This Friday 17 September the doors to the Goodwood Revival will open, welcoming back visitors to the famous Motor Circuit for the first time in two years. This year promises to be more special than ever, and with the weather forecast looking promising, event-goers are in for a memorable Revival.

On the track, the world’s greatest historic race meeting will make a sensational comeback. Highlights include the Stirling Moss Memorial Trophy, often dubbed ‘the most beautiful motor race in the world’ with pre-1963 two-driver GT cars battling it out on track as the sun sets on the Friday evening of Revival. 

Saturday will host the John Whitmore Trophy presented by Sure, a one-off race for 2021 that will celebrate 60 years of the Mini Cooper by pitting 30 of the diminutive saloons up against each other in a 45-minute, two-driver challenge. Six-time Olympic Champion Sir Chris Hoy will go head-to-head with a host of Le Mans, World Endurance, British GT and World Touring Car Champions.

The headline race of the Revival – indeed probably the most famous historic motor race anywhere in the world – is the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration on Sunday, featuring an amazing array of 1960s GT cars, as well as a stellar line up of VIP drivers, including world champions from Formula 1, Formula E, touring cars and sports cars.

Alongside the other much-loved races, the Settrington Cup children’s race will return on Saturday and Sunday. Arguably the most competitive race of the weekend, Austin J40 pedal cars will take to the track with their 4 to 10-year-old drivers all eager for another shot at Revival glory.

Across the weekend we are celebrating 70 years since British Racing Motors made its first appearance on a Grand Prix grid and will be assembling one of the largest ever collections of BRMs including Grand Prix, Can-Am, F2 cars as well as the legendary Rover-BRM Turbine Le Mans car. For the first time ever, 5 iconic BRM Type 15 V16s will appear together, and on the Friday BRM will unveil the “new” V16, an exact recreation of the original.

Away from the track, the Bonhams auction will be back at the event and Revival will also celebrate Sir Stirling Moss and the 75th commemoration of the 1946 London Victory Parade, alongside appearances from the Grenadier Guards over the weekend. Event-goers will also have a chance to see the launch of Eroica Britannia, ahead of the iconic vintage cycling festival due to be held at the Goodwood next year.

Goodwood Revival is a real celebration of sustainability and there are lots of things for people to get stuck into and experience. Visitors come to escape modern life for a moment, to revel in a time when people cherished and looked after their belongings, repairing, restoring and repurposing them for a lifetime of use. The antidote to fast fashion and fast consumerism.

A new ‘Make-Do and Mend’ corner will showcase a host of restoration projects and, more importantly, how Revival guests can apply some of these methods in modern day life, while a 600 sq ft ‘Dig for Victory’ allotment will make its debut.

Revival Style Adviser Bay Garnett, will be on site talking to visitors about their second-hand outfits, as well as judging the ‘best in show’ in the new Revival Car Boot Sale – which promises to be the most glamorous vintage Car Boot Sale ever. Vendors include The Circle, The Circle of Style and EarlyBird Club while Liberty’s vintage edit is also set to pop up at Goodwood. Watch out for our Style Police and ‘Best Dressed Competition’ judges as they’ll be on the lookout for the best and most authentic outfits across the weekend too.

The Timetable for the event is online now and will be available to view over the weekend with live updates in the Goodwood Motorsport App. The must-have companion app is available now in Google Play and Apple App Stores and will feature Revival specific content ahead of the event.

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.
