About the Goodwood Revival During the Second World War, the Goodwood Motor Circuit was a key Battle of Britain airfield and home to several Spitfire squadrons. When the RAF closed the base after the war, the landowner ÂFreddie March, grandfather of the current Earl of March - turned the perimeter road into a racing circuit, and Britainâ€™s first post-war motor racing meeting took place at Goodwood on September 18, 1948. Over the next 18 years, the circuit became one of the most popular and prestigious in the world, before closing its doors to contemporary motor racing in 1966.
Exactly 50 years after that first meeting, Goodwood Motor Circuit reopened with every detail recreated - and the Goodwood Revival was born. Since 1998, the circuit has come back to life each September for a magical weekend that recreates the golden era of its glorious heyday - from star drivers on the track to the actors dressed as ‘bobbies’ and ‘spivs’, from the air displays to the Mods and Rockers, the Goodwood Revival really is a unique, unforgettable weekend.
What to Wear The Goodwood Revival is as much about recreating the fashion and culture of the postwar years as it is about historic racing cars. Each year, everything within the perimeter of the Motor Circuit is transported back in time to the 1940s, 50s and 60s - including the spectators, who are encouraged to dress in authentic period clothing for their visit. Fashion experts, Fleet Street critics and eagleeyed photographers will be on the hunt for the most glamorous, eye catching looks throughout the weekend. Then, at the end of each day, a panel of judges awards prizes to the most stylish ladies and gents in attendance. When planning your outfit:, however, remember that you should be prepared for any kind of weather during your visit.
FOR THE LADIES Fashion is always at the heart of the Goodwood Revival. It's a chance for you to put together your most daring creations. Whether you favour a pood le skirt, pencil dress, bellbottoms or a Mary Quant mini-skirt, there are plenty of ways to look the part. How about a WWII military uniform, be it NMFI, WMF or ATS? Or the dungarees and headscarf of a country Girl? Even a 1950s rockabilly dress wouldn't look out of place at the Revival. FOR THE GENTLEMEN Unless you arrive on a classic BSA Gold Star motorcycle, jeans are a rare sight at the Revival. Think smart, gentlemen - from herringbone tweed of the 1940s and the famous flannel suits and penny loafers of the 1950s to authentic wartime uniforms, there are plenty of ways to create a stand-out look. If you fancy something a little more flamboyant, why not buck convention and style yourself like the teenagers of the time? Teddy Boys, Rockers, Beatniks and Brylcreem - come on chaps, step out in style. For more on how to look the part, take a look at theRevival Style Guide at www.goodwood.com
Get Closer to the Action! ON THE TRACK The drivers spend Friday setting up their cars and getting used to the track in preparation for the official races, which take place on Saturday and Sunday (not forgetting the special Friday 'evening' race). The races are organised to reflect the types of cars and categories that competed here at Goodwood during the circuit's heyday. Even the names of the races are steeped in Goodwood history - the St Mary's Trophy, for instance, was always the saloon car race at Goodwood, and still is to this day. THE PADDOCKS Entry to the paddock enclosure is restricted to GRRC badge holders, and period dress must be worn. However; access to many of the infield paddocks, which include over half the cars and all the bikes, is unrestricted.
SPECIAL PARADES As well as the races, every Revival features special parades - these may be a tribute to a celebrated driver; or a quirky look at transportation from the past. Look out for them on the track between races! AIR DISPLAYS As a former WWII airfield and Spitfrre base during the Battle of Britain, Goodwood is proud of its aviation history.
