Cars and bikes of Steve McQueen to be celebrated at the Revival by Sky Cinema

Goodwood Revival | Press Article 16/04/24

This year, the Goodwood Revival will pay tribute to one of the greatest actors of a generation, as Earls Court presented by Sky Cinema brings together the highlights of Hollywood icon Steve McQueen.

Continuing the partnership between Goodwood and Sky Cinema, the Earls Court Motor Show will be transformed into scenes from some of McQueen’s most memorable appearances on the big screen.

Representative vehicles from The Great Escape, Bullitt and Le Mans will be on display alongside the cars which ‘The King of Cool’ favoured for his own personal garage.

Arguably the most famous movie car chase in history will be recreated as a Ford Mustang GT390 and Dodge Charger R/T 440 Magnum return side-by-side as they did in 1968’s Bullitt. Meanwhile, a Gulf-liveried Porsche 917K, a Ferrari 512S and a Porsche 911S 2.2 will represent cult classic Le Mans.

Turning the clock back to 1943, a BMW R75 bike with sidecar and a Ford V3000 S Truck will sit with the very Triumph TR6 Trophy bike that Steve McQueen used to try and escape from the German Army in The Great Escape. The Triumph was actually dressed as a BMW for the film.

Finally, a Jaguar XKSS, an Austin Mini Cooper S Mk2, a Porsche 356 Speedster and an Indian Chief motorcycle will represent McQueen’s own personal collection.

For those wanting a taste of the Sky Cinema Experience, you will be able to book tickets to the Revival Cinema presented by Sky Cinema from the Sky Box Office within Earls Court. Situated across the bridge in the Over the Road area, the Revival Cinema will be screening films throughout each day, starting with Disney’s feline favourite, The Aristocats at 10am. Dust off your leather jackets and dancing shoes for Grease at 12pm and 6.30pm, while the Downs will be alive with The Sound of Music at 3pm.

The last batch of Friday and Sunday tickets are available, but selling fast, so act quickly to secure your place. Contact the Goodwood Ticket Office, or call 01243 755055.
