The Goodwood Revival experience is one that those who attend will never forget, with riders, drivers and famous faces all strutting their own individual way around this historic closure.

1998 saw motor racing return to sacred Goodwood, the first time since its closure in 1966. Re-branded and given a facelift, the event has since become one of the most prestigious on the motorsport calendar, in addition to that the only event to be staged entirely in period collection dress.

As the spiritual home of British motor racing, the Goodwood circut staged classic races and the famous Tourist Trophy for sports cars. A host of top drivers in the day came to Goodwood on Easter Monday, from Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss in the 1950s to Jim Clark and Graham Hill through the 1960s.

The circuit was established by Freddie March (later 9th Duke of Richmond), himself a Brooklands winner, and was revived by his grandson Charles, Earl of March, in 1998. The Revival event is a magical step back in time to the romance and glamour of motor racing as it used to be in Goodwood’s heyday.

This years gallery below is proof indeed that this historic event is not only here, but here to stay.
