Top 10 things to see at the Goodwood Revival
The Goodwood Revival is the world’s greatest historic motor race meeting; the only sporting event of its kind to be staged entirely in a period theme, as well as a celebration of sustainability. From cherished and cared for classic cars to precious vintage fashion, the Revival’s ethos is a thoroughly modern one: reduce, re-use and recycle.
Revival is all about shared passions – for cars, for speed, for fashion. Visitors come to escape modern life for a moment, to revel in a time when people cherished their belongings, repairing, restoring and repurposing them for a lifetime of use.
Just like each year, more surprises will be in store, however in the meantime, we’ve put together a list of the top 10 highlights at this year’s event.
WORLD’S GREATEST HISTORIC RACING
Witness hundreds of rare and priceless cars, driven by champions past and present, competing for the most coveted trophies in historic motorsport, including the Sir Stirling Moss Trophy, the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration and arguably the most competitive race of the event, the Settrington Cup children’s pedal car race.
VINTAGE AND SECOND-HAND FASHION
The lengths our Revival community go to perfect their outfits are incredible and the stories behind the outfits are special and timeless. For those who need a little guidance, we’ve put together online guides to help you source second-hand pieces and period costumes. Watch out for the style police and ‘Best Dressed Competition’ judges as they’ll be on the lookout for authentic outfits across the weekend too.
TWEAKED LAYOUT AND NEW CELEBRATIONS
2021 brought a number of exciting changes to the Goodwood Revival, including a variety of new immersive areas to explore throughout the three days. This year, we continue to tweak the layout, making it easier for guests to venture round the historic Motor Circuit and explore some new areas this summer.
NEW REVIVE & THRIVE VILLAGE
At Revival, we revisit a time when people would ‘make do and mend’ cherished belongings for a lifetime of use, reconnecting with the best of the past as an antidote to today’s throwaway culture.
In 2022, the new Revive & Thrive Village will embrace that strikingly relevant mantra with workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions and talks that celebrate the joys of vintage and share ways to reuse, repair and repurpose pre-loved belongings.
RENOWNED RIDERS AND DRIVERS
The Revival always attracts the finest in historic motor racing talent – and a host of famous faces from the motorsport world and beyond. 2022 will welcome Indy 500 stars Jimmie Johnson, Scott Dixon and Hélio Castroneves, along with the return of Formula 1 World Championship, Jenson Button.
THE PERFECT SETTING FOR CELEBRATING
If you’re celebrating a special occasion or just want to gift yourself the day you deserve, dining and entertaining experiences at the Goodwood Revival are a sure-fire way to make your time at the event extra special. Wherever you choose to spend your day, you’ll enjoy delicious food and drink, alongside exceptional views and your own private area to relax and socialise in.
From the moment you enter the event, you’ll be transported back in time. From getting your hair styled at one of our Betty’s Salons, to Instagram-worthy backdrops, your friends will definitely suffer FOMO. We’d love to see your Revival photos so please tag us and use #GoodwoodRevival when sharing.
FREDDIE MARCH SPIRIT OF AVIATION
A magnificent concours d’elegance for pre-1966 aircraft which brings together some of the most elegant and rarely-seen machines from the history of aviation.
