Goodwood Revival

The Revival is held at the Goodwood Motor Circuit, just three miles from Chichester. Each September, this three-day event attracts over eighty thousand spectators to see around three hundred historic racing cars in high-speed action. In the spirit of the racing there from 1948 to 1966 everything is as it used to be. Famous drivers and visitors alike dress in period costume to take a step back in time to that era.
