The cars, the drivers, the vintage outfits - and smashing weather, Goodwood Revival is back!

Goodwood Revival | Press Article 17/04/24

The Goodwood Revival has made an incredible return to the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex today in spectacular fashion, with epic racing, vintage fashions and plenty to see and do.

Three parades on track celebrated Hot Rods, Sir Stirling Moss and British Racing Motors. This year, the Revival is hosting one of the largest ever gatherings of Hot Rods in Europe, as well as paying tribute to ‘Mr Goodwood’ himself, Sir Stirling Moss, who passed away last year. British Racing Motors are celebrating 70 years since they first appeared on a Grand Prix grid with an assembly of F1, F2 and Can-Am cars and today the Duke of Richmond unveiled the “new” V16, an exact recreation of the original.

With Official Practice taking place for many of the weekend’s races, the scene is set for this evening’s Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy. Newly-renamed from the Kinrara Trophy and contested by Jaguar E-types, Ferrari 250s, Aston Martin DB4 GTs and AC Cobras, the Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy will also see Jenson Button make his historic racing debut.

Over on the Revive and Thrive Stage in the new ‘Make-Do and Mend’ area, Richard Hammond discussed his latest venture, the launch of a new restoration workshop ‘The Smallest Cog’ with father and son partners Neil and Anthony Greenhouse.

Visitors to the Over the Road area of the event, which opened on Thursday evening, have enjoyed films including Annie, The Secret Garden and Grease at the Revival Cinema presented by Sky Cinema, while the Bonhams Auction has also opened for viewings ahead of the Sale tomorrow afternoon.

The Duke of Richmond also unveiled the dates of the Eroica Britannia festival which will take place on Saturday 6 – Sunday 7 August as he welcomed Eroica regulars to the Revival.

And for those unable to attend this year’s event, they can tune in and witness all the action on the Goodwood Road Racing channel.

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 a less disposable world, where “make do and mend” was a way of life rather than a casual slogan.

The Revival is, at its heart, a celebration of craftsmanship and sustainability, from an age when possessions were made to last and be cherished. It promotes a thoroughly modern ethos – to “reduce, reuse, repair, restore and recycle” – in the most authentic way possible. All the cars are original, having been lovingly maintained since new, many of the outfits have been handed down through generations, and even the retailers specialise in pre-owned artefacts – everything from clothes and accessories to automobilia and books.

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