Goodwood Revival Meeting

09.09.16 - 11.09.16
near Chichester, West Sussex

This legendary race for historic cars is a celebration of the golden era of motor sports, the 1950s and 1960s.

The Goodwood revival looks back to a period - 1948-1966 - when the Goodwood motor circuit was, alongside Silverstone, Britain's leading race venue.

The competing cars and motorcycles are all from this period and are driven by famous faces from the world of motor-racing: Sir Stirling Moss, Damon Hill, David Coulthard, Giacomo Agostini and Derek Bell have all participated.

The circuit, meticulously restored, is a time capsule, which perfectly preserves the ambience of its heyday. Many visitors wear appropriate historic costumes, and the whole weekend is a nostalgic tribute to the 1950s.

Goodwood has introduced motoring sport's only ladies' day - fashion gurus comb the crowd for the most immaculately dressed and glamorous 1950s pin-ups, who are rewarded with champagne and flowers.

In addition to the motor racing there is a display of pre-1966 aircraft, as well as stunning aerial displays, which capture the spirit of historic aviation (Goodwood was a WWII aerodrome).
