convinced the second instalment will be a riveting discussion that will air many different opinions about the spirit of historic racing, something for which Goodwood is so synonymous. I am already looking forward to taking part.'

The 2nd Historic Racing Forum is Credit Suisse's headline event at this year's Revival. Tomorrow, Credit Suisse also launches its photographic competition for media, the inaugural 'Credit Suisse Photo Award for Goodwood Revival'. The competition will test the skills of photographers in three different categories – Action, Atmosphere and Historic Racing Forum.

Credit Suisse's sponsorship of Goodwood forms part of the company's ongoing commitment to classic car racing, an association that began back in 2004 when it hosted two exclusive rallies for the first time. The company then went on to nurture partnerships with leading international historic motor sport events: the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and of course Goodwood Revival.
