Sauber reserve driver Giedo van der Garde is to make his Goodwood Revival debut later this season.

Van der Garde, who raced for Caterham in Formula 1 last year, will share an AC Cobra with regular Revival runner David Hart during the RAC Tourist Trophy Celebration Race in September.

"I’ve heard so much about the Goodwood Revival from friends and fellow racing drivers, but never been able to make it myself," said the Dutch racer, who tested the Sauber C33 earlier this week.

"So to have the opportunity not only to come to such a world-renowned event, but also to race an iconic sportscar – the AC Cobra – with a good friend of mine, was too good an opportunity to miss.

"You can’t slide a modern Formula 1 car and still be fast, but the Cobra was made to go sideways, so I’m really looking forward to it."
