Goodwood Revival | Press Article 27/05/24

  • Goodwood Revival’s opening track parade to feature up to 100 beach buggies and cars.
  • Goodwood Revival takes place Friday 6 – Sunday 8 September.
  • Saturday tickets are now sold out. Friday and Sunday tickets remain at

Goodwood Revival is pleased to share further details of the event’s track opening parade, as a contingent of up to 100 pre-1966 beach buggies and cars is set to take part in a parade around the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit under the September sun.

Set to be the first of its kind at Goodwood, the impressive collection of beach buggies and cars will take to the track each morning to formally open the event.

This year, Meyers Manx is celebrating 60 years of its original beach buggy. Designed initially for the beaches of California by Bruce Meyers, the marque dominated desert racing in its time, breaking records across the Baja peninsula and creating a pop culture phenomenon. Established in 1964, the VW Beetle-based buggy was a personification of its creator – Californian engineer, boat builder, surfer and artist, Bruce Meyers and since then, has been a staple on beaches and dunes across the world.

Having previously been joined by a variety of vehicles, including the event’s biggest-ever motorcycle parade last year, the Revival’s track opening parade wows the crowds with an eclectic array of machinery and this year is set to be no exception.

Taking place across the weekend, the track opening parade will join the full race schedule which is set to run exclusively on sustainable fuels.

About the Goodwood Revival
The Goodwood Revival is the world’s greatest historic motor race meeting, and the only sporting event of its kind to be staged entirely in a period theme. More than just an unrivalled weekend of historic racing, it is an immersive celebration of vintage lifestyle, championing exceptional craftsmanship and the enduringly fabulous stories told by second-hand treasures. ‘Revive & Thrive’ is the thoroughly modern message woven through the Revival landscape; a clever stitch with which the old is made new again, it runs through every carefully restored classic car, each beautifully preserved piece of clothing as it is passed from one generation to the next.

It is, proudly, the world’s biggest and most glamorous second-hand event.
