The Goodwood Revival, the tenth event set to take place this year from 31st August to 2nd September, relives the glory days of Goodwood Motor Circuit, which – along with Silverstone – was Britain’s leading racing venue during its active years between 1948 and 1966. During this time it hosted contemporary racing of all kinds, including Formula One, the famous Goodwood Nine Hours race and the celebrated Tourist Trophy sports car race.

Now, for three days each year, the circuit echoes to the spine-tingling bark of golden-age Grand Prix cars from the Fifties and Sixties, thundering sports and GT cars, as well as historic saloon cars and little-seen Formula Juniors. Many of these important historic racing cars are driven by famous faces from motor sport past and present. Sir Stirling Moss, John Surtees, Sir Jack Brabham, Phil Hill, Derek Bell, David Coulthard, Damon Hill, Gerhard Berger, Johnny Herbert, Wayne Gardner, Giacomo Agostini and the late, great Barry Sheene have all taken part at the Revival.

The Goodwood Revival is a unique event, spectators and competitors taking a step back in time, with the majority getting into the spirit of the event by dressing in appropriate clothing from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. All vehicles on site throughout the weekend are also of the appropriate vintage, with none of their modern counterparts allowed onsite!

But the Revival is not just about dressing up, and getting teary-eyed about the good old days! The historic cars, most of which look as sleak and shiny as the day they were built, are put through their paces in three days of motor racing. From the moment the track opens at 9 o'clock on Friday morning the cars come to life and get back where they belong, being driven on the limit around Goodwood's original circuit.
