The event near Chichester, taking place 25 years after the first Revival, will celebrate Goodwood’s 75 year-motorsport history lots of exciting celebrations are planned including a wonderful gathering of cars which originally competed in 1948. It will also honour driver Carroll Shelby, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday in 2023.
Shelby took part in what is arguably the most dramatic race Goodwood has ever seen – the 1959 RAC Tourist Trophy, when Stirling Moss took over Shelby and Jack Fairman’s Aston Martin DBR1/300 after his own car caught fire in the pits, fighting back through the field to win the race and the World Sportscar Championship for Aston Martin.
Revival, taking place from September 8 to 10, not only celebrates motorsport but is also a nostalgic experience in itself. Many of its guests dress up in period clothing and immerse themselves in a golden era with vintage stands in a specially-created ‘high street’, a fairground, musical entertainment, vintage aeroplanes and even a vintage cinema screen all forming part of the fantastic event.
