The romance and glamour of motor racing as it used to be, the Revival is the only historic race meeting to be staged entirely in period dress and is a return to the halcyon days of Goodwood as the spiritual home of British motor racing.
It’s an unabashed celebration of flat-out wheel-to-wheel racing, around the sweeps and curves of this classic circuit, which remains unchanged since its heyday. The inaugural Revival opened on 18 September 1998, when the Earl of March drove around the circuit in the Bristol 400 in which his grandfather, the 9th Duke of Richmond, opened the track 50 years before. It’s now the world’s most celebrated historic motor racing event, with legendary drivers and riders from the past and stars of today, race enthusiasts and collectors from all walks of life, coming from all over the country to soak up the unique atmosphere. Previous attendees include Sir Stirling Moss, David Gandy, Rowan Atkinson, Sir Chris Hoy, Derek Bell, Martin Brundle, Jay Kay, Nick Mason, Chris Evans – and many more.
What to wear? Pick your favourite car from 1948 to 1966, and dress as if you’re driving it there.
