Goodwood Revival – What to expect

It is that time of year again – Goodwood Revival. The world’s greatest classic car show is upon us this weekend, from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th September, and so we have taken a look at what you can expect to see this year.

We know that many of our customers will know the motorsport meet-up like the back of their hand and have memories of many fantastic weekends at the famous Goodwood Estate.

Both on and off the track there will be plenty to enjoy for all the family, but here are our highlights to look out for.

Historic Racing

Synonymous with speed, Goodwood is a chance to see star drivers and riders, as the event attracts the finest in historic motor racing talent – and a host of famous faces from the motorsport world and beyond. Among the stars competing in 2016 were Tom Kristensen, John McGuinness, Giedo van der Garde and Jason Plato.

With a different schedule of races and performances planned for each day, there will be something to be fascinated by no matter when you head to at the West Sussex location. One particular race to look out for is the ever-popular St Mary’s Trophy saloon car race, which is scheduled for this Saturday.

Vintage Style

We all know that motorsport, and in particular Goodwood Revival, is not just about the cars, as daft as that might sound. It’s the whole experience, the people and most importantly the atmosphere.

There are a range of fashion shows attached to the event, with them all taking place in the Goodwood Emporium, sponsored by Mastercard. Perhaps spend your morning browsing the stalls and demonstrations around this area before venturing out to watch the high-octane High Speed Demonstration on the track at lunchtimes.

All-round Entertainment

Fun for all the family is guaranteed at Goodwood Revival, with competitions, games and challenges to get on with as well as educational workshops and demonstrations on everything motorsport.

As the sun sets, be sure to head over to Over The Road for an evening of live music and dancing.
