A step back in time: Goodwood Revival is back

Goodwood Revival 2013 Dressed UpAs Goodwood Revival is nearing we look at what to expect at this year’s sold out event and take a look back at some of the action from last year.

Last year’s Goodwood Revival had a couple of very special visitors in the shape of our owner’s mum and dad, who very kindly offered up a few images from the event.

Sporting such fine garb (and hiding their Volvo out of sight of the many fabulous vintage and classic cars) they showed that you don’t have to be mad about classic cars, vintage buses, or heritage racing to enjoy one of the year’s finest events.

Goodwood Revival AustinGoodwood Revival only really stands second to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, when it comes to summer automotive events. However, Goodwood Revival, brings something new to the party that other classic car events just can’t match – a sense of fun, heritage and openness to those that don’t give two hoots about cars.

Classic cars and motorcycles are clearly the backbone of the event, along with racing, a couple of flybys and even some helicopter rides, but there are also the many more subtle sides to the event that result in an all-round event that everyone can enjoy – plus you get to dress up!

Goodwood Revival 2012 trackThis year’s event will include:

Goodwood Revival 2012 Vintage carAs the 2013 event is completely sold out for all three days, there is not much you can do about getting tickets if you haven’t already got them.
