This Month's Showcase

Gallery - Goodwood Revival (16th to 18th September)

For the petrolheads and classic cars enthusiasts among us, the annual Goodwood Revival is a particularly special event. It’s not only the world’s greatest historic motor racing event with pre-1966 race cars battling it out on the track, it’s also the only motor racing event to be held entirely in period dress. 150,000 spectators attend every year, all of them dressed as if attending one of the Goodwood motor races when the track was first opened in 1945 until it closed in 1966. Mods, rockers, fashionistas, forces personnel, vicars and mechanics. They all come. I’ve even seen 1950’s milkman complete with a genuine order book. This also makes it the worlds biggest retro event.

So why am I talking about this?  Because I’ve been going every year since they reopened the track and the Revival started in 1998 and I’ve taken a stand in the shopping area there for the last ten years (it’s the only outside event I attend).  One of my cars (a 1958 MGA police car), has been used by the racing officials as the course car for the last 24 years, so it’s a bit of a family event.  

If you happen to be going, do come and see me.  I’m offering a 10% discount to members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club (GRRC) and I’d be happy to extend this to all the website customers that come and see me over the weekend.  With around 4,000 posters on the website, I can’t show everything at the event but listed below are some that I plan to take.  If you’d like me to bring anything else along, just get in touch and I’ll add it to the list.
